Conor Harrington Murals in Ireland

Conor Harrington is an urban fine art king, we all know that! Combining spray and oil paint for several years now, he is one of the big guys when it comes to merge the urban, street influenced dynamics and the classical painting techniques…

In the summer 2011, the Irishman home to Ireland for a big project including three murals, with both the journey and the paintings being inspired by Austin Clarke’s poem The Lost Heifer. Luckily for us, the entire trip has been documented and was finally published (six hours ago) entitled Black Herds of The Rain!

Back then Conor Harrington brought together Irish history, American icons (cows and cowboys) and his bloody brilliant technique and style and create some beautiful pieces. To put it in a nutshell, watch this thing, think about it and be impressed!
