Fintan Magee London Studio Visit
Australian muralist Fintan Magee is currently in London working on a new body of work for the upcoming two man show “Oceanic” with New Zeland artist Askew One. Presented by Rex Romae Gallery the exhibition opens in Shoreditch in a pop-up space later this week with a preview evening on Thursday 24th July.
We were lucky enough to catch up with Fintan last week in his temporary Hackney Wick studio in East London as he was putting the finishing touches to his new body of work. Drawing on his own personal experience, this series of figurative works on paper will see Magee create "a narrative surrounding his experience with the 2011 Brisbane floods and explores greater issues of climate change and the environment." With works for the show now complete, Magee has moved back into Shoreditch where he has begun work on a large scale mural within the exhibition space. Check out some of the teaser images of the work below and stay tuned for images of the mural he is currently working on.
The exhibition will also see the release of a limited edition collaborative print also titled "Oceanic" by Askew One and Fintan Magee which will be available to buy at the exhibtiion and online for those not in London.
Opening Reception: Thursday, 24 July, 2014, 6:00 – 9:00 pm Exhibition dates: 24 — 30 July, 2014
Location: 17-19 Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch, London EC2 (Map)
