When looking at these murals by Brisbane artist Fintan Magee they seem almost impossible to contain. Literally dripping with color, his bold images often bleed off the canvas and spill onto the street or sidewalk, fully utilizing every available surface, as if maybe even that isn’t enough. Via Analogue/Digital:
Moving away from traditional graffiti in recent years his guerilla murals often inhabit the isolated, abandoned and broken corners of the city. Mixing surreal and figurative imagery his paintings are deeply integrated with the urban environment and explore themes of waste, consumption, loss and transition and contain a sentimentality and softness influenced by children’s books.
