Brisbane based conceptual realist Fintan Magee sends us a new conceptual, figurative piece he just finished in the Mt Pleasant neighborhood of Vancouver, Canada as part of their local mural festival. Included in the lineup were a varied selection of illustrators, graphic designers, old skool graffiti writers, and practitioners of current trends like dark pop surrealism.
Fintan tells us that this mural, perhaps because of the unusual configuration, was a challenge – and you can see the original sketch he includes here of a couple who are local events managers who work in the performing arts.
“They are part of a new series I am doing that explores story telling through body language,” he says. “The work also uses public art to celebrate local workers and community contributors over celebrity or the grandiose.”
