Conor Harrington in Norway Street Art Video


‘Olde Norse’
sees London based Irish artist, Conor Harrington‘s visit to the far reaches of Norway this Summer. The video is the third collaboration between Harrington and cinematographer Andrew Telling. ‘I think this is by far our best film.’ Harrington explains ‘Pared back and super minimal [Telling] really captured the atmosphere of one of the most Northerly and isolated parts of Europe. This is one for the headphones, the music is composed and performed by both Andrew and Lucinda Chua. Watch the film for the music alone, I guarentee it’s worth it.’

Cork street artist, Conor Harrington was in the South of Italy recently to take part in the Fame Festival. ‘Fame’ is the Italian for hunger but Conor joked that he spent most of his time eating there.

The beautiful painting above is a called ‘Dead Meat’. On this ‘black and white biggie’ he tells us ‘I’m not sure how long this will last as we had no permission to paint it. Someone even called the police but Angelino sweet-talked them into allowing us finish, but I guess the fact that it’s on a kiddie school and I painted 2 nude women could be a bit of a problem…’ For a more complete account of Conor‘s work at the Fame Festival visit his blog, ConorSaysBoom.

Conor Harrington Back in Ireland 28 June 2011

Conor Harrington is one of the most ambitious and open artists to emerge from Ireland in recent years, with a deep respect for urban street and art culture. The good news is that he is back in Ireland and has already been painting in the capital last weekend. The great people at ANewSpace covered Conor Harrington‘s beautiful painting in Temple Bar in Dublin city centre and by all accounts it was an incredible spectical. Read more here »

The renowned street artist will also be taking part in the Ennis Street Festival, painting another original piece on the Glór building this coming Friday, July 1st.

Conor is originally from Cork, but is currently based in London. His work is an incredibly successful collusion between ‘fine’ art and ‘street’ techniques. According to Conor himself, central to his oil canvasses is “the male figure, referring to the masculinity of urban culture”. The men in Conor‘s paintings allude to the not necessarily heroic, but stoic and pensive male of the modernist painters; however the pieces are plastered with post-modern graffito flourishes in a pertinent clash of styles – “I’m interested in the dynamics between opposing elements” says the artist. Whilst both the male figures and abstract elements of the work are, with out doubt, contemporary, the emotions they transmit are timeless, if currently under-rated – dignity, courage and a quiet sense of duty to oneself and those around us. At a time when men are accused of being somehow redundant within society Conor‘s work is an intelligent and modest reminder of their positive emotional contribution. It also shows that graff doesn’t have to shock – or be soppy – to have substance.

The Clare Youth Service Music Project will be providing a musical backdrop to Conor‘s painting on the day, showcasing some of the young talent amongst the local DJs, producers and rappers in the Clare area. There will also be a breakdancing showcase by Cork based crew The Rhythm Rebels, hosts of the recent Livestylez festival. The Rhythm Rebels are Munster’s most active breakdancing group, taking part in national and international showcases and competitions and acting as one of the main promoters of hiphop culture in Ireland. This event will take place outside the Glór building and will allow the audience to sample both the audio and visual experience of street culture being presented.

The evening’s entertainment is free and open to people of all ages, and in keeping with all CYS events, will be a drug and alcohol free environment.

The event will run from 4pm until 8pm outside Glór, Ennis.
