Magnificent giant photo-realistic murals that portray political and social issues by Fintan Magee

Australian artist Fintan Magee‘s murals are not only gigantic, but also of giant people. Human figures with proportions much larger than the environments of the paintings in which they are inserted. Often in surreal scenarios, where their landscapes eventually merge with those of the real world.

His works (including installations, paintings, and interior murals) are spread and exhibited in many cities around the world, including Sydney, London, Rome, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Cape Town, and Atlanta. In practically every continent, with the exception of Antarctica, of course.

Magee’s practice is informed by a profound interest in political murals, inspired by exposure at a young age to those of his Father’s native Northern Ireland. This is reflected in the socialist nature of his public artworks, which combine journalistic elements with public art. Magee’s work is driven by his recognition of the power of murals to communicate political and social viewpoints and thus divide or unite communities. Drawing from personal experience and the mundane, his figurative paintings are deeply integrated with the urban environment and explore themes of diversity, migration, and transition, waste and consumption, loss, and the environment. His works exude an inherent sentimentality and softness influenced by children’s books and the Low Brow art movement.
