New work from Irish Artist Conor Harrington. These 3 paintings were done in conjunction with the 13th Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
“In a way, I’ve always thought Belfast was the last place I could paint. They have such a strong tradition of sectarian murals depicting political and historical scenes from both an Irish Nationalist and British Loyalist agenda and although my work has vastly different intentions, my imagery could be perceived as being closer to 1 side of that political divide.”
