Fintan Magee

Fintan Magee was born in 1985 in Lismore, Australia. He was encouraged by his parents to practice drawing since his young age. However, it wasn’t until 2009 that Magee began painting full time.

Magee was exposed to Brisbane’s graffiti culture since his early teenage years. Before he started creating canvas-based works, he was strolling the streets of Brisbane and scrawling his name across the city with vibrant and unique letterforms. The artist has moved away from traditional graffiti in the last couple of years and developed his trademark large-scale mural style.

Magee often comments on social topics of various people, like the migrant crisis, through his clever and authentic works. The artist has received a great national appraisal for his work portraying Felix Baumgartner in Brisbane and he has participated in various public art festivals in Australia and abroad since 2007.

The most common topics in Magee’s work are issues of waste, consumption, loss, transition, but also sentimentality and nostalgia related to childhood memories.
