Fintan Magee paints epic figurative murals all over the world from America, to Russia, to China, Europe and even Ireland. Growing up in Brisbane in Australia, a place I know well, Fintan cut his artistic teeth in the graffiti world, then went on to art college and has managed to bring the two together in his beautiful figurative murals. He also has gallery shows for his works on canvas and paper and he is starting to get into art installations too.
