Featured Artist: Finbarr Dac

“In a relatively short urban art career, I have defined and perfected an atypical paint/stencil style that ignores the accepted visual language of street art almost completely – I call it Urban Aesthetics (a modern-day take on a 19th century art movement).

Hailing from Cork (Eire), I have lived the majority of my life in and around London. Self-taught and non-conformist, my influences range from dark graphic novels through to the works of Francis Bacon and Aubrey Beardsley.

I have painted/exhibited alongside respected artists such as Goldie, Nick Walker, Jamie Reid and Jef Aerosol. But in general, I shy away from the scene, keep my own counsel and shun the typical life of a street artist.

My commercial work includes commissions for The Royal Albert Hall, Armani, G-Star, Red Bull, Jaegermeister and London 2012

I am also Artistic Director at urban/digital art brand Beautiful Crime, and, as u may have already guessed, I have no social life 😛 “
