'Watch Your Palace Fall' by Conor Harrington, 2017
HENI Publishing, London
Hand-signed by the artist/author on title page.
Since he began hair-farming and painting the streets of Cork, Ireland as a teenager, Conor has always tread a fine line between 'street art' and 'fine art', never aligning himself with a particular movement or aesthetic but instead pushing forward with his own unique representations of the world around him.
Conor's paintings and drawings combine historical re-enactment, F1 pit-stops, text and glamour models, his aim being to reflect the somewhat masculine visual culture we live in, juxtaposed with currently under-rated themes of dignity, courage and the quiet sense of duty to oneself and those around us.
