Well, we came across this great video just this morning, and we hadn’t seen it before. Recently Fintan Magee did some work at the Bundaberg Regional Art center, and it is a surprisingly insightful piece on the man and his work.
Check it out below – Fintan is one of Australias best, and this was a cool watch.
“Fintan Magee will be painting directly onto the walls of The Vault space to create a large scale mural in response to Sebastian Barry’s novel ‘Long Long Way’.
This highly acclaimed novel from 2005 charts the experience of a young man caught between the Great War in Europe and the war that is festering in his Irish homeland. Magee’s own heritage is part of the reason the novel is so appealing and inspirational for him. His father is from Northern Ireland, where large scale political murals are prolific and a part of the urban landscape.
Their influence on Magee is unsurprising given he has been visiting Ireland since he was five years old.”
