The long wait by Fintan Magee. Created on the hughe gable of Quality Hotel Grand in Borås the piece stretches about 30 meters up in the air portraying a girl sitting in the tree branches.
Fintan Magee is a muralist based in Sydney Australia. Born in 1985 in Lismore NSW to an architect mother and father who was a sculptor, he started drawing at a young age and became involved in the Australian graffiti scene at the 13. Moving away from traditional graffiti in 2010 his large-scale paintings often inhabit the isolated, abandoned and broken corners of the city. Drawing from personal experience and the mundane his figurative paintings are deeply integrated with the urban environment and explore themes of waste, consumption, loss, transition, and the environment and his works contain a sentimentality and softness influenced by children’s books and the Low Brow art movement.
He has solidified his position as one of Australia’s leading public artists and has traveled extensively, completing projects in London, Vienna, Los Angeles, Miami, Atlanta, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Moscow, Rome and Dublin amongst others.
