Conor Harrington - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog

Conor Harrington is a street/graffiti/figurative/painter based out of Cork, Ireland.
“A painter first and foremost. If you asked me that 10 years ago I would have said a graffiti writer but now as I get older I’m trying to shake off all those labels. It’s a strange position for a lot of us these days. We come from graffiti and street art but now we want to move beyond that. That’s why I like the term post-graffiti a lot.”

“A painter first and foremost. If you asked me that 10 years ago I would have said a graffiti writer but now as I get older I’m trying to shake off all those labels. It’s a strange position for a lot of us these days. We come from graffiti and street art but now we want to move beyond that. That’s why I like the term post-graffiti a lot. It sounds pretentious but it’s the label that I find most accurate really. I used to do graffiti. Now I paint. But I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing now if I hadn’t painted on the streets. Simple.”
