It’s been a while since I profiled a street artist, but the beautiful, powerful, masked women by Finbarr Dac, A.K.A. Fin DAC, were too good to pass up. Fin DAC is an Irish artist based in London, and his career is completely upside down. After becoming a successful and sought-after artist in the London art scene, he started exploring street art, putting his paintings wherever he could find an unguarded wall or roof. He’s currently in the middle of his first U.S. “tour,” running around from city to city, making the world a more beautiful place. Street Art News has been following his U.S. adventures and sharing his artwork’s locations when they can, but the guy’s elusive! Don’t worry. His more traditionally-formatted works can still be purchased.
“Fin D.A.C. has defined and perfected an atypical paint/stencil style that ignores the accepted visual language of street art almost completely. He calls it ‘Urban Aesthetics’ – a modern-day take on a 19th century art movement. A self-taught and non-conformist artist, Fin DAC’s realist work and skilled stencilling has earned him an incredibly successful solo show in 2010 and has made him a regular fixture in high end gallery shows. He is also dedicated to putting his work on the streets which is now all over the world from Bogota to Berlin.” -About Fin DAC, West London Art Factory
I thoroughly approve of the idea of sharing one’s art for free once it’s in high demand. Even this man’s career arc is a work of art!
