Fintan Magee is a wonderful street artist from Australia working in a Surrealist style. His work often contains a humorous twist. Fintan Magee was born in Lismore, Australia.

Magee earned a degree from Griffith University of Queensland College of Arts located in Brisbane, Australia.

In this clip we view Fintan Magee in action:

The artist is now based out of Sydney, Australia.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Magee has never been interested in doing wheat paste work or using stencils. He enjoys the process of creating very large murals.

The artist was influenced by children’s books illustrators in developing his social realist and Surrealist style.

What I like most about the artist is this statement.  Magee states that “It can take 20 years to become a great artist, I am 12 years into the journey.” Being an artist isn’t about learning one certain skill, its more of a lifestyle choice of always learning and yearning to learn more.
