Conor says boom
after two years spent struggling to digest all the food he ate back in ’08 and ’09, Conor Harrington came back to fame festival with the very same mission of the first two editions: eat and paint as much as possible. the video above is a sketch of the week he spent in town, i tried hard to find a song that would link with the strong aesthetic of his paintings but no luck, i ended up using one that matches perfectly with his personality, the sweetest dude in the world.
in the pictures below we can all stare at his works and ask ourselves how can he do it, these were made in the old town
and this was on the wall of a elementary school
now, let me arrogantly challenge you, find me another public wall that have been painted so carefully, in the middle of the city, with a 95% broken lift with no insurance and without any kind of authorization from anybody and let me know. police even came by at some point, there are more and more question marks each time the two sides (fame and institutions) collides, but no answers so far, we’ll keep going
on another note, i’ll post soon about Brad Downey and Akay’s collaboration. they’ve already been here and we did a great mess, it’s just so great that it needs time to be edited and posted. soon
