Australian Fintan Magee has recently finished a giant new piece as a part of Out in the Open 2019. The artist has made multiple gable painting all over the world and is recognized between gable painters.
It has been an amazing process to receive a visit from the Australian artist, tells KIRK Gallery. The artist has been working very intensely on the gigantic gable painting for almost 14 days. He wants to express his gratitude toward the trust and that you always can help each other out, as he experienced it on Tove Ditlevsensvej. With a view over Aalborg, at the top of Vejgaard, you can experience the astounding new piece “Structure”, with incredibly loose and transparent strokes at the bottom of the painting, to the detailed top, where the artist wants to create a contrast, in both layers and material in the huge piece. Almost as aquarelle, as Fintan Magee expressed it himself.
