Inspired by Art: Around the World with Fintan Magee

20 February 2017

Australian artist Fintan Magee turns isolated corners of cities and sentinel-like silos into large-scale works of art. A world away from traditional graffiti, his murals have graced the sides of buildings all around the world. Many of his artworks are political (themes range from war to the environment); all are beautiful. Keep your eyes open as you travel the world – you might just spot one of his masterpieces. After all, they’re hard to miss.

Travel for me is about conversations and connections. There’s nothing like setting foot in a new land and meeting people a world apart. From talking to North Sea fishermen in Norway’s Lofoten Islands to breakfast chat at a B&B in my own back yard, there’s always a story to share and a tale to tell.
