About the Artist

John O'Reilly is a visual artist based in Dublin. With a background in graffiti, John deconstructed the traditional American graffiti forms with the aim of developing unique aesthetic and structural approaches. He was among the first contributors to an emerging national graffiti community.

In 2008, He began painting urban landscapes in oils primarily of marginal spaces he had often painted in as a graffiti artist. His oil works attempt to capture pastoral like atmospheres of the city. Recent paintings are inspired by the effects that a medium may have on our lives, often represented by vehicular impact on the built environment.
