He began his career as a graffiti street artist and in 1998 he enrolled into art college at Limerick School of Art and Design in Ireland. At this time he became interested in Hip Hop music and Graffiti. In further artistic exploration, Mr. Harrington took both the graffiti, pop art, as well as other modern art techniques to invent a style of art both unique and beautiful. His work can be perceived as a merge between classical and contemporary art with a touch of graffiti. The contrast from classical mixed with bright pop inspired color palettes is what gives his work character.

Conor Harrington has engaged with figures of soldiers in battle creating stunning masterpieces, which got him job opportunities working on Large building murals. The idea behind the soldiers came from parallels he saw between soldiers and Hip Hop culture; both built on elevating statuses and bling. Who knew graffiti and classical art would mix so good!
