|As a self-taught, non-conformist artist, Fin DAC is best known in the street art scene for his portrait exploration of emancipated and empowered female subjects. |
In a span of 12 years, he has defined and perfected an atypical paint style he’s dubbed ‘urban aesthetics’.
His work challenges the world to deviate from common sexualised views and colonialist attitudes surrounding the artistic depiction of women.
Favoring Eurasian subjects and inspired by heritage and traditional clothing, Fin DAC is thoughtful in the illustration of his models/muses: each piece reframing racial and sexual stereotypes and rewriting a narrative that celebrates the beauty in strength within each of their cultures.
In their public settings, Fin DAC’s murals command an audience, claiming ownership over their urban environment while equally portraying classically delicate features. Through this duality, each woman is both powerful and vulnerable, aesthetic and intellectual, physically capable and deeply emotional.
Born in Cork (Ireland), Fin DAC tours the globe relentlessly whilst paradoxically remaining an outsider to the urban art scene: typically finding more pleasure forging his own path focussed on individual and more meaningful projects.
