street art belfast

Emic is an Artist based in Belfast at the Bankers Art Studio. Since 2012 he has been making street art and painting in his studio exhibiting works around the UK and Ireland.


The artist paints on walls and canvas using a combination of aerosols and oils. His art explores human identity and our connection to the contrasting worlds of the urban and the natural. The artwork presents themes of chaos, tranquility, technology and abandonment. We are constantly affected by our surroundings, be it manmade or natural.


Emic has been commissioned to paint large-scale street art across the country with clients such as Queens University and  Dublin City Council.


In 2015 he was awarded the Visual Artists Ireland DAS residency.
