street art belfast

Emic’s art lays between street art and fine art. Based in Belfast the artist has been practicing since 2012 and is currently a member of Vault Artists.


The Artist paints on walls and canvas using a combination of aerosols and oils. His art features photorealism combined with abstraction that seeks to reflect the delicate balance between the natural and the man made world.


Emic has been commissioned to paint large-scale murals across the UK and Ireland with clients such as Queens University, Dublin City Council and Belfast City Council.


In 2016 he was awarded the Visual Artists Ireland / Digital Arts Studios residency, a nationwide competition for Visual Artists.
