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 Studios.

 

The Artist paints on walls and canvas using a combination of aerosols and oils. His art features photorealism combined with abstraction that seeks to explore mans place in the world; both the natural and man made.

 

To date Emic has painted in the UK, Ireland, Europe, and South America.

 

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