Publisher's description: Though Conor Harrington began as an aspiring graffiti artist on the streets of Cork, Ireland, in the mid-1990s, he now holds the distinction of being the top-selling, living Irish artist. When his Dance with the Devil recently sold at auction, Harrington's work was described as "magisterial canvasses which unite the luxuriant, shadowy intensity of Caravaggio with the provocative roughness of the street." This book -- the first to chart his career in depth -- covers the nascent graffiti of his teenage years, his artistic awakening while studying at the Limerick School of Art and Design, and his subsequent London-based career, with solo gallery shows in London and New York. The book also contains striking photography chronicling both his large-scale gallery paintings and open-air murals across Ireland, the United Kingdom, the United States, Norway, Spain, Poland, and Brazil -- and even along the Bethlehem Wall. Also included are fascinating documentary photographs of Harrington's journeys and the artist at work, along with Harrington's personal commentary.
