Musings on art and life.
Sketchy Inc prints are not your average print. I like to think of them as evolved photographs, or photographs of an evolved, parallel plane… The artist, Shane O’Connor, takes a seemingly ordinary snapshot of a cityscape, and turns it in to a surreal, fun other realm. Here, colours are distorted, there are strange planets visible in the sky and instead of heads people have.. sketches.
A native of Galway, Ireland, Shane originally started stretching his sketchy, creative legs around the city’s docks and canals, photographing friends and family, and developing his unique, fun style and colour pallet. Since then, he has gone on to develop his artistic process, and continues to amaze with his panoramas of Dublin city, where he now lives, and has recently added a print of his dog, Bear, to his portfolio.
The prints are vibrant, and full of detail, and Shane has truly honed his almost graphic artistic style to a fine art. Not just for my own nostalgic memories of Ireland but for the genuinely delightful feelings they invoke I, for one, would love to have one of these fun prints hanging on my wall.
