Having created artwork since 1995, over the last 25 years, Maser has earned much respect professionally and has generated a large and dedicated following in Ireland and abroad – through his seamlessly imaginative and unique graphic style.
Having become internationally recognised for his expansive repertoire of contemporary visual art, Maser's artistic practice includes works on canvas, sculptures, prints, immersive installations, interactive exhibitions and exquisite large-scale murals.
His unique, artistic style draws upon numerous influences including optical art and mid-century art, and is regularly complemented with bold colours, pattern and text. Maser is ambitious and is unafraid to experiment with any artistic format.
Maser boasts an impressive list of exhibitions in high-end art galleries and has been commissioned to create original artwork by many prestigious arts organisations including, Art On Paper (USA), Lazarides (UK), the National Gallery of Ireland, the National Library of Ireland, Tandem Press(USA) and Graphic Print Studio. He also collaborated with President Michael D Higgins on a series of bespoke limited edition prints in 2018.
Ardú, featuring seven extraordinary murals from seven of Ireland's top street artists, arrived in Cork October 2020 injecting a burst of colour, vibrancy, and life into Cork city in lockdown - uniting the Leeside community through art, lifting its creative and community spirit at a time when it needed it most.
Ardú – the Irish for Rise' – bases itself on a theme of nostalgia and celebration. Cork City rose from the ashes 100 years ago following the Burning of Cork, and now faces the challenge to rise again.
At a time when we face shared and personal challenges, each of our artist's murals are a rallying cry to the city – a call to remember that we have been through terrible times before and we rose up. We can do it again. Join us for a celebration of Cork city's traditions, history, and resolution.
