John O’Reilly is a visual artist based in Dublin. With a background in graffiti, John deconstructed the traditional American graffiti forms, aiming to develop unique aesthetic and structural approaches. He was among the early contributors to an emerging Irish graffiti community. In 2008, He began painting urban landscapes in oils primarily off marginal spaces he had often painted in as a graffiti artist. His oil works attempt to capture pastoral like atmospheres of the city. Recent paintings are inspired by the effects that a medium may have on our lives, often represented by vehicular impact on the built environment.
