Maser truly embodies the centric spirit of contemporary visual art in Ireland today. Having created artwork since 1995, over the last 24 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.
Maser is internationally recognised for his expansive repertoire of contemporary visual art, which 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.
Since the outset, Maser has continuously progressed his artistic style and practice, which is now firmly rooted in the gallery space, and moreover, in the realm of contemporary Irish Art. Having credited his origins in street art for the initial evolution of his style, his artistic practice today comprises of his unique typographic style combined with photorealistic elements, which convey an uplifting and socially conscious message to the viewer. The content of his work is inspirational and offers the viewer an opportunity to become fully immersed in an almost hypnotic state, through his use of contrasting colours and the use of repetitive patterns. With the underlying ideas that ‘We are all in this together’ woven throughout his work, Maser’s art unifies him with the viewer by conveying the love he has for his environment and the people that live in there.
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, Lazarides, the National Gallery of Ireland, the National Library of Ireland, Tandem Press and Graphic Print Studio. He also collaborated with the president Michael D Higgins on a series of bespoke limited edition prints also.
In addition to his artistic practice, in 2018, Maser established Atelier Maser an art studio and gallery space located in the heart of Dublin that is dedicated to emerging visual artists. The Gallery boasts an exciting programme of artist residencies and exhibitions developed to nurture talent and provide guidance for young artists to showcase their skills.
With an eye to the future, Maser hopes to encourage others with his work and continually evolve his work as he finds new confidence and a better understanding of his artistic practice.
