As early as 1995, under the moniker ‘Maser’, he began painting graffiti on the streets of Dublin, where he soon earned the respect of other graffiti artists in Ireland and throughout Europe for his unique abstracted style. After studying Visual Communication at Art School in his home city, he went on to establish himself as one of Ireland’s leading visual artist working in the urban environment.
In addition to his artistic practice, in 2018, Maser established Atelier Maser a creative studio and gallery space located in the heart of Dublin city, in Ireland. The space is dedicated to emerging visual artists and boasts an exciting programme of exhibitions. Alongside its unique exhibition programme, Atelier Maser also hosts regular wellness events, such as meditation and yoga – to promote wellbeing and learning within the Irish urban landscape.
On receiving the Guaranteed Irish Hero Award for Art, Maser said:
“It’s an honour. I hadn’t looked at my career so much in terms of those principles, [Jobs, Provenance and Community] but I now see how they all apply…Collaborating and employing other Irish companies to work on large projects with me, producing the majority of my work in Ireland and to be recognised internationally as an Irish Artist. And final engaging with the community is a key part of my work, especially the experiential pieces and large public works”
