🏆 Nomination: Best Of 2022
Gortin (United Kingdom)
Belfast (United Kingdom)

Belfast based street artist Emic has been active since 2012. In that time his work has evolved from paper paste-ups of deconstructed architecture into large-scale hand-painted murals. The artist combines human and natural forms to create stories. People and place are at the core of the artists intentions as he makes work to represent the unique identity of each location of his art. Emic is curator for hit the north street art festival, co-founded loft collective and is a member of vault artist studios. Throughout the artists career he has organised events and exhibitions that have added to the development of the street art scene in Belfast. A place that has become a hotbed for contemporary urban art which stands in stark contrast to it’s historical murals.
