Irish graffiti artist Maser to exhibit collection at Studio 3

Visiting Irish graffiti artist Maser will exhibit several new works at an opening and reception on Thursday, Nov. 29 at Studio 3 in Fayetteville.

Maser has been in Arkansas for six weeks leading up to the show, where he has been working on a mural in downtown Fort Smith, painting in his studio, and interacting with kids at Boardertown skate park.

Three of his paintings have been on display for the past month at Fayetteville Underground.

Maser first started painting graffiti in Ireland where he made a name for himself among the established graffiti scene with his innovative letter styles, characters and photo realism. Since then, he has treated the world as his canvas, leaving behind artwork in London, Austria, Germany, Copenhagen, Holland, Belgium, Prague, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and New York.

The show in Fayetteville will feature Maser’s paintings, screen prints, photography, and 3-dimensional installations.

“It’s really a combination of my work as a street artist, painter, and graphic designer,” Maser said. “It’s all very fresh, and new, and everyone’s welcome to come have a look. It will be quite casual.”

The reception will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday night, and will also feature hors d’oeuvres and Irish coffee. It is free to attend.
