Renowned Irish contemporary artist Maser, truly embodies the centric spirit of contemporary visual art in Ireland today. Having created artwork since 1995, over the last 25 years, Maser has earned much respect professionally and has generated a large and dedicated following both in Ireland and Internationally - through his seamlessly imaginative and unique graphic style.
Maser’s unique, artistic style draws upon numerous influences including optical and mid-century art, and his paintings are regularly complemented with bold colours, pattern and text. He is ambitious and is unafraid to experiment with any artistic format. Through his use of contrasting colours and flowing patterns, Maser’s work offers the viewer an opportunity to become fully immersed in an almost hypnotic state.
Maser boasts an impressive list of exhibitions and has created work for Lazarides (UK), National Gallery of Ireland(IE), National Library of Ireland(IE), Tandem Press(USA) and Graphic Print Studio(IE). He also collaborated with the president of Ireland Michael D Higgins and the National Print museum on a series of bespoke limited edition prints.
Most recently, Maser was invited to create an immersive large scale 3D installation for the prestigious Art on Paper art fair in New York, 2020. The installation was the centrepiece of the fair and gained much public exposure. In 2019, he was invited to represent Irish Culture on an International level as an ‘official’ trailblazer of Culture Night 2019.
In addition to his artistic practice, in 2018, Maser established Atelier Now 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 Now also hosts regular wellness events, such as meditation and yoga - to promote wellbeing and learning within the Irish urban landscape.
