Artist's Statement

Conor Mccreedy creates richly textured monochromatic abstract splash and figurative paintings in his trademarked colour Mccreedyblue. Inspiration comes from his experiences, growing up in Southern Africa, a landscape blessed with brilliant cobalt skies that meet the powerful Indian and Atlantic oceans, filled with endless shades of blue. Art historians have described the Mccreedyblue colour as having an "unspeakable effect" discovering a distinctive emotive power and clarity in the materials he uses, capturing the spiritual connection between the artist and his creation.

 

Biography

Conor Mccreedy is a well known international contemporary artist based in Zurich. His highly acclaimed recent work is based on his own unique, one-of-a-kind pigment which is known as “Mccreedy-Blue.” Mccreedy has had sold out solo exhibitions around the world from New York to Johannesburg, Hong Kong and Zurich. Art historians have described the “Mccreedy-Blue” colour as having an “unspeakable effect” known as The Blue Renaissance which manifests in the symbol of the ocean in his work. His paintings reflect the blue ocean, mysteriously moved by the stars. He sold the record number of paintings for any single artist at the Kunst14 Zurich art fair. In late 2014, Bloomberg Markets TV conducted an interview and described Mccreedy as the next luxury brand.
