Finn Harper’s traditional music-inspired artwork has become a hugely popular addition to many arts and music festivals in Ireland and internationally. His exceptional portrait work brings to life a wide range of renowned past and present-day Irish musicians – from Andy Irvine, to Christy Moore, to Micho Russell, to Matt Molloy, among others.
Originally from County Wexford, Finn is himself an accomplished musician. In 2015 during a short music residency in Florida, USA, Finn tried his hand at drawing portraits of Irish musicians that inspired and influenced him over the years, and he hasn’t looked back since!
Finn has garnered an enthusiastic following with his individual style of realistic high contrast pencil artwork. In 2017 alone, Finn has exhibited at Lorient Interceltique Festival in Brittany, Milwaukee Irish Festival in America, Doolin Folk Festival, Fleadh Cheoil in Ennis, and the Padraig O’Keefe Festival in Castleisland. Between 3rd October and 19th November you have an opportunity to see Finn’s work as part of Tradoodle Traditional Arts Festival for Young Audiences.
