Edgy Almaty Art

21 May

Almaty-based artist Justin Mulrooney, who is originally from Ireland, has launched a new website containing two collections of his provocative artwork.

Riverbank

He works in the medium of photograms – photographic images made without using a camera. The image is made by putting an object between a source of light  and paper that is sensitive to light.

O'Connell

Images from the  first collection – Vertebrae – caused a stir among Almaty’s art cognoscenti when exhibited at the Tengri Umai gallery in 2009. The other collection –Maps -is based on his travels around the world.
