Biography

Conor Mccreedy (b. 1987, South Africa) British- South African Artist. known for his richly textured, distinctively Monochromatic blue coloured, large-scale splash paintings. His trademark color is know globally as Mccreedyblue. Mccreedy has discovered an emotive power within the essential clarity of the materials that he uses to execute his paintings. Disciplined by single colors, focusing on material exploration, the creative gesture and the spiritual connection between the artist and his work. Mccreedy seeks to transcend visionary barriers. He leaves some of his paintings untitled, with the intention of removing any choice or connection beyond the work’s urgent existence. The work itself becomes a memory and a artifact symbolic of the artist’s conversation with the raw material that brought the painting into creation. Mccreedy’s influences range from artists such as Yves Klein and Pablo Picasso to the monumental colourists such as Willem de Kooning and Gerhard Richter. The natural inspirations come from his Southern African heritage, the consistent blue ocean, rich red sunsets and emerald green safari surroundings.
