Conor McCreedy

Conor Mccreedy was born in 1987 in Johannesburg, he grew up in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Kwa-Zulu Natal. Mccreedy is an internationally known contemporary artist. He is based in Zurich Switzerland.

Mccreedy's paintings are characterized equally by audacity and heritage. His works are powerful, dynamic and genuinely hypnotic, taking inspiration from life, the ocean and the energy around him and not least his South African heritage. Art historians have described the Mccreedyblue colour as having an “unspeakable effect” which manifests in the symbol of the ocean in his work.

Known for his richly textured, distinctively monochromatic blue coloured, large-scale splash paintings. Depicting abstract figures and sometimes people in monochromatic shades with expressive & detailed gestures. His trademark colour is know globally as Mccreedyblue. His choice was made in favour of his favourite colour. It is also the most profound and mysterious of colours. Blue was also researched by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in the eighteenth century.

Mccreedy has discovered an emotive power within the essential clarity of the materials that he uses to execute his paintings. Disciplined by single colour, focusing on material exploration, the creative gesture and the spiritual connection between the artist and his work. He seeks to transcend visionary barriers, leaving 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 an artifact symbolic of the artist’s conversation with the raw material that brought the painting into creation.


Conor Mccreedy于1987年出生于约翰内斯堡,他在约翰内斯堡,开普敦和Kwa-Zulu Natal长大。麦克雷迪是一位国际知名的当代艺术家。他的总部设在瑞士苏黎世。 麦克雷迪的绘画的特点是大胆和传统。他的作品强大,充满活力,真正催眠,从生活,海洋和周围的能量中汲取灵感,尤其是他的南非传统。艺术史学家将Mccreedyblue的颜色描述为具有“无法形容的效果”,这在他的作品中体现了海洋的象征。 以其丰富质感,独特的单色蓝色,大型飞溅画而闻名。用富有表现力和细致的手势描绘抽象人物,有时描绘单色色调的人物。他的商标颜色在全球范围内被称为Mccreedyblue。他的选择是为了支持他最喜欢的颜色。它也是最深刻和最神秘的颜色。约翰·沃尔夫冈·冯·歌德(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)在十八世纪也研究过蓝色。 Mccreedy在他用来执行他的绘画的材料的基本清晰度内发现了一种情感力量。以单一颜色训练,注重材料探索,创作姿态和艺术家与作品之间的精神联系。他试图超越有远见的障碍,使他的一些画作无题,旨在消除工作紧急存在之外的任何选择或联系。作品本身就成为一种记忆和一件神器,象征着艺术家与将绘画带入创作的原材料的对话。
