Maser (b. 1981) is an Irish artist currently living and working in Dublin. In 1995, Alan Hester, under the moniker Maser, started painting graffiti on the streets of Dublin, where he soon earned the respect of other graffiti artists in Ireland and throughout Europe for his unique abstracted style. After studying Visual Communication Arts in Dublin, he went on to establish himself as one of Ireland’s leading visual artists working in the urban environment. His early work was strongly influenced by typography, letterforms, and sign painting, but his style has gradually transitioned towards graphic representation and geometric abstraction. His style is unassuming and emphasizes the simplicity of form while his bright color palette and energetic compositions excite and capture the eye. Maser has painted murals in many countries including Ireland, the United Kingdom, Austria, Germany, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Uganda, and the United States. In recent years, he began complimenting his large-scale murals and public artworks by creating prints, works on paper, and paintings on canvas. These works have been featured in exhibitions at Graphic Studio Gallery in Dublin, Lazarides Gallery in London, the Palais de Tokyo Gallery in Paris, and the National Gallery of Ireland.
