Born Finbarr Notte, Fin DAC is an Irish painter from Cork known for his depictions of Eurasian women. Over the years, Fin DAC has developed a unique style he calls Urban Aesthetics.
DAC, meaning Dragon Armoury Creative, was a name found by a friend From China which first became the name of Fin DAC’s web portfolio. He kept his pseudonym when he started street art and used a dragon logo as a form of signature.
Fascinated by Asian beauty, Notte’s work has no political message and only focuses on beauty and aesthetics. His depictions are women in ethnic clothes - they all wear a mysterious mask painted with bright colour splashes. As a self-taught and non-conformist artist, his influences range from dark graphic novels through to the works of Francis Bacon and Aubrey Beardsley.
Fin DAC has collaborated with brands like Armani, G-Star and Red Bull and has painted murals in Mexico, France, Spain, Cambodia, New Zealand and Tahiti.
