"Greetings from Harlem: The Past is Present" is a series by Shaun O’Rourke comprised of fine art, mixed media, and limited edition, signed and numbered prints. The show pays tribute to an ever-evolving Harlem through its temporary textures, graffiti, architecture and people. We honor the past, while standing in the present.
As 20+ year Harlem artists and as business owners, Black-Irish has found a continual flow of inspiration in the sights and materials found in Harlem , enriching Black-Irish’s ongoing archive of fine art and limited edition prints.
Black-Irish reimagines modern Harlem scenes and details through the lens of vintage print aesthetics (including lithograph, silkscreen, chromolith, rotogravure, hand tints, etc.), offering fresh perspectives & bridging the gap between Harlem past and present.
