Contact Information

Kelsey Montague is an artist from Colorado who travels the world painting murals and interactive art. She painted these wings in October 2019 as part of her '#whatliftsyou' series. This is the second set of wings she completed on the wall beside O'Connell's pub. Initially a pair of monochrome wings which she painted in July 2017 adorned the wall beside O'Connell's pub. She says "My murals specifically invite people into a piece and then invite people to share their experience online. I believe that art should not be separated from the human experience. Instead the human experience should have a hand in creating the art itself." Kelsey studied art in Florence and graduated from Richmond University in London with a degree in Art, Design & Media. She spent 4 years in NYC developing her pen & ink style. On her website she says of her style "People have asked me where the designs come from in my illustrations. I could give some long, mystical answer, but the truth is… I honestly don’t know. I just know that when I start drawing, I completely lose myself in the flow of images. I hope you enjoy these designs as much as I enjoyed creating them!"
