Black-Irish presents “Greetings from Harlem: The Past is Present”


“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 finds a continual flow of inspiration in the sights and materials our neighborhoods above 96th street Manhattan sets forth, 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 and bridging the gap between Harlem past and present.
