Your weight in gold. Street Art

D M C

With his tall disposition and glorious ginger beard, striking a northern pose you might have spotted DMC’s work in Dublin before when he turned up first at the For The Love Of Mill street expo in 2009, He’s one of the heads behind the WhiteWash shows in Portadown and his trade mark ‘Girl’ pieces pop up more north of the border [he’s from Lurgan] than down south here, but that’s changing as he intends to spend more time in Dublin as 2013 progresses.

Thankfully for us he’s thrown up one of his classic looking ladies for this years festival, with an addition of a gold skull as a gift on the prime location of the doorways next to Costume, Drury street.

Strikingly the Girls he depicts all have a touch of sadness to them, they rain to the ground like the colours wash away all the parts unwanted and for FirstFortnight this has a special significance to what his work relays and how it ties in with our grand message.
