Are You Content? Street Art

‘Are You Content?’ Eoin – “As with much of my works, ‘Are You Content?’ tackles the issues of depression, darkness, and the light at the end of the tunnel – That glimmer of hope, that everything is not really as bad as it seems!” The image and question are a mark to directly confront each individual viewer personally, to ask themselves, is everything really ok?...

I am human and I need to be loved. Street Art

Will St Leger. I can Imagine the bus journey from Clonmel Tipperary to Dublin and that it fit like a glove as an experience resembling the plight of his beloved heroes and their angst, The Smiths. Over the shit speakers on a coach, one of their laments on the loss of youth, travelling into a discovery of life and the acceptance his haircut would garner...

I...

Hold Fast. Street Art

ADW We’re not great with heights but the job distracts us and thankfully the ladders are big enough to get us up onto a rooftop which is right at the Luas Line on Aran street east, Northside of the city. It’s a fairly large wall that ADW has gratefully accepted for his ‘Hold Fast’ piece but getting eight to ten feet stencils up there was...

YOU ARE NOT ALONE Street Art

Solus The more I meet artists the more it appears that their work embodies everything that they say, this seems obvious to point out, but in the case of Solus it’s less about being the flavor and vocally telling all and sundry why he exists but more about letting the results say what has to be said.
