Street Art in Dublin

Upon my arrival to Ireland I was to spend one day in Dublin, waiting to taka a Paddy Wagon tour the next day. I met up with an artist and musician Will St Legar, how was so kind to show me around Dublin.

This is what I have studied: Dublin likes street art, artists carry a particular message to the viewers and make their art pieces meaningful. There are few graffitis that I liked:

By Conor Harrington. Stunning works with lots of splashes and drips. Look at the format of them. Incredible!

Artist started with making a mural for the skeleton of the animal on the first day, then painted muscles on the second and ended with top and final painting of the skin and hair. I wish I could see the process.Screen shot 2013-05-17 at 6.56.35 PM

Electric Station is also painted by James, you can see electrons running through the building in a shape of colorful rectangles.

Such large mural contains also a much smaller artwork of Heid. Art of the Heid, is often a part of one’s work. Making a mask of his face and placing it in reendow places around the town Heid never minds to have other paintings or graffitis over it.

Will also took me to few galleries and museums. Even though you get to museums in Dublin for free, you can’t however take pictures inside, so you get to visit them in person in order to see lovely Irish art.

I had a great day and thank to Will for making it that way.
