There Is No Justice, There's Just Us - ADW

Here the prolific ADW brings us his latest time-lapse video; ‘There Is No Justice, There’s Just Us’. ADW recently spoke to Redmonk of Rabble.ie about his altercations with the Gardaí, when trying to paint the same stenciled piece, at the ‘Kings of Concrete‘ event in Dublin‘s Grand Canal Dock. Rabble is a non-profit, newspaper from Dublin city’s underground. It’s collectively and independently run by volunteers. Well worth a read. For more from ADW visit adwart.com

Geppetto - Phone Box Installation
Geppetto Phone Box Installation

Paul Mahon of Geppetto fame was commissioned as one of six artists to re-design a public phone-box in the capital in September as part of #engage ran by TANK Collective.

“…The boxes were once an integral part of the fabric of our streets buy now are invisible, neglected. We want to make them visible and vital once more. This project seeks to re-engage people with the telephone boxes…”

The Dublin based, Visual Artist from Kilkenny tells us ‘My concept was to engage the viewer/public back again with the boxes by making them actively search for that one point where the box would become invisible.’

The otherside of the same phone box.

The installation featuring, Ussher Library, was digitally printed onto vinyl wrapping material and installed across from Trinity College Dublin. ‘The technique used to create this illusion is called perspective anamorphosis, first used in the early Renaissance and more commonly seen on chalk drawn street art to make it look like there’s a hole in the ground.’

Post installation, Mahon was asked “When did you take the photo on the box when there was no cars”… He explained ‘There’s two answers to this: 1. The photo on the box doesn’t exist. It is Impossible to take the exact photo of what is on the box because there is a phonebox in the way… and 2. The photo you see printed on the box is a photoshopped comp of a few photos, which I took in between traffic.

ArtByEoin – From Belfast to Bantry! 2 August 2012

After Eoin’s first live painting event at Make A Move in Limerick on the 7th July the Lahinch based street artist went on a trip around Ireland leaving a trail of pieces in his wake.

Eoin told IrishStreetArt.com “Working alongside some super talented artists that have been in this game for a long time now was amazing! The stories from the beginnings of graffiti in Ireland to the opportunities that their crafts have brought them and the growing inclusion of street art and graffiti by communities around the country.”

In Bantry, following a visit by Phlegm, the town was all talk about street art. “I had the opportunity to try out something I’d never even thought of attempting before with my limited knowledge of spraying, a large scale photorealistic piece entitled ‘Hope’. The response to the work within the community was amazing and it has opened up a whole new area of my art that I have had in mind for a long time – I cant wait to see where it takes me now!”

Eoin is traveling around Australia and Hawaii over the winter to leave his mark behind, “I have one more giant piece that I am waiting for final approval for before I leave for the winter, fingers crossed it gets the green light, its ridiculously big!!”

Evan Roth

This weekend the Science Gallery at Trinity College, Dublin will play host to renowned art researcher, Evan Roth. The Propulsion Paintings Workshop will look at spray paint from a new perspective, exploring its potential uses as a propulsion device. Graffiti writers have long ‘hacked’ spray paint cans, altering their original purpose to leave their mark in public spaces and on public transport, creating art around the city.

In this two-day workshop with Hack The City, artist Evan Roth who founded the Graffiti Research Lab, you will hack spray paint in your own way. You will conceive, build, deploy and document new Propulsion Paintings – your own series of sculptures and video documentation based on modified cans of spray paint. You will be provided with a can of spray paint (along with some basic hardware) and will create kinetic sculptures designed to exist within the city.

Evan Roth is an artist and researcher based in Paris; some of his notable projects include L.A.S.E.R. Tag and LED Throwies (Graffiti Research Lab). Roth’s work is in the permanent collection of MoMA (NYC) and has been exhibited widely in the Americas, Europe and Asia and the front page of YouTube. Roth is co-founder of the Graffiti Research Lab and the Free Art & Technology Lab, a web based, open source research and development lab.

The workshops will take place on Saturday, June 16th from noon and Sunday, June 17, from 6.
