Konk has been writing graffiti for 6 years. The Dublin based artist describes his style as ‘bright modern contempory’ and has a love for ‘big drippy tags, throw ups and all aspects of graffiti’. Konk has been working with Dublin city youth service, teaching classes privately to both kids and adults.

In 2008 he was arrested for €14,000 worth of damage and received a 2 year suspended prison sentence in the high court including 240 hours community service and a €5000 fine. Funds were raised to pay off this fine through the successful ‘Free Konk’ art raid.

Having completed his stint on probation Konk is now concentrating on getting a website together and organising a book of irish graffiti and his work……

Taaffees Galway Art BaqsR Dust

Baqs R and Dust have given one of Galway‘s Shop Street’s landmark premise a facelift. Since its closure, Taaffe’s, once an iconic shop had been painted a dull grey. Other than the odd drink fueled tag that popped up, the disused store had become a nasty focal point. The newly painted tribute to Taaffe’s is now the perfect backdrop for the street performances that will no doubt be enjoyed by the hordes of people who flock to Galway this summer.

Fink is a Dublin based street artist who draws influence from artists such as Warhol, Dali, Haring, Who, Maclaim, Lichtenstein. He merges his creations with an affinity for comics, graffiti culture, street art and modern day popular culture. Not only is the diverse fink the author of some bold graffiti pieces on wall, he is also responsible for a verity of beautiful stencil and canvas based street art.

Watch Fink as he creates his latest vibrant piece.

Fink studied Visual Communication in England for which he received an Honours Degree with Distinction. He has exhibited and painted in both England and Ireland. He also holds a Certificate in Art, Graphics and Printmaking and loves to Fish!

For him, “it’s all about the relationship between a graphic composition and how it affects the onlooker. I aim to make that relationship highly stimulating and thought provoking : I Fink therefore I am”.

Below is just a pick of Fink‘s work to date, for more visit Fink on flickr.

More Graffiti from a Growing Limerick Scene 10 March 2010

In the last year or so, Limerick‘s Dock Road has been completely transformed. The long, drab, grey road had become a grave yard for petrol stations and the Celtic tiger did little in the way of architectural enhancement. However, thanks to a group of committed Limerick based graffiti artists, the city now has a new focal point in the most unlikely of places. From it’s modest beginning, Limerick‘s beautiful graffiti spot now is decorated with the letters of Ireland’s leading graffiti writers. Long may it last!
