Rask of the TDA Klann tells IrishStreetArt.com the story of The Bridge Jam on the 15th birthday of Drogheda‘s international event. The photos below were all taken at this year’s momentus jam.

“I began thinking about running an event in Ireland after attending a jam in Scotland back in 1992 run by my mate eez. The concept was simple to make international artists aware there was a scene in Ireland and invite artists across so we could learn from and collaborate with them. Eventually this would all help to grow the then fledgling scene. I managed to secure the permission to paint the bridge in 1993 and that same year we painted what was simply a mural using spray paint to start things off.

This was well received so in 1994 with the help of my friend eez from Scotland I organized the first bridge event which saw only one side painted by mode 2 keen stylo and prime from London. There were several pieces painted on the other side by Scottish and Irish artists at the same time.

1995 was the first year we painted both sides of the bridge and this has pretty much been the model ever since with both walls getting painted at the same time as well as the side wall.

Over the past 15 years we have been honoured to have some of the top international artists grace our wall alongside some of the innovators from New York and a very large percentage of all the writers from Ireland making the bridge now the longest running annual graff event in the world. As a crew, we work hard each year to produce quality artwork and good vibes and we are very proud of what we have achieved as TDA Klann.

This august we celebrated the 15 year anniversary with a bold mural with a large 15 in the centre ,as I reflect on the last 15 years I would like to mention bich and zyr , 2 artists who graced the bridge over the years no longer with us roll on the next 15 and many years after that..”

Drogheda’s Piece Bridge Jam is the premiere event in Ireland’s graffiti Calender. “The Bridge events began in the summer of 1994 with a small gathering of 6 visiting writers from the UK who painted together with their Irish counterparts to produce the first of many murals on the now famous Bridge of Peace site. The event has now been running solidly every summer for each of the following years.” [View Original Source]

We hope to get our hands on some photos of the Bridge in the coming weeks but until then enjoy Mistervera’s video of last year’s Jam.
