Twelve Doors by Maser & Damien Dempsey 25 January 2010

1 comment so far

The final Twelve Doors instalation of 2009 ‘Love Yourself Today’ came from Dubliners, Maser and Damien Dempsey and is described as ‘for the people of Dublin, about Dublin, in Dublin.’

‘The majority of street art only addresses the ‘headline issues’, depicting the negative aspects about our society and governments. I want to address some of these issues but communicate them in a positive manner.’ This piece is the 2nd of 24 that will be painted in Dublin over the next few months. All pieces will be on-line in the New Year on Damien Dempsey’s site. The visual inspiration for this project comes from the old hand painted sign writing in Dublin City, the sort you can still see on sides of pubs, chemists, hardware stores etc.

On “Progress” ADW told twlevedoors.com, ‘My initial idea was to turn the door into something that looked out of place in the City Centre. Our Minister for Health, Mary Harney TD dressed in peasant garb looking very bored reflecting our current economic climate. ‘Progress’ written in the cobweb (a favoured political word) is to contrast the whole theme.’

“3 Little Punk Pigs”

fink on his ’3 Little Punk Pigs’: “Reminiscent of the classic fairytale 3 little pigs and considering the recent pork ban and the ongoing global takeover of swine flu i decided to give the pig a trendier image & makeover to help boost it’s popularity. All hail the Punk Pig !”

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. As fink says himself “it’s all about the relationship between a graphic composition & how it affects the onlooker. I aim to make that relationship highly stimulating and thought provoking : i Fink therefore i am”

Since we last brought you an update on the twelvedoors.com project Konk has been busy, not only with his exhibition downstairs at All City Records but also this month’s installation. The Dublin based writer states the reasoning to the vibrant color scheme is “to get in your fave weather you like it or not!” The 22 year old Sean Bryan, who has of late been ‘keeping it legal’, is working on a book of Irish graffiti, something everyone here at irishstreetart.com are looking froward to.

12doors-logo

Inspired by the artivism of the Irish Street Art community, NOONE CASEY on Dame street, Dublin have come up with a novel idea ‘facing into the relentless negativity of recessionary depression’. They have donated their office door to twelvedoors.com to use, abuse, deface and delight over the next twelve months.

Twelve artists each control the door for 1 month. The Door Art is transient; each artist paints over the previous months work. “The work of twelvedoors.com will be complete when we conclude the twelfth artist in the twelfth month.”

Below is the April installment of ‘Marilyn’ by John Bowes

"Marilyn" by John Bowes - 12Doors, Dame Street

“Marilyn embodies sophistication, traditional glamour and true beauty, which has defined her years in celebrity culture. She turns heads, and reminds people of those golden days that now seem long gone. She was perfect for catching the public’s attention, and fits straight into the mould of my theme. Hopefully, she’ll add a touch of joy and glamour to a city depressed with economics.” John Bowes
