A Visual Feast – Book Launch 10 November 2010

A Visual Feast; Irish Street Art is a photographic collection of Ireland’s stencils, paste-ups, installations, murals and portraits and features artist profiles …and comments throughout.

Jonathan Lynn of ANewSpace said “Its easy to make a book about international street art. TRESPASS: A History Of Uncommissioned Public Art by Wooster Collective is a great book but the scene in the US seems desperate to be gentrified and accepted. I feel that book is aimed at pushing street art away from its core of people just doing or making something and into the world of curators. It will allow the work of Jeffrey Deitch previously of Deitch Projects in New York and currently the director of the LA Museum of Contempory Art to promote large scale street art shows.

But is that what the world needs. Already guys with spray cans can be found at every music festival and church fair (soon). As soon as a book or gallery show happens street art seems to haved moved and changed.

Ideally I hope the A Visual Feast book will have more in common with Stencil Graffiti by Tristan Manco. One of the first books on stencils that seemed to sow the seeds for so many artists. (I always thank Jenny Fox for giving it to me.) Only time will tell.”

The Book, by Rua Meegan & Lauren Teeling, will be in stores mid November 2010. A Visual Feast‘s book launch will take place Thursday Nov 18th from 7pm in The Bernard Shaw in Dublin.

There will be drinks promotions and DJ’s as well as live painting by some of Ireland’s best street artists including ADW, Will St Leger, Fink, Xpir, Asbestos, Littleman and Solus. All Welcome!!

Bluetooth Fairy

The Dublin based Artivist, Will St. Ledger, in his blog, tells us that he is in the process of finalising dates for his latest show ‘Bluetooth Fairy’. Once again St. Ledger pushs the boundries with this virtual exhibition ‘where the audience will receive my new work via Bluetooth to their mobile phones and then Bluetooth it to printers.’ The art on show will remain secret until the night of launch but if his portfolio to date is anything to go by this event should not be missed!

Dublin’s Fringe festival, taking place from the 5th to the 20th of September, will play host to Irish street artist Asbestos and Will St Leger. Asbestos has created 200 customised screenprints for Absolute Originals, an exhibition of 16 Irish pieces. The exhibition takes place at the Absolut Fringe Factory at Smock Alley Theatre throughout the festival. Check out the video below.

This year the organisers have also included a Street Art Club led by Will St Leger.

From the fringefest.comWill St Leger is going to take you on a street art super journey covering spray painting to stencils to paste ups. You could think of it as a series of dates, but that might make the whole thing a little uncomfortable. What’s not uncomfortable is becoming the next Banksy while getting to street artify a whole wall at the Bernard Shaw. There will be paint and glue everywhere. But not unless you snap up one of only 20 places for this super cool, super hot, totally unsupercilious club.”

This club includes a field trip to Mind The Gap on Thu 17th at 7.30pm. Its a great chance to work with Ireland’s premiere ‘Artivist’ so make sure if you’re interested to get your hands on tickets as soon as you can.

This weekend sees a feast of street art at The Bernard Shaw. Friday night kicks off at 7 sharp with the Achieving Art Exhibition 2009 in Aid of Saplings (a school for children with Autism). The silent auction will host work from both Irish and International street/graffiti artists including Sums, Asbestos, Jor, Rask, Fink and Maser to name but a few.

Achieving-Art-Exhibition-2009

Saturday night, July 18th, Will St Ledger presents the second Antics Rogue Show. From Toejam: “The brain child of local Dail climbing art hooligan Will St Leger, the first installment took place as part of last year’s Fringe Festival. Its a simple idea: You turn up with your old painting/picture etc, hand it in, the artists are called in, they are given a piece at random, they go to work on it live with spray, stencil, marker, blood or whatever their favourite medium is and an hour later you have a one of a kind updated piece of art. At this point the hand goes out looking for donations and you pay what you think it’s worth with all money going to the artists themselves.

Artists confirmed for the event are Asbestos, Adam Crane, ADW, Shane, Canvaz, Will himself, Morgan and more to be confirmed.

The event starts at 6:30pm and we reccomend you get there by 6pm to submit your picture for vandalism and get your ticket.”

Will St Leger – Irish stencil artivist! 20 May 2009

Will St Ledger joined the MART team to bring interactive and visual feast to the eyes of clubbers. He tells us “Electro stenciling is a performance based art using a canvas covered in light sensitive paint and a strobe light. Very effective in the dark, but only lasts half an hour.” This clip is taken from POGO at The Twisted Pepper in Dublin.

The Dublin based Artist is building up quite a reputation as he continually creates iconic pieces addressing Ireland’s new age. From his iconic ‘Sinking Ship’ to the brutal ‘Awake with stitched Heart’ Will St Ledger is building a reputation as being one of the country’s leading artisitic commentators on the state our nation finds itself in.
