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!!

ANewSpace present ‘Despite Your Face. This ambitious project consists of Irish and international Street Art from the Dublin Area. An opening party will take place on Culture Night, Friday the 24th of September from 6pm and the exhibition will continue until Sunday the 3rd of October at ANewSpace Gallery Boutique, 6 Chatham Street Dublin 2.

This collection hopes to present Irish and International street art in the Dublin area. It is by no means a complete overview (as the scene is far bigger then anyone can imagine) but instead is a snap shot of an underground existing in Irish society.

The exhibition is made up of a gallery show at Anewspace and special commission outdoor pieces. The first by ADW was completed on Sunday at Dame Lane, Dublin.
