U ARE ALIVE ON GRANTHAM STREET DUBLIN 8
Different artwork but same message but “* u are not less” has been added or has replaced “* So Get Your Head Out Of Your Phone”. I have also noticed that this version is not signed.
A NEW GALLERY OF STREET ART NEAR THE TU CAMPUS- GRANGEGORMAN GALLERY
Aerosol Work for Dublin City Council and Grangegorman Development. This gallery is located at Upper Grangegorman.
Because of my programme of city visits I have not paid much attention to what is happening in Dublin late June so I came across this by accident.
URBAN EXPRESSION IN LIMERICK 2015 – THE PRE NEW-NORMAL YEARS
Examples of urban expression and street art photographed in Limerick during my 2015 visit to the city. In general I have been somewhat by street art in Limerick even though there can be one or two excellent examples … maybe I am visiting the wrong parts of the city.
FORGIVE YOUR ENEMIES – NOTHING ANNOYS THEM SO MUCH
According to Oscar Wilde you should “Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) was an Irish poet and playwright. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of the most popular playwrights in London in the early 1890s. He is best remembered for his epigrams and plays, his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, and the circumstances of his criminal conviction for gross indecency for consensual homosexual acts in “one of the first celebrity trials”, imprisonment, and early death from meningitis at age 46.
SAND SCULPTURES 2021 – DUBLIN CASTLE
It is funny how things work out. Today I went to a restaurant for lunch at 12:30 but I received a text message from the manager informing that, because of staff shortages, they could not open until 14:00.
As I had some time to spare I decided to visit Dublin Castle. I was aware that there had been an exhibition of sand sculptures in the upper courtyard but I had been advised that it had ended last Friday but much to my surprise I discovered that the sand sculptures were still intact.
Tomorrow I hope to visit the Botanic Gardens as the “Sculpture In Context” exhibition begins on Thursday but I hope to capture the artists in action as they install their sculpture.
