Despite Your Face
Over the past 5 years there has been an explosion of Street-art worldwide and Ireland has experienced a growing movement with several international names creating pieces in the city. As well as local artists developing into respected figures. This project hopes to shine a spot light on the movement and expose the viewer to the world that is happening under their very nose. Street Art or Graffiti is not the art of the disenfranchised community. It is not a about being poor, a minority, talented or clever. It is more a sense of opportunity and motivation. An expression outside the boundaries of societies accepted outlets. Too often it is high-lighted in press sound bites regarding its removal. It exists because it can. The artist is the viewer, often creating works that are never seen beyond a close circle of fellow artists and friends. And while it can be appreciated. Unlike many forms of expression, a mass or gallery audience is not its concern. It has existed forever and is beyond any fashion trend or movements. It will always be ‘despite your face’. This collection hopes to present Irish and International street art in the Dublin area. It is by no means a complete over-view (as the scene is far bigger than anyone can imagine). But instead is a snap shot of an underground existing in Irish society.
