PART 2 | Expanding the Irish StreetArt Collection

One more year in Dublin allowed me to enlarge my Street Art Collection with new murals from some of my favourite artists such as Fink & Solus , but also to discover new talents.

Dan Leo is an English multi-disciplinary artist based in Ireland. His large scale murals usually depict animals with an intense and colourful flair.  He has a signature style that makes it very easy to identify his fantastic works around the city.

El Viz is a Dublin based street artist specialising in  surreal pop art. Besides a fantastic Artist he is also a great Guide. He was in charge of the Street Art photo Walk last May. In September he will be hosting the Street Art photo Walk II. showing us the murals from the North side of the city.

 

Artur Bordalo (AKA Bordalo II) is a Portuguese Artist who creates masterpieces around the world with end-of-life material trying to increase sustainability, ecological and social awareness. In 2017 he gave away this incredible mural to Dublin City.  The squirrel took around five days to build, with the base assembled out of car parts, bike wheels, and plastic. Visit George’s Quay and make sure to look up to see this brilliant and unique piece of street art.

SUBSET, is a Multidisciplinary Artist Collective with diverse interests.  In the last years they’ve painted many murals around the city making marketing and branding super cool and decorative.

Decoy is an artist who worked abroad in New York and Germany, after graduating in 2013. He has worked with great artists such as MASER and SOLUS and this year he presented his first solo exhibition at the Tara Building. His  paintings are represented by simplistic and colourful juvenile forms in order to tell stories about recurring characters and their repetitive lives.
