Posts Tagged ‘Graf’

It took longer than I imagined it might to get down to Windmill Lane for this, the third in a series of posts looking at some of Dublin’s lesser known street art spots. I’ve been to Richmond Villas and Liberty Lane in the first two posts, and am on the look out for other gems. Strange though it may seem, given Windmill Lane’s historical connection to U2, that amongst the thousands of tags that cover the street, I couldn’t find one “Bono is a pox.”

Last week, I got a mysterious text from a good friend who said they had something to show me. The instructions were to meet on Grattan Bridge at 16:45, and that it should only take an hour or so. Intrigued, I showed up at the alotted time, and after a ten minute walk, we ended up in the carpark of the Tivoli Theatre, off Thomas Street. Adorning the walls are hundreds of pieces of the finest in Dublin Graffiti, some of which can be seen below. Full set can be found here.

Huge piece, this must have been over 20ft tall.

Anywhere is Paradise with you...

When I do good, no one remembers. When I do bad, no one forgets.

As I said, follow the link above for the full set, theres 34 pictures in total, all available for re-use under the Creative Commons License. But best if you go visit it for yourselves; The Tivoli Theatre is on Francis Street, just off Thomas Street. Just ask the nice man on the gate, you’ll be sorted.

Greed is the knife and the scars run deep...

 Any regular readers will know that we’ve been following the Maser/ Damien Dempsey project very closely; And on Sunday I came across my favourite piece from the project so far. Located between the Point and the Port Tunnel,  and spanning close to fifty feet are the words “Greed is the knife and the scars run deep,” lyrics taken from one of my favourite Damo songs, Colony. Youtube it, the song sends shudders up my spine every time. The raw anger in his voice when he sings the line “But if you’ve any kind of mind, you’ll see that all of humankind are the children of this earth, and your hate for them will chew you up and spit you out” will forever be one of my favourite lyrics. Amazing. Just… Amazing.

We’ll continue to keep you posted with pictures of the pieces as we find them; Rumour has it a new one has gone up at the Bernard Shaw. Anyone who spots new ones, please give us a shout on here.
