I went out and about last year during one of those culture nights. I just looked it up and the next one is in preparation for next month. See last year, I ended up at a small exhibition by John O’Reilly and I’ve have keeping up with his blog ever since. Check it out:

I love his work. Recognisably local, very urban, and done in a style that works really well for the subject matter. I think he has a bit of a graffiti background. Great stuff. I just wish I could afford to buy paintings!

I don’t know why so many people paint all the twee parts of Dublin. I can’t stand that stuff. Well I’m sure there are more that don’t paint that kind of stuff but it sure fills Merrion Square every week. Gimme some urban! Innit!? Oi oi.
