Roscommon-born artist Joe Caslin’s massive 40 ft mural of a hooded youth (top) is part of a project called Our Nation’s Sons which began at the weekend in Edinburgh with more popping in the coming days.
Sez Joe, a student at Edinburgh College of Art:
“These drawings of young men will be used as a tool to re-establish young men as legitimate participants within today’s society by giving them a voice and a tangible presence within our city. Community cohesion and participation is fundamental to the project.”
He must take this to Ireland.
