motto

Obedentia?

Felicitas?

Urbis?

Street stencil king ADW writes:

I thought i’d share a little video production I recently completed, inspired by the Dublin coat of arms and it’s Latin motto which translates to ‘happy is the city where its citizens obey

PUGNA!

From ADW (Dublin street artist):

“This was the image deemed unfit for human consumption at the Kings [Kings of Concrete at the Tall Ships festival in Dublin dockside] yesterday. It’s title ‘there’s no Justice, there is just us’ featured the lady of justice bent over a riot policeman’s knee getting spanked. The Guards took a serious exception to the piece of artwork and it was regrettably removed…Freedom of expression? Pussy Riots?”

 

After the picture was covered I wrote the name of the piece ‘There is no justice, there’s just us’…on THEIR power happy trip I was even ordered to remove the name of the piece??!!

The Tide is High But I’m Holding On.

By ADW who sez:

The original intention was to create a positive, hopeful piece of artwork depicting our capital city’s skyline set against a tiger-striped sunrise. The Tide Is High But I’m Holding On took over 120 hours to cut the six-layered stencil and is easily the most ambitious canvas I have painted to date.

 

The cover is part of a street art group show which opens in the Culture Box this evening (click here).
