Street artist and graphic designer Giant Sigh (Gareth Joyce) unveiled a mural calling for a YES vote in the forthcoming referendum, commissioned by The Irish Council for Civil Liberties [ICCL].
Giant Sigh’s work draws on images of feminist workers’ icon Rosie the Riveter and Yeats’ and Lady Gregory’s cultural representation of Ireland Cathleen Ní Houlihán “to highlight the importance of women’s rights and equality in today’s Ireland”.
The mural unveiling comes as ICCL released a statement this morning on the increased importance of political and artistic freedom of expression in referendum contexts.
