Wildlife On The Line


Aviva Stadium, Dublin 4.

One of Ireland’s largest street art projects has been completed.

Spanning 160.4 metres, the urban wildlife mural is part of a partnership between Iarnród Éireann and Aviva Stadium, and supported by Dublin City Council.

Barry Kenny writes:

It runs along the railway lines running under the West Stand of the Aviva Stadium and along the tunnel up to Lansdowne Road Level Crossing.

Wall 1 depicts the image of an urban fox, which are regularly spotted within the areas of city centre stations and has been created by artist and illustrator Dan Leo.

The image of an Urban Hawk created by Artists for All City Records, is in place on Wall 2 situated at the North end of Tunnel.

The central area displays a work collaboration between The Walls Project and Artists Holly Pereira, Omin and Decoy. The urban wildlife theme continues, depicting a black cat as it moves along the tunnel through, bright flowers, shapes and graphics.

A sense of ‘page flick’ movement can be seen by those passing on DART, Commuter and Rosslare Intercity services.

In fairness.

    am I the only one who is mildly irritated by the fact that their lovely mint background falls short of the ceiling line?

    Brightens up a dark spot, but it’s not exactly very exciting as an artwork IMHO. Each to their own though
