Ardú Street Art Initiative arrives with the intention of injecting colour, vibrancy, and life into Cork city and aims to unite the Leeside community through art, lifting its creative energy at a time when it needs it most. Ardú welcomes seven of Ireland’s most respected and renowned street artists: MASER, Shane O’Driscoll, Deirdre Breen, Peter Martin, James Earley, ACHES, and Garreth Joyce, to create works at key city centre locations, in response to a theme inspired by the 1920 Burning of Cork.

The Ardú team are delighted to announce their return to Cork city’s streets from today September 27th, until October 11th, with four more large scale murals to brighten up the city centre landscape. Commissioning artwork from home grown talent of the highest level is the main aim of Ardú. The 2021 edition will welcome artists: Friz, Shane O’Malley, Conor Harrington and Asbestos…

Maser’s Repeal is on its way back into Temple Bar this afternoon and this time it won’t be painted over because Local T4Y campaigner, Anne Phelan, has only gone and knitted it!

Hanging on ‘knitting needles’ fashioned from broom handles (carved by another Phibsborough local, master craftsman, Eamonn Murray) a group of local T4Y supporters gathered this morning outside Bang Bang Café for its ‘unveiling’ before being transported to its new home.

In fairness

The Charities Regulator has informed Project Arts Centre that the display of Maser’s ‘Repeal the 8th’ artwork is ‘political activity’ and that Project is therefore in breach of the Charities Act 2009 and not in line with Project’s ‘charitable purpose’.

Should the artwork not be removed, Project risks losing its charitable status. Project Arts Centre respects the authority of the Charities Regulator and will comply with their order to remove Maser’s artwork.

Fiona Slevin, Chair of Project Arts Centre said:

“We strive to sustain Project’s stated purpose and objectives, namely to remain Ireland’s leading centre for the presentation and development of contemporary art, and to work with artists across all art forms to make and present extraordinary works that inspire and provoke.

The artwork by Maser fits precisely with this remit. In presenting Maser’s work, we are facilitating the presentation of art by a highly regarded, award-winning street artist who has displayed artworks across Ireland, Europe and the United States.”

Maser’s artwork will be painted over by the Artistic Director of Project Arts Centre, Cian O’Brien at 11am at the centre on Monday.

All welcome.
