Speaking from experience, Joe Caslin is someone who inevitably has a profound effect on anyone lucky enough to enter his orbit or encounter his work.
He’s at it again with this newly installed piece, Therapy. Catch it on Montague Lane before this unruly weather claims it.

Artist James Earley, in partnership with men’s health charity Movember, has created an animated piece of artwork in Coppinger Row titled ‘Leading the Good Fight; Transparent Conversations’.
Movember’s Neil Rooney writes:
The outdoor piece provides a direct and effective message – men’s mental health is at a crisis point and as a nation, we need to remove stigmas associated with mental health, encourage men to stay connected and to talk with someone they trust, especially when things get tough.

Ever wonder about the excellent street art to be seen painted on e.g. traffic light control boxes and other infrastructure, without the art, what would be grey lifeless street furniture?
I was walking towards town in Dublin and I came across Artist Cathal McCoy of Dublin Canvas, working hard on a wonderful new piece of street art outside of the old Meath Hospital at the corner of the Long Lane and Heytesbury Street.
Cathal’s concept of the art work is a pixelated map that when completed, will feature a red cross highlighting how the old Meath Hospital spread healthcare into Europe during the 1800’s. In the 19th century it was the site of the Dublin School of Medicine when two of its physicians, Robert Graves and William Stokes, brought bedside teaching to the English-speaking world.
Dublin Canvas is an excellent initiate, “a community art project intended to bring flashes of colour and creativity to everyday objects in the greater County Dublin area. Less grey, more play. The project takes previously unused public space and transforms it into canvases to help brighten up each area. Making Dublin a more beautiful place to live, work and visit.”
Long may it continue.
