Morgan - First Fortnight 2013

This year’s First Fortnight Festival is taking place from the 2nd to 12th of January. The ‘First Fortnight‘ 2013 line up includes Friz, Solus, Morgan DMC, Will Saint Leger and ADW. Since its inception in 2009, First Fortnight’s key aim has been to challenge mental health stigma and prejudice through the creative arts. A charity-based organisation, First Fortnight is run entirely by seven volunteers.

‘We believe the arts allow us to create a space where people can talk about mental health issues in a very non-scripted manner and help to change people’s perceptions about an issue that effects us all.

There Is No Justice, There's Just Us - ADW

Here the prolific ADW brings us his latest time-lapse video; ‘There Is No Justice, There’s Just Us’. ADW recently spoke to Redmonk of Rabble.ie about his altercations with the Gardaí, when trying to paint the same stenciled piece, at the ‘Kings of Concrete‘ event in Dublin‘s Grand Canal Dock. Rabble is a non-profit, newspaper from Dublin city’s underground. It’s collectively and independently run by volunteers. Well worth a read. For more from ADW visit adwart.com

Building up quite a reputation for his political commentary, ADW brings us a stencil of the two Brians. We think it’s a great reflection of just how the public sees our so called leaders these days! Taken in Lower Mountpleasant Ave in Rathmines, Dublin.

This collection hopes to present Irish and International street art in the Dublin area. It is by no means a complete overview (as the scene is far bigger then anyone can imagine) but instead is a snap shot of an underground existing in Irish society.

The exhibition is made up of a gallery show at Anewspace and special commission outdoor pieces. The first by ADW was completed on Sunday at Dame Lane, Dublin.

A successful ADW Exhibition 28 April 2010

By all accounts ‘Stensual‘ the ADW exhibition that took place in The Back Loft, Dublin was a complete success. Here are a few photos of the opening night taken by Emma Casey.

According to Donna Kiernan from La Catedral Studios ‘The exhibition was a huge success especially considering it was his first solo show. There were loads of people there for the opening on Thursday (15th)and a lot of interest from the press. ADW got reviews all over the place – MetroHerald, Irish Independent and The Daily Mail. He ended up selling about half of the work on the night.’

‘The work was classically slick, smart and hilarious. My personal favourites were “Don’t Pass Go” with the monopoly man being dragged away by the gardai and Mary Harney ala Charlotte’s Web dreaming about Colonel Sanders which is stencil directly on our wall and we now get to keep here forever.’
