A Visual Feast; Irish Street Art is a photographic collection of Ireland’s stencils, paste-ups, installations, murals and portraits and features artist profiles …and comments throughout.

Jonathan Lynn of ANewSpace said “Its easy to make a book about international street art. TRESPASS: A History Of Uncommissioned Public Art by Wooster Collective is a great book but the scene in the US seems desperate to be gentrified and accepted. I feel that book is aimed at pushing street art away from its core of people just doing or making something and into the world of curators. It will allow the work of Jeffrey Deitch previously of Deitch Projects in New York and currently the director of the LA Museum of Contempory Art to promote large scale street art shows.

But is that what the world needs. Already guys with spray cans can be found at every music festival and church fair (soon). As soon as a book or gallery show happens street art seems to haved moved and changed.

Ideally I hope the A Visual Feast book will have more in common with Stencil Graffiti by Tristan Manco. One of the first books on stencils that seemed to sow the seeds for so many artists. (I always thank Jenny Fox for giving it to me.) Only time will tell.”

The Book, by Rua Meegan & Lauren Teeling, will be in stores mid November 2010. A Visual Feast‘s book launch will take place Thursday Nov 18th from 7pm in The Bernard Shaw in Dublin.

There will be drinks promotions and DJ’s as well as live painting by some of Ireland’s best street artists including ADW, Will St Leger, Fink, Xpir, Asbestos, Littleman and Solus. All Welcome!!

Fink is a Dublin based street artist who draws influence from artists such as Warhol, Dali, Haring, Who, Maclaim, Lichtenstein. He merges his creations with an affinity for comics, graffiti culture, street art and modern day popular culture. Not only is the diverse fink the author of some bold graffiti pieces on wall, he is also responsible for a verity of beautiful stencil and canvas based street art.

Watch Fink as he creates his latest vibrant piece.

Fink studied Visual Communication in England for which he received an Honours Degree with Distinction. He has exhibited and painted in both England and Ireland. He also holds a Certificate in Art, Graphics and Printmaking and loves to Fish!

For him, “it’s all about the relationship between a graphic composition and how it affects the onlooker. I aim to make that relationship highly stimulating and thought provoking : I Fink therefore I am”.
