Inspired by the artivism of the Irish Street Art community, NOONE CASEY on Dame street, Dublin have come up with a novel idea ‘facing into the relentless negativity of recessionary depression’. They have donated their office door to twelvedoors.com to use, abuse, deface and delight over the next twelve months.

Twelve artists each control the door for 1 month. The Door Art is transient; each artist paints over the previous months work. “The work of twelvedoors.com will be complete when we conclude the twelfth artist in the twelfth month.”

Below is the April installment of ‘Marilyn’ by John Bowes

"Marilyn" by John Bowes - 12Doors, Dame Street

“Marilyn embodies sophistication, traditional glamour and true beauty, which has defined her years in celebrity culture. She turns heads, and reminds people of those golden days that now seem long gone. She was perfect for catching the public’s attention, and fits straight into the mould of my theme. Hopefully, she’ll add a touch of joy and glamour to a city depressed with economics.” John Bowes
