Limerick’s Gritty Shoote 061 13 April 2011

IrishStreetArt.com hooked up with Shoote 061, an artist who is really starting to make a mark on the Irish scene. The Limerick native told us the story of his journey to date.

‘I’ve always enjoyed art, reckon I came out of the womb holding a 6b pencil. Through out my younger years it was always a strong point. At about thirteen I started getting interested in street art, lured by the rattles and hiss of spray cans, I quickly got the bug and I’ve been infected ever since. When I first started painting there was no graff shop in Limerick, so acquiring paint meant ventures to the big smoke or make do with what I had. So household paints any kinda of paint really was used. Tagging was what I had a feel for at the beginning still today is what gets me buzzing the most. Eventually I had a l’il encounter with the ole 5-O l’il slap on the wrist really, they had my mother rang before I was even on the bus home. Thankfully this didn’t put too much of a stop to my plans thanks to fairly lenient parents who thought “Sure ya could have been doing a lot worse”. ‘

‘I was getting more serious about art around then and I decided to get a portfolio together and go for Art college. I was succesful, thankfully, and it has to be the best decision Ive made in my life. In college I started to run in to the people who got me interested in graff. Baqs and Gek” were the first tags I saw around Limerick. I’d never met them in person so when I did get the chance to meet them I was delighted!! Things really just unfolded from there… then ventures out at night, local jams, tagging like a mo fo, stickers, wheat paste and so on. The Limerick scene is going from strength to strength just after a great local jam on Paddy’s day organised by Cato and Mal went down really well.’

‘At the moment im focusing on how to bring my street art into my college work. I’m doing printmaking so really this discipline is fine tuned for street art really and there is endless possibilities with combining the two. Currently, me and two friends have started a collective producing work with the printing press, cans, markers, everything really and using the city as our gallery. There’s a visual infiltration occurring and hopefully we’ll get to show y’all some more work soon!!’

Shout out to everyone keeping the sráideanna alive!

More Graffiti from a Growing Limerick Scene 10 March 2010

In the last year or so, Limerick‘s Dock Road has been completely transformed. The long, drab, grey road had become a grave yard for petrol stations and the Celtic tiger did little in the way of architectural enhancement. However, thanks to a group of committed Limerick based graffiti artists, the city now has a new focal point in the most unlikely of places. From it’s modest beginning, Limerick‘s beautiful graffiti spot now is decorated with the letters of Ireland’s leading graffiti writers. Long may it last!

Just-Writing-My-Name14

Limerick played host to some of the top graffiti artists in the world at the weekend. Over 20 artists from across Europe braved the elements for the “Just Writing My Name” graffiti jam thanks to South Central LK and Montana Cans. Despite the early drizzle ‘Just Writing My Name‘ produced some great pieces at Limerick‘s city center skatepark. By all accounts it was an impressive event and was another coup this year for the Limerick‘s ever growing graffiti scene. The photos below were taken for IrishStreetArt.com by Vivido. Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for more photos from on the Dock Road, now one of Ireland’s best Graffiti spots.

Dex-Limerick

The midwest has had another drizzly grey summer. This hasn’t detered some of the country’s best writers like Dex and Rask from adding colour to the city’s Dock Road. Limerick‘s graffiti scene has exploded in the last year or so. Thanks to Orla for the photos. If you have photos from any graffiti jams taking place in your area we’d love to include them.

Marv and Joe are just two of many who will contribute to the blog in the coming year. If you would like to contribute to irishstreetart.com please drop us an email streetart@wecancreate.org

All Out Design Web Ad

The streets of Limerick are probably the most watched in the country. So a certain amount of respect has to be given to anyone who actually manages to throw up a piece anywhere public. Limerick’s two most prolific writers have to be Geko (ae) and Baqs. Below is a collection of graffiti pics I took over Christmas with my fisheye Lomography at the Wicked Chicken at Baker’s Place. Included is the work of Mr. Finbar and the All Out Design collective. Martin Jay (Marv) has promised to send in photos of the non-commissioned pieces taken on his cycle adventures around the city in the next few days so watch this space. Other hot spots to feature in the coming weeks include, Drogheda, Galway, Waterford and Killarney.
