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!

15 years of the Bridge Jam 8 September 2009

Rask of the TDA Klann tells IrishStreetArt.com the story of The Bridge Jam on the 15th birthday of Drogheda‘s international event. The photos below were all taken at this year’s momentus jam.

Bridge-Jam3

“I began thinking about running an event in Ireland after attending a jam in Scotland back in 1992 run by my mate eez. The concept was simple to make international artists aware there was a scene in Ireland and invite artists across so we could learn from and collaborate with them. Eventually this would all help to grow the then fledgling scene. I managed to secure the permission to paint the bridge in 1993 and that same year we painted what was simply a mural using spray paint to start things off.

Bridge-Jam6

This was well received so in 1994 with the help of my friend eez from Scotland I organized the first bridge event which saw only one side painted by mode 2 keen stylo and prime from London. There were several pieces painted on the other side by Scottish and Irish artists at the same time.

Bridge-Jam5

1995 was the first year we painted both sides of the bridge and this has pretty much been the model ever since with both walls getting painted at the same time as well as the side wall.

Bridge-Jam4

Over the past 15 years we have been honoured to have some of the top international artists grace our wall alongside some of the innovators from New York and a very large percentage of all the writers from Ireland making the bridge now the longest running annual graff event in the world. As a crew, we work hard each year to produce quality artwork and good vibes and we are very proud of what we have achieved as TDA Klann.

Bridge-Jam2

This august we celebrated the 15 year anniversary with a bold mural with a large 15 in the centre ,as I reflect on the last 15 years I would like to mention bich and zyr , 2 artists who graced the bridge over the years no longer with us roll on the next 15 and many years after that..”

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. Please email us on streetart@wecancreate.org
