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.

Dublin based street artist, Solus, has recieved notoriety, not only for his work in Ireland, but also in London, Bristol, Spain, New York and Amsterdam.

At the moment Solus is preparing to paint at ‘Upfest’ in Bristol this June. ‘I also plan to paint a lot in Dublin and where ever else I go… Im always trying to come up with new ideas’s and trying to improve my technique. I’m currently working on tonnes of new stuff, so you can expect to see lots of my work in the near future. Its exciting – im excited…’

Solus tells us his bio would go something like this: Enjoys painting, getting tattooed, old-time music, coffee, punk, South Korea, collecting art, hustling, loose lips sink ships, staring longingly into burning fires while weeping openly.

A Visual Feast – Book Launch 10 November 2010

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!!
