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..”

Maser loves U

Irishstreetart.com has been a fan of Maser‘s work for the past few years from his pieces at Lecky Picky to his regular installments at the Bernard Shaw. Below is an exclusive collection of photos that Maser tell’s us ‘hasn’t hit the net’ before. For more updates on his latest projects blog here »

Maser first started painting graffiti in Ireland in 1995 and very quickly created quite an impression on the established scene with his innovative letter styles, characters and photo realism.

Its fair to see he is the most well rounded graffiti artist at work in ireland today with a capacity to do everything from quickly executed simple pieces to full colour work , characters and full scale cooperative projects with themed backgrounds and concepts. Since 1995 he’s treated the world as his canvas leaving behind some of his artwork in London, Germany, Copenhagen, Holland, Belgium, Spain and Sweden as well as making a visit to New York the birth place of his beloved artform. Maser has also painted extensively throughout Ireland.

In between he studied fine art and then qualified with a distinction in Design Communication. Upon graduation Maser was awarded Membership of the International Society of Typographic Designers. Using what he learned in college and adapting it to meet his needs has given Maser‘s work a unique edge fusing graffiti and grapic design.

Maser is a member of the TDA Klann and the Foes Crew. The TDA Klann, formed in 1991 are Ireland’s premier graffiti crew. Their focus on creating unique writing styles has earned them international acclaim and respect. Since 1993, they’ve been running Ireland’s first and only annual graffiti festival and front a movement for emerging artists encouraging and assisiting up and coming artists and promoting graffiti in a positive light.

Maser endeavours to highlight the positive aspects of graffiti, how it can enrich the cityscape and provide an outlet for young artists. His style is reflective of this, being both uplifting and socially conscious and harmonious with the surfaces he uses. His work carries a message , from the simple Maser loves you to the eye love my city which is maser proclaiming to everyone his love for his city, his environment and the people that live there.

Maser is more than a graffiti artist working in Dublin, his work reflects the feeling and emotions of the city and he uses the streets to tell his story, your story…

He is currently working on a book documenting the relationship between Graffiti and social groups in Dublin City.
