In Dublins fair city recently when I spotted these what I can only assume where electrical boxes [i assumed…] … It may be street-land-scaping, it may be considered art – it may also be considered a little prettier than a grey boring box that just got in the way. I say more of this sort of thing… please.
I know grafitti is grafitti and if it causes upset, businesses to lose money – then it is scandalous and vandalous… but like all things there are exceptions to every rule… ?
This Irish Times piece does explain indepth so much and that
one person’s “criminal damage” is another’s “masterpiece”
That said – these were once just a grey box, that simply got in the way… I delved deeper… This is ART!!
It is also the brainchild of TASCQ [traders in the Area Supporting the Cultural Quater Ltd] – basically – the businesses of the Temple Bar area. It wasn’t just one artist – it was a competition… it was called invoke street art.
If you do like what you see on your streets – and equally if you don’t – do let someone know. The businesses [i’m guessing here..] I reckon throw a good few euros into the TASCQ scheme – they’re are making an effort, a good one – and it deserves applause… Well done all.
