One year ago, I created a project called Bank of Secrets which culminated with painting a large mural, ‘Troubles Fade Out in the Open’ on Project Arts Centre – During the process a film crew lead by filmmaker, Max Damm documented the planning, the work and my own personal struggles. Here is the trailer for Problem Solver:

Walls of Equality
As a big fan of both artists, I took a detour on my way out of the city to take some pictures of the piece. Quite clearly, it’s beautiful, engaging and it only takes two words to say the right thing “YES EQUALITY”
However, while taking these pictures, I was reminded why we are doing this; why we’re showing #DublinInLove. Minding my own business, an ‘interesting ‘ character looked at me and said “ni**er poof”.
I’m not quite sure why they felt the need to but we need to stomp it out. It’s water off a ducks back and we need to make sure we’re saying yes to love and yes to equality come May 22 ❤️
I recently submitted this one off piece called, “Inside We’re Spooning’ for an exhibit organised by No Fixed Abode in support of Marriage Equality at The Copper House Gallery.
The idea for the piece comes from our need to cuddle and spoon eachother, regardlesss of gender or orientation. The chemical structure at the top of the spoons is Oxytocin, which is a powerful hormone that is released when we hug or kiss a loved one.

In pre-emptive crackdown against artists, British Transport Police said thet are part of, “a live and ongoing criminal investigation into linked incidents of criminal damage between January 2007 and July 2012” – What the Police failed to mention is that all of the artists arrested haven’t painted illegally for 15 years. One of the artists in fact has NEVER painted illegally, despite having worked with one of the Games’s major sponsors Adidas. Read the full story here
