I really enjoyed this year’s fringe show, it was so easy going and unpretentious. The location of the show was a back alley studio and indie gallery called RedSpace. We dressed it up with old furniture and put beer in coolers and let everyone feel at home.
I did a small intro and slagged off some of the art people brought and then our artists came down stairs and got to work, spraying, painting, sticking and stenciling on each piece. At the end we hung everything up and it all looked amazing. Thanks to everyone that came along and the talented artists that pimped the work.
Here’s some YouTube footage from the second night.
If you missed ‘Art Raid’ during the Dublin Fringe Festival in 2007, I’m bring it back for one night only. But this time it’s to raise money for a young graffiti artist called Konk that has been fined €13,500 by the courts. The artist is back in High court on 20th Oct and may face jail.
