Artist: Aidan Butler
Artwork Title: 'A Sporting Chance?'
Artwork Location: Casino Marino, Cherrymount Cresent, Marino, Dublin 3.
Artwork Description: I decided to utilise the various gaming traditions evident within a 400 metre radius of the Traffic Box, namely GAA motifs (St. Vincent’s and Parnell Park), gambling (Card Games, Dice, Backgammon motifs) at the Marino Casino, and Golf at Clontarf Golf Club. I used a scrolling design with colour repetition and patterns easily adapted to either new box shape. I’ve also included a city skyline and the Casino itself.
Biography: I’m a self- taught professional artist from Dublin 9, working and living in the Dublin area for many years. I’ve completed State Commissions, and I’ve many works in Corporate and private collections. I’m also a designer of posters, book covers, and logos.
