Artist: Andrew McCarthy
Artwork Title: ‘Safe Home’
Artwork Location: The Oval – Palmerstown, Dublin
Artwork Description: I have tried to create this piece to be very area specific. Having been a past pupil(long time ago) in the primary school, I always remember the walks home in my old snorkal jacket and heavy schoolbag. Days which looking back were so much simpler. Still living in the area today I know the trac cansometimes get very heavy there being the last set of lights before the N4 opens up, so I have also tried to capture that in the overall meaning. The boy is walkng in the same direction as the trac and the ‘Slán Abhaile’ is basically trying to wish everyone on this journey the get home safe.
Biography: I am currently working as a Graphic Designer for Freeneys Graphics, my bread and butter is Vehicle/wall graphics which I love doing. I have designed many eets of vehicles which can be seen driving around Dublin on any given day. Having always drawn and painted from a very early age, it is something which I take great pleasure in. I am currently working on a selection of original works and hope to launch my own website by the end of the summer.
