Artist: Clare Blackwell

Artwork Title: 'The Drimnagh Swim'

Artwork Location: Goldenbridge Luas stop, Davitt Road (Marble Arch pub) 

 

Artwork Description: I have designed this artwork specific to the above listed box. I wish to reflect how the canal lock

around the corner from my home in Drimnagh comes to life in summer-time. Young people gather together to dive and watch the goings on during warm summer evenings on the Grand Canal. It is a time honoured tradition for local kids who make use of the waterway in a way that was never intended.

 

Biography: I am an Irish artist and illustrator from Limerick, living in Drimnagh, Dublin 12. I work as a tutor of art and design in further education. My personal creative interests include painting, drawing and digital illustration, my style is inspired by the use of complimentary colours and the world and people around me.
