Rathmines Road, Dublin 6
Dublin City Council
The artwork is a loose portrait of Francis Sheehy Skeffington, who was a well-known Irish writer and activist and lived at Grosvenor Place in Rathmines during the early 1900s. The portrait is done in a modern, graphic style to suit the forward-thinking and ahead of his time personality and views of Sheehy Skeffington: he was a feminist, a pacifist, a suffragist and campaigned for women's rights.
I am a graphic designer from Dublin. I have lived in Dublin all my life and I love learning about the history of Dublin, how it has evolved, as well as all the fascinating stories of its people that are in danger of being lost if we don't celebrate them! Wherever possible I like to reference Dublin in my work.
