Biography: I am a street artist, graphic designer and teacher based in Dublin. I graduated from Dublin Institute of Technology in 2012 with a degree in Fine Art, and have been working as a street artist and art teacher since then. My artwork combines intricate stencilling and freehand spray painting. I've painted at many events and festivals such as Waterford Walls, First Fortnight festival, The Beatyard, for campaigns such as Walls of Equality (Marriage Equality Referendum), and for companies such as RTE.
