Artist: Tara O'Brien
Artwork Title: ‘Dublin Soup’
Artwork Location: Donnybrook Road, Donnybrook, Dublin 4
Artwork Description: Dublin in a coastal county that contains some of the most beautiful coastline in the country. The sea can be accessed relatively easily and quickly regardless of how inland you are. This piece is a celebration of the relationship that Dublin has with the water. It is an aspect of living here that can be easily overlooked by those not living in directly seaside towns. The water provides a simple, innocent joy, experienced visually and physically, that helps to elevate our overall quality of life and it is worthy of celebration.
Biography: Tara is a freelance illustrator working in Dublin with a BA in Visual Communications. Recurring themes in her work are mental illness and body politics.
