This series of detailed work was originally hand drawn on location in the heart of the Liberties, Dublin 8. ‘The Liberties’ was an area so named for being ‘beyond the walls’ of Dublin city, originally founded by the Vikings. A place that is steeped in over 800 years of history, The Liberties today is a combination of layers of the past and present moulded together.
Music, art, breweries, distilleries, markets, ideas and characters. These and their stories make up the soul of this special place. I have always had a love for industrial architecture, developed from back when I studied set design. There's an amazing air of history in the old buildings around this area. I wanted to capture the story that's been built here, in the old walls and hidden places.
