HIT THE NORTH 2018
I was delighted to be asked back to paint at HTN18. I returned to paint on North Street alongside some of the most internationally star studded line up to date.
From Colombia to Australia and Portadown to Poleglass, street artists and muralists came to the city on 20th & 21st September to bring their unique brand of colour, flair and creativity to radically transform the Northside of the city centre.

Hit the North Street Art Festival was established by Seedhead Arts and the Community Arts Partnership in 2013 as a response to vacant space along North Street and to transform the streets of the Cathedral Quarter. It has become one of the biggest street art festivals in Ireland and attracts artists from across Europe.
