And that's a wrap! We are celebrating finishing our wall - The Wave - at #KinlayHouseCork - The artist, Fiona Geary from Ballinadee in West Cork, is a graduate of Limerick School of Art and Design. She spent the last few years working as a visual artist, sculptor and scenic painter on television, movie and theme park sets in Toronto, Belfast and Dubai. Fiona moved back to Cork a year ago and made it a priority to add colour to the streets of Cork as street art is her passion - This piece was inspired by The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Hokusai, after Fiona seeing his exhibits in the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam a few months previous. It turned out that a wave fit perfectly on these steps, as Hamid (the Manager) told her, these steps led down to where ships would dock to collect butter from the Butter Market, to be shipped all around Europe, so the wave is crashing down in the direction of where the water channel once was. While also adding a huge splash of colour to the laneway to brighten things up on a rainy day - Fiona says she really enjoyed working on this piece and meeting the locals of the Shandon Quarter, the back-packers from all the over the world and most of all Hamid and the employees of Kinlay House, who made working here a lot of fun - We loved working with her too! She is off to UCC this Autumn to do a Masters in Digital Art. #UrbanAesthetics #MeettheWorld #StreetArt #Mural #TheWave #PureCork #ShandonQuarter
