Blooms Hotel, public art on a grand scale – A talk by the artist James Earley
February 4, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
For the first in our Spring / Summer 2019 lecture series, we are delighted to welcome James Earley to talk about his work creating the iconic exterior wall art on Bloom’s Hotel in Temple Bar, Dublin. The project took one year to complete and is the largest public artwork in Ireland to date.
James Earley’s distinctive style celebrates and pays homage to his family’s rich artistic past within Irish stained glass art. Earley has been producing artworks in public spaces since 1997. He began painting letter-based graffiti and played an active role in the Irish graffiti movement. From 2010, he started to develop abstracted figurative works with an aesthetic rooted in stained glass. He has traveled extensively with his art throughout Europe, the States, Asia and has worked on a variety of large scale projects with a mixture of arts-based organisations as well as multi-nationals that support the arts.
