ADW Solo Exhibition Born To Create Price List. ADW is proud to present ‘ BORN TO CREATE’. Please join us for the opening 17th Nov from 6-9 pm.
Ireland is renowned for its diversity in culture and arts and is home to some of the most creative and progressive urban artists in the world. In recent years Ireland has become a hive of activity for street and urban art. ADW is no different here is a look at ADW Solo Exhibition Born TO Create Price List.
Art has been central to ADW’s life ever since he started dabbling with his creativity while still in primary school. After ?ve years studying animation in Ballyfermot college, Dublin, he moved to Britain to work in the computer games industry. In 2005 he returned to a booming Ireland. Slowly becoming more and more disillusioned with a future in the computer graphics world and dreaming of a more creative future. However, his mind was made up for him in the fallout from the economic crash of 2008, when he was made redundant from his full-time job as a 3D artist. He returned to his creative roots and began to produce his own art full-time. A determined creative and social activist, the economic collapse provided the backdrop for much of his art and street-art, earning him much acclaim and recognition in the process. His art attempts to reflect the everyday hopes and fears of the ordinary people. Laced with satire and burnt by honesty, his pieces are often imbued with a dash of acerbic humour.
This exhibition sees an engaging and exciting mix of new work from Ireland’s boldest street and urban artists who has continually pushed the boundaries of craft to new levels. A culture clash of somewhat surreal art, his work begs the public to question the status quo, especially relating to the social structures and political forces that we live under.
ADW combines all that he knows from his street-art and digital design background to create works of art that depict his perspective of the world around him, inviting the public to engage and react. Inspired by the world around him, his work is a comment on society. The end result is an exhibition of layered narratives and installations that pushes the boundary between traditional and contemporary visual art.
