Canadian Street Artist BirdO's Waterford Walls Mural in Ireland



Hookedblog are currently in South East Ireland in one of the countries oldest cities Waterford, for the third edition of the Irish street art festival Waterford Walls 2017. We have spent the weekend pounding the streets of Waterford to capture photographs of the invited street artists at work on their murals right across the city.

We have already shared a selection of images featuring the work of French graffiti artist Ador (Previously on Hookedblog) who painted a piece title The Cloud next to the New Street gardens along with a number of smaller works.

Another artist we spent some time watching paint a wall was Canadian street artist BirdO aka Jerry Rugg. The Toronto artist was back in Waterford for his second visit to the city having taken part in the 2016 edition of Waterford Walls festival. It was our first time meeting the artist although he has been to London where he collaborated on a mural with London street artist Louis Masai (Previously on Hookedblog) who has also contributed to the city walls of Waterford in 2016. Both artist teamed up with London Graffiti to paint a large scale piece on Clare Street in East London which is currently still running (see below).

For his Waterford Walls Mural BirdO took over an empty row of vacant bungalow houses onto which he painted one of his vibrant bird pieces which has now been named 'Joey Gunner'  by one of the local residents living opposite the empty row of houses.
