Artist that worked with Cork Migrant Centre launches new mural in Cork City
A new mural by Irish street artist, Joe Caslin has been installed in Cork City.
The artist, who is originally from Roscommon, worked with Cork Migrant Centre to put together the new artworks as part of Cork Midsummer Festival.
Mr. Caslin collaborated with a group of 35 women from different backgrounds, who were given the opportunity to share their experiences and find creative ways to represent them through the art piece.
Participants discussed posture, gesture, and symbolism, before putting all their learning into practice and sitting for a portrait with the artist.
The large-scale piece at Sullivan’s Quay is one of two artworks by Irish street artist, art teacher and activist Joe Caslin being installed in Cork this month, the second piece being put up at Mallow Castle next week.
