That's a great circa 1940's modernist building, Plugged were based there briefly and put on a few gigs. It needs to be restored but that makeover is fucking hideous. They did the same to the ESB substation across from UCC entrance which is similar era.

I agree with Drucker. Cultural vandalism. Break out the magnolia or French white to fuck, pronto. A total eyesore.

Careful now: the city council teamed up with the guy who did it, so your criticism will be perceived as “it’s stimulating discussion like all good art does.”

But to be honest, the Russian non-conformist artist Mihail Chemiakin put it best when commenting on Voina: “Many of us can draw a phallus with our eyes closed, but to create something serious? That’s hard, that needs to be studied. Anyone can be an amateur shit-doodling hooligan. It’s unpleasant and casts a shadow on all serious artists.”

Discuss.

In a stimulating way.

Shane's CV is pretty crap tbh. They must have got his 'piece' pretty cheap.

The city cultural apparatchik will be ecstatic

Cork's StevieG is a fan.



"In recent weeks, significant works have been painted on prominent buildings, with Shane O’Driscoll’s reworking of the disused ESB substation by Brown Thomas being the latest in a number of colourful new commissions. It’s a spectacular addition to Caroline Street, and the accompanying lighting, running across the street at night, also adds to the overall vibe".


NAH Stevie, it's awful.

Thats not even decent abstract art, it looks like something done by a transition year project.
