SPACER STREET ART

SPACER street art is an ongoing project that started as a simple oil painting and then stencil project.  Today it’s a mix of street art, canvas,  augmented reality and virtual reality. I have alwyas been interested in film editing and compoosting tools and now with VR and AR I can intergatre work in the real and virtual worlds. 

The following are a slection of previous SPACER paintings and collaborations.

This was a tough one for me but  I enjoyed it a lot. This was a small project working with the Residents Association at Richmond Cottages in Summer hill Dublin 1. We chatted for a few weeks about what we could do for the commission. It was decided and agreed by the residents to do this picture of Irish Writer Brendan Bhean.

Its been quite some time since I painted a portrait and Ive never painted on of this scale.
Measuring approx 9×6 Meters High.
It took me a while to get the face I wanted or was happy with. Ots of frustration over the few days but I was happy in the end. I owe a huge thanks to Brian the house owner and the man who organised the scaffolding, allowing me those extra few days.

Also a big thanks to Mick Raferty and the local residents association. Lastly I owe Tommy a big thanks. He was helping me out and cracking jokes for the duration.

This was fun. Im looking forward to another opportunity for a large one like this.

GRAFFITI WITHOUT GRAVITY STREET ART COMP

ESA and The Hague Street Art teamed up for a unique crossover project between street art and space travel.

On 18 May 2018, 12 street artists from across Europe competed to create their own masterpiece on a square canvas using ‘space’ as inspiration at Space Expo in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. Two participants were picked from a selection of wild card entries.

A three-member jury, together with voting by the public, will select which artist created the very best artwork within the deadline of one day.

The selected artist will win a seat on a parabolic flight and become the first street artist to sign a piece of art in microgravity.

During three-hour flights, ESA runs experiments on a rollercoaster aircraft that offers 20 seconds of zero gravity at the top of the apex as it flies up and down at 45° angles.

See the final 12 products here .
Voting closed 1st June 2018.

EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY

living Planet Symposium, May 2019

Delighted to be selected from 50 artists around Europe to the the Artist in Residence for the ESA at the Living Planet Symposium in May this year. I got to work closley with Dr paul Fisher, D Anna Maria Trofaler and the rest of the Climate office team ending with a number of stencial art paintings at the living Planet Symposuim in Milan.

The Climate office webiste says: Staging the art exhibition during the event aims to  draw the scientific community’s attention to ESA’s Climate Change Initiative and the satellite-derived climate data records it generates.

These long-term, global observations help researchers to produce new scientific evidence and inform international decision-making through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The popular appeal of street art is also expected to inspire and engage the next generation of Earth scientists and help to explain the findings and benefits of this initiative to a wider general public audience.

Shane’s collaboration with ESA follows his selection as the winner of the Climate from Space art competition last year, and continues his creative love of space.

His previous works have explored the concept of ‘choices’ on a journey and feature an astronaut character of neutral gender he calls SPACER. The new exhibition will include large-scale signature artworks and further examine the choices humanity is making, through the narrative of the climate and our growing knowledge of how our planet is changing.

“Working with the ESA Climate Office, I aim to celebrate the space that monitors Earth, but also to challenge the audience to consider what our future climate will be like based on the choices being made today.”

PLAYFUL CITY

PLAYFUL CITY

This was a great little project to be involved in. This artwork was one of a number of street art pieces around the city over the last months. The works are aimed at highlighting a more play inclusive city.

Play n the city is a group in Dublin that want to create a more playful, engaging & inclusive city. Launching in 2017 the project works in number of areas if design that will enhance any city and work with the children’s right to play.

From the website:
‘Last year was the 25th anniversary of Ireland ratifying The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Luckily for us all, Article 31 of the UNCRC protects and recognises the Right to Play. So working with the super team at the Ombudsman for Children’s Office we wanted to do something a little different that spoke to both young and old.. we brought together some of Dublin’s best street artists and poets and launched a street art campaign around our fair city to brighten your day and highlight the right of the child to play.

Also working on the project providing the poem was word smith, Stephen James Smith and the  lettering was designed by Cormac from Mack Signs.

You can get involved and make an area in your city to be more play inclusive. Contact the guys at aPlafulCity for more information.
