Welcome to the House of MOB- Show pics!

Welcome! Big thanks to all who showed up for the opening night, had me a real good time! For the ease of those who can't physically get themselves to the show, I'll use the realm of internets to give you a walk through of the show. The show runs daily in the Boardroom, main st, Greystones (turn left out of DART station, last shop on the left) from 10am to 6pm until and including Saturday 19th of June. For those who like what they see feel free to drop me a mail: aul.pups@gmail.com Thanks!

Before I begin the tour, here's a summarised context- The show is about mob mentality and how people's fears of what everyone might think can get in the way of their dreams or their true self. I used multiple homogeneous characters to form over-bearing figures so as you pass through the space you get the feeling of being outnumbered and small. A lot of the canvas works point to how the mob can be omnipresent, but the inclusion of some inspirational and unshakeable characters like George Hook & Eamon Dunphy show that the mob's opinion is only as big or important as you make it yourself.
Lets begin on the outside- The guys in The Boardroom let me have complete freedom with this project, so I couldn't resist sprawling the mural all over.

Here's the view as you pass through the door. I though it would be cool to incorporate the canvas work into the murals themselves, so, eh, I did.
