November 2015 – street-art Dublin
The starting point was a weekend with one of my brothers, he came back from 1 year spent in Australia and we wanted to have good time together. Day time, we hung around the beautiful city of Dublin, and we found some really cool places in Temple Bar or Portobello but… the magic discovery was in Tivoli Theater where we found a street-art citadel full of great walls and gifted artists like @smugone, @james_early, @thisisfriz, @danleodesign and so many more…
Night time ? Dublin is a so cool city, full of music, nice people, smooth ambiance, good whiskeys and Guinness. Enjoy !
