A Street Art Initiative celebrating Cork city’s traditions, history, resolution, and art.

Ardú arrived in Cork last month injecting a burst of colour, vibrancy, and life into the city in lockdown. Uniting the Leeside community through art, and lifting its creative and community spirit at a time when it needed it most.

Ardú – the Irish for ‘Rise’ – bases itself on a theme of nostalgia and celebration. Cork City rose from the ashes 100 years ago following the Burning of Cork, and now faces the challenge to rise again. As we soon rise gently out of lockdown, visitors to the city centre are invited to visit the Ardú Street Art trail through December.

Street art is the ideal medium for the times we live in. Cork City Council, Creative Ireland and Fáilte Ireland are delighted to present Ardú to the public, in a safe space where you can interpret the murals outdoors, and at a social distance from each other.

Featuring seven street murals by seven of Ireland’s most respected and
renowned street artists:

Deirdre Breen – Wandesford Quay
MASER – The Kino, Washington St
James Earley – Henry Street
Peter Martin – Kyle Street
Shane O’Driscoll – Harley Street
Aches – Anglesea St
& Garreth Joyce – Liberty Street
