‘Faces of Rathmines: An Artistic Tribute to an Invisible Front Line’, by hyperrealist artist David Munro. His pencil  portraits are of people who work or trade in the local community.

Munro set about creating a series of portraits depicting people who he refers to as his ‘invisible front line’. These are the people who he has encountered on a regular basis throughout the pandemic; ordinary men and women who maintained the sense of community in Rathmines despite unknown risks to their own safety. His aim is to engender a sense of appreciation for the efforts these, and other individuals, made to keep our lives as ordinary as possible in spite of the pandemic.

Unable to show the portraits in a regular exhibition setting due to current restrictions, the drawings are displayed in the windows of various businesses in Rathmines. The exhibition trail is detailed on the webpage and already people have had fun walking around Rathmines and discovering the images in the 12 host shop windows.

The rise in mental health issues as a direct result of covid is very real and the exhibition is proud to be in partnership with A Lust For Life – an Irish mental health charity with an emphasis on youth mental health.
