ADW

Art has been central to ADW’s life ever since he started dabbling with his creativity while still in primary school. After five years studying animation in Ballyfermot college, Dublin, he moved to Britain to work in the computer games industry. In 2005 he returned to a booming Ireland. Slowly becoming more and more disillusioned with a future in the computer graphics world and dreaming of a more creative future. However, his mind was made up for him in the fallout from the economic crash of 2008, when he was made redundant from his full-time job as a 3D artist. He returned to his creative roots and began to produce his own art full-time. A determined creative and social activist, the economic collapse provided the backdrop for much of his art and street-art, earning him much acclaim and recognition in the process. Laced with satire and burnt by honesty, his pieces are often imbued with a dash of acerbic humour.
