Maser creates art in Ballina during Ballina Fringe Festival 2020

Maser, one of Ireland’s leading street artists, headed west to collaborate with Foroige Ballina’s Neighbourhood Project to celebrate the theme of ‘Place’ by creating iconic street art.  

The concept for my mural at Ballina Fringe Festival is to approach the theme of ‘The Place’ in a considered and abstract way. It will be especially designed to be inclusive to locals and visitors alike, encouraging positive engagement and discourse by people from all walks of life.  

Taking my point of departure from the North Mayo phrase ‘it’s not just a place to visit, but a place where you feel alive’, my ambition is to capture the vibrant energy of Ballina town with my signature style of street art.  

MASER  created his street art piece during Ballina Fringe Festival 2020, on Hill St. Ballina. 

POSTPONED UNTIL LEVEL 2 – The community group will work with Maser to create their street art when Level 2 restrictions return, and a launch to celebrate all street art will take place then. 

A self-guided Pure Ballina street art walking trail will be also be launched as part of this event.  

Ballina is a place where human energy and nature intertwine in equal balance. The people who inhabit the town and the waterways which flow through it, harmoniously connecting with each other to create a sense of energy and life that flows throughout the county and beyond.  

It is the heartbeat of Mayo.
