BeKreativ Live Art Billboard
In 2016 BeKreativ has aimed to throw a spotlight on creative talent across Ireland. BeKreativ has showcased a country bursting at the seams with creative talent, ambition and potential. We have focused on giving up and coming Irish Creatives a platform to showcase their work, on our platforms and in the media, culminating in a BeKreativ Live Art Billboard.
We gave 3D street artist, Mark Cronin a billboard on Grand Canal Street in Dublin to make his own. He chose to use the space to pay homage to the humble pencil.
“I got involved with this campaign after seeing BeKreativ on Facebook. I sent them my portfolio and they liked it so they commissioned me to design a billboard.”
“BeKreativ is about Beck’s supporting local artists. So I decided to paint a Beck’s pint glass on its side with pencils, markers and paintbrushes lying inside it. So it Beck’s literally supporting the artist.”
“This piece is an ode to the humble pencil. I simply can’t do the 3D drawing without a pencil and string for perspective so I figured why not give my tools the credit by making them the stars of this painting.”
Mark’s Live Art Billboard will be up for two weeks so get down to Grand Canal Street and see his work before it’s gone.
