Louis painted the patchwork hammerhead sharks on Barrack Street at Waterford Walls 2015, with the astonishing statistic that, ‘By 2030, 90% of marine life will be endangered’. This year, Louis painted the elephants on Barker Street, which have fast become a favourite of locals and visitors to Waterford alike.

Waterford Walls are thrilled to introduce our little sister, T-Walls. Five new murals will grace Tramore town as the Waterford Walls project expands its reach to one of Ireland’s favourite seaside spots.
Waterford Walls was founded in 2015 by a small team looking to bring some much needed colour back to Waterford. The project is now in its second year and has launched a rejuvenation of the city centre and Tramore town centre.
