Garreth Joyce (b. Cork 1980) is a Graphic Artist currently based in Dublin, Ireland. He’s a graduate of Limerick school of Art and Design. After a chequered career in Graphic Design and travelling the world for over a decade, he returned to Ireland and began painting his designs and illustrations. His current work takes inspiration from billboard and advertising posters in the street. These printed forms decay over time, overlaying new posters onto old, ripped up shapes, textures and colours form a new image, the messages therein lose their meanings and gain new ones.
This is Garreth’s first time painting at Waterford Walls festival.
