Gemma Aylward - Waterford Walls


Gemma Aylward is a Graphic Designer and a Street Artist at this year’s Waterford Walls Festival. Being involved with Waterford Walls since the beginning in 2015 she loves how the festival has noticeably boosted tourism and energy levels within the city. “There is a huge sense of pride that people have when they talk about Waterford and Waterford Walls and rightly so.” From a young age she has always been drawn to street art because it is art for everyone. She studied Visual Communications at Limerick School of Art & Design and Graduated in 2017. She now works at Waterford’s leading design agencies Emagine. She strives to keep painting big walls with positive messages and bright colours.
Gemma is a great example of the importance of nurturing young artistic talent. Her artistic style has developed hugely since 2015 and we look forward to painting with her again this coming August.
