We at Waterford Walls are thrilled to introduce our little sister, T-Walls! Five new murals will grace Tramore town centre as the project expands its reach to our favourite seaside spot. T-Walls launched in July 2016, when our good friend DMC painted Promenadhá, or the Victorian ladies on Main St, during the Promenade Festival. The bus terminus was then transformed by Le Bas, while Dan Leo brought a bright and beautiful heron to land on the Voujon Café.
DMC spoke to the Waterford Today about his T-Walls weekend: “Tramore is a wonderful place to work – the people are so friendly, the weather and the views make this a beautiful place to come, and I am delighted to be here”. He also ran a workshop with the local Pathfinders group, resulting in a collaborative piece of two boards reading ‘Respect each other’, which will be displayed during the main festival weekend in August as part of our art trails.
The Waterford Walls team has been busy in our efforts to bring the magic of this street art project to Tramore in collaboration with Tramore Development Trust, primarily funded by Waterford City and County Council, and the local Tidy Towns committee. Locals and visitors alike have been captivated watching the artists in action, and we can’t wait to see how the town changes as more pieces are added. As always, we encourage the local community to get involved by volunteering with the team – just get in touch!
