Incognito 2018

Added on by Adrian and Shane.
We are delighted to announce that we're part of the ‘Incognito’ exhibition, Jack & Jill’s 2018 Public Art Project.

Over 1000 Irish and International artists have joined this initiative to paint, draw, photograph, etch, sew or create something on a postcard (150mm x 100mm), which will form the largest group exhibition held in Ireland this year. It will include work by Tracey Emin, John Kelly, Peter Curling, Martin Gale, Olivia Golden, P.J. Crook, Ed Miliano, Abigail O’Brien, and Richard Gorman – but all pieces are exhibited anonymously, and sold for €50 each to the first buyer present in person at the Solomon Gallery after 10am on Friday 6th April.

In 2017, this event raised €81,000 for the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation – but this year we undertake to solve the dilemma of the queue going all the way round the block on the sale days, by having two viewing days before the artworks go on sale.

4th - 8th APRIL – SOLOMON GALLERY, DUBLIN

Sole Of The City

Added on by Adrian and Shane.
We were commissioned by Dr Martens to create this painting specifically for their new Dublin store.

The painting titled ‘Sole Of The City’, is now on permanent exhibition at the Dr Martens store on Duke Street, Dublin 2.

"The idea behind 'Sole Of The City' is that the sole of the boot is the map of the city. The classic imprint of the Dr Marten boot rising to become buildings and city streets. Depicting iconic Dublin landmarks, including the Poolbeg Chimneys, Liberty Hall, the Spire, Molly Malone and the Ha'penny Bridge, rising from the sole."




This time lapse video shows how the painting was created:

ZOO

A live art installation by Adrian+Shane

September 19th - 22th at Filmbase, as part of Tiger Dublin Fringe 2016


Irish pop art duo invite the public to join them in collaborating on their latest collection:



Pop art duo, Adrian+Shane invite the public to join forces with them in collaborating on their latest project, ‘ZOO’, an art experiment for everyone using social media for inspiration. Running as part of Tiger Dublin Fringe 2016, ‘ZOO’ runs from 19th to 22nd September, at Dublin’s city centre art space, Filmbase.

Created as an immersive live experience, offering viewers a rare chance to watch the duo at work ­ either in person or via online streaming. ‘ZOO’ provides members of the public with a way of watchin g and working with Ireland’s leading pop artists, Adrian+Shane. Encouraged to bring along any belongings which the artists will in turn use as inspiration for their latest artwork ­ whether this be an old toy, items of clothing or novelty telephones, where these personal items may be used in photographic self portraits created in their own studio by the artists, which has been opened to the public for the first time.

From this Adrian+Shane will draw inspiration for their ‘Fringe’ themed ‘ZOO’ and create entire artworks which will go on sale immediately after they’re made. As Adrian+Shane say themselves, it’s freshly baked art.’
Adrian+Shane have been creating art together for over 18 years. They specialise in pop art, with a variety of mediums, from paint, to collage, photos and video. They use their art to comment on religion, sexuality, politics and have exhibited around the world including Dublin, London, New York, Berlin, L.A., Barcelona, San Francisco.

The idea for the ZOO project came over lunch one day. The duo realised that thanks to social media outlets such as Facebook and Snapchat, these days everyone wants to be heard. The public wants to feel like their voice matters. With this in mind, the artists began to think of a way to include contributions from the public in their art.

Throughout the four day run, the artists studio will welcome a selection of invited guest visitors who will become the artists muse for a time.

From midday on 19th September, Adrian+Shane invite everyone to come down and join in their latest interactive art experiment, or follow its progress via social media; Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, Youtube, etc.

‘ZOO’ is a FREE unticketed event & will run daily from 12:00 ­- 19:00 / 19th ­- 22nd September 2016 at Dublin’s Filmbase, Curved St, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, Ireland, D02 PC43
