“I often spend months thinking, exploring, developing, refining and realizing a single idea. My work conveys an emotional response to the society in which I am present. Both personal trauma and my career as a teacher have influenced who and what I highlight in my work.”
Joe Caslin is an Irish street artist, art teacher, and activist. Best known for his beautifully rendered pencil drawings, which manifest as towering pieces of street art, his highly accessible work engages directly with the social issues of modern Ireland on an unavoidable scale. In this workshop, he will give an insight into his work.
