Irish artist Maser recently overhauled the Parnell Street petrol station in Limerick city as part of a transformative urban art project.
The Draw Out – Urban Exhibitionists project is a collaboration between Limerick City Council – who own the site – and Catherine O’Halloran, a senior youth worker in the Northside family resource centre in Ballynanty.
Maser spoke on the project saying he “‘creates work that surprises people and questions their relationship with the familiar and the norm, also how dissociated we are from the space around us” .
In addition to the derelict petrol station, that will be lit up at night creating a different overall effect, the installation also includes two cars that were completely painted. Huge and trippy!
