  • "Looking back, I remember the whole space over the three years transforming from various shades of grey into a vastly colourful space full of murals, flowers, rock walls, raised beds, firepits, stages, kitchens, a treehouse in a warehouse etc. One could walk around for hours as if in a giant art gallery. The school chairs, which were a common sight around grangegorman, were part of a ‘words in the warehouse’ event. This is also inside ‘sloppy warehouse’. Virtually all the graffiti seen in these works is a reproduction of the graffiti seen in these spaces and others around Dublin. All artists, all tags and graffiti ‘lingo’ can be recognized; DWI, CISTO, DVB, Ai, AEK CREW, RASTO 187-in-heaven (homage to a deceased) etc." David Ryan
