I love this! You go to park and there are artists selling their work. Super cool. Now this is the type of items I want to buy and bring home. One of a kind original art from the creator.

Whilst cruising the streets, we stumble on some pretty impressive art hanging along the fence of merrion sq, the art on display was high end, didnt seem overly expensive as low overhead we expect, definetly worth a look.
