Maser "No.27 - A Nod To Ed Ruscha" New Street Installation - Limerick City, Ireland
While we last heard from him last summer in Dublin (covered), Maser is starting his year with a bang and this epic new piece somewhere in Limerick City, Ireland.
The Irish artist just wrapped up this unreal installation entitled "No.27 - A Nod To Ed Ruscha" where he entirely remixed a standard petrol station with some of his distinctly colourful patterns.
I converted a derelict petrol station in Limerick city into an interactive installation, as part of a transformative urban art project. My work often boldly juxtaposes old and new, past and present in the architectural elements, the visual grammar and choice of pallet. I hope to create work that surprises people and questions their relationship with the familiar and the norm and also how dissociated we are from the space around us. -Maser
