Robert Ballagh


Print, 20 x 27

Robert Ballagh is an urban artist who grew up in Dublin, Ireland. This classic image of Dublin’s famous O’Connell Street is based on a photograph taken around 1904. The picture includes an
image of James Joyce (famous author of Ulysses) and Ballagh’s mentor walking hand in hand, with Ballagh himself a few paces behind. Ballagh
included Joyce in this piece, as he acknowledges him to be one of the greatest Irish artists of that century. Joyce himself was penniless and could
always be found walking the streets of Dublin. Today, walking is still one of the wonderful characteristics of the city, as the people of Dublin know that walking is not only a means to get where you need to go, but also a means to meet the people you know.

Ugo Attardi, “Rome”

Print, 20 x 27

Ugo Attardi was an Italian painter, sculptor and writer, who moved to Rome in 1945. The atmosphere of Attardi’s Roman landscapes have been described as being inspired by Baroque Rome, a grand style and design known for evoking emotion that began in Italy in the 17th century. Attardi himself described this particular piece of Rome to be “secretive” and “mysterious”, leaving those observing this piece of work to wonder what is to be found behind the walls. Is it people in love? Fighting, killing or tensions? We are not meant to see what is behind those walls, as we are left to imagine and “become involved in another way”.
