Irony

This piece was originally planned for Hit the North in 2015, but an issue with the elevator made it impossible. However, keen to make good use of his time, Irony moved to Bank Square to create a portrait there, with collaborative details by Louis Masai. He returned to Belfast in 2016 to complete the original work, but again faced technical issues and time pressures due to weather.. 

The completed piece fuelled conversations locally around female portraiture in street art in Belfast, and in particular issues around the male gaze, and led to a drive to encourage visiting artists to take different subject matter, or to consider the representation in their work on the city’s walls.
