agra-ffiti: street art goes rural

2.jpg

Silage bales are just gorgeous just on their own.  In Ireland, Artist Kev Largey converted a plastic covered pyramid of them by taking his street graffiti skills to the rural field, an art form we’re coining as “agra-ffiti”.

A popular figure in Belfast’s alternative art scene for over ten years, Largey began his career as a graphic designer and illustrator, quickly moving from designing street wear clothing with the likes of Apache Tribe, to creating work on a much larger scale on canvas and sometimes on recycled goods like old vinyl records or planks.

Having created countless exhibitions and large scale murals both inside and out, Largey has collaborated with some of Europe’s best known exponents of street art. He has painted walls in Dublin, Manchester, New York and Thailand, and received commissions closer to home, such as a piece in  Belfast’s North Arcade. He also organizes artists for aWinter Base event in the Ulster Hall.

Now, wouldn’t this be fabulous for attracting the Pokémon Go crowd???  I’m just sayin.
