ADW

ADW (Assault with a Deadly Weapon) is one of the most infamous street artists on the Irish scene at the moment. His pieces, which appear with a bewildering frequency, attack the Church, Ireland’s politicians and poke fun at various parts of Irish culture. Although he has only been active for a few years, his work is some of the most recognized in Dublin. In fact when David McWilliams, a doompreaching economist in Ireland who’s gloomy predictions turned out unfortunately to be all too true, decided to use a graffiti-based intro

to his new lectures on “Punk Economics” he signs the graffiti piece DMW in an obvious tribute. When even the economists are referencing you, you know you’ve reached infamy! I met up with ADW recently to talk to him about life as a street artist in a country where rebellion has always been part of the national psyche.
