The bold colour and simple geometric patterns of Shane O’Malley’s street art have become part of Galway city’s visual language. Having started out in Ireland’s vibrant graffiti subculture, his large-scale abstract works, inspired by themes of identity, mental and emotional health, journey and self-hood, drawing attention to over-looked and often-neglected corners of the urban landscape.
