dc.description.abstract This article aims to uncover the hidden and lived experiences of graffiti artists in contemporary Irish society. It strives to give a face to those artists who are often depicted as masked or hooded villains. Semi- structured interviews were conducted with six artists ranging in ages from 18-38 years old. Overt participant observation was also used to witness a mural being undertaken by one artist and to gain a more in-depth understanding of what it means to be a graffiti artist. The findings concur with previously studies undertaken, while significant stand-alone results in relation to Irish graffiti culture are also presented. en_US
