DERELICT PETROL STATION GETS A COLOURFUL MAKEOVER

Irish graffiti artist Maser has transfigured a derelict gas station in Limerick City, Ireland, into a beautiful public art installation inspired by an American artist associated with the Pop art movement. The new urban art installation interestingly named “No.27” is one out of  20 series of redesigned sites organised by Limerick City of Culture.

Maser quoted “I hope to create work that surprises people and questions their relationship with the familiar and the norm and also how dissociated we are from the space around us.”

Maser has certainly transformed the abandoned gas station into an explosion of neon colours and shapes. The bold colours compliment each other creating a dynamic energy and a brighter and a much more alive place. It’s worth a visit if you’re nearby… just make sure you fill up your tank first.
