The group behind some of the most recognisable street art in Dublin have released a video documentary calling on the city council to radically change its regulations on street art.

The new video forms part of the Subset artistic collective’s Grey Area Project, responding to prohibitory planning laws. In the face of council demands to paint over their work, they decided to go on a blitz, covering the capital in murals quicker than they could be asked to take them down. Around 60 projects have been realised, with walls around the city coming alive with pieces by artists ADW, Aches, Sinead Bailey Kelly, James Kirwan, and others.
