Draw Out – Urban Exhibitionists Present “Rise” by SEK2

 

Draw Out is excited to announce the reveal of the sculptural installation from Ireland’s Visionary artist Sek2 outside Cahill May Roberts building. Draw Out is a model of Urban regeneration that uses the most creative resources to reinvent space both visually and functionally. Draw Out has created over 10 pieces throughout the city with this being the first sculptural construction.

This project has seen Sek masterfully craft this intricate contemporary design. Transforming raw materials into an impressive construction. Sek is one of Ireland most well recognised urban artists, this work is evidence of the transition urban art is taking into a more contemporary and grown up direction. His work is understated yet complex and full of craftsmanship. His recognisable pallet has a kind of grace and finesse that is rarely seen within this movement. Creative Direction Catherine O’Halloran says ‘ We are so proud of this piece we are about to unveil, its elevated the expectations of the project and we are now looking at work that is more dynamic and interactive. Using the fullest potential of the space and architecture. We have a really exciting programme that will continue to surprise and inspire people as well as ourselves. Draw outs vision is that we, as a city, are no longer hindered by consumer focused function but are ambitious enough to create dynamic examples of the highest quality art work that can live ‘outside’. We can then begin to relate with the environment in a whole new way, that is refreshing and invigorating. Sek says ‘This piece represents the potential within each and every one of us. Using simple raw materials we can build, create, manifest our own brilliance. These elements are found in all of us and our potential is not conditional on culture, background, colour or creed. The power to actualize and give life to the fullest extent of ourselves is a birth right. I hope to inspire people to rise to their potential and celebrate those who do. Let your Light Shine’   For information contact [email protected] or visit the website: drawout.ie
