PICS: There is a new mural in Dublin in the same place where the Stormzy image was removed
It is certainly ... different.
People had noticed that the spot where the Stormzy mural was first painted and then removed in Smithfield in Dublin 7 was becoming a hot-bed for activity again in the last week or so.
Back in November 2017, the artists behind the Stormzy mural - a collective known as SUBSET - took the time before it was eventually taken down completely by painting in a corporation worker painting over the mural (META!), and then an image right around the corner of Trump wearing a cap that said "Make America Grey Again!"
Finally, a plaque on the wall, like one you would see in a museum, that was titled "Grey Wall (2017)", and went into some description as to how the once prominent artwork went on to become a large, dull collection of bricks.
Well, it looks like SUBSET came back to re-muralize the wall as part of what they're calling the #GreyAreaProject, and it is certainly about as colourful from a dull grey wall as you can get.

There are a number of other images on the SUBSET Twitter feed attributed to the #GreyAreaProject, and they all do a pretty great job of brightening up a series of otherwise dull surfaces.
