At the start of 2019 we were approached by Friends of the Irish Environment (FIE). This group of Irish citizens have entered legal proceedings with the Irish Government based upon their claim that they are knowingly contributing to dangerous levels of climate change.
In February of this year we painted a piece inspired by climate change in an attempt to raise awareness regarding the actions of FIE. Given the complexity and urgency of the problem we felt we needed to do more.
Shortly afterwards we painted a piece inspired by the life and work of David Attenborough, as a nod to his fight against the desecration of our planet and its wildlife. Dublin City Council have requested this piece be removed. We intend to use the disagreement to draw attention to the legal proceedings and generate support for FIE.
