They Only Come Out At Night

Street art (not only in Dublin) can be conventional (as in official, sanctioned – witness countless statues and monuments) or “guerilla” (as in done without asking for permission). And occasionally it is well hidden unless you know where to look. Or from where to look. Or even when to look.

Here we have a prime example of “When to look?”

A mural gracing one of the dreaded “El Cheapo” stores that usually pop up before things go totally down the drain. And executed in such a way … that it only comes out at night. When the shutters on the shop in Liffey Street Upper come down.

When Superman, Alice and the Joker appear. A curious trinity of sorts.
