Wall Art Brings Joy To Tallaght
We were so touched by a wall art incentive in Tallaght. Emmalene Blake is an artist based in Tallaght and she has used her creative skills to help empower people during this time. Her murals embody the all-important message to "Stay Home" and they are being praised all around the world. One mural features rapper Cardi B and she reposted the picture on her own social media. As part of this project Emmalene invited local children to submit some drawings or draw their own designs to be included in these incredible murals.
