Great news for Dublin's creative scene.

Iconic and acclaimed artist Maser AKA Al Hester, responsible for the infamous Repeal the 8th mural at the Project Arts Theatre, is opening his own gallery space in the city next week.

Atelier Maser on Charlemont Stwill be a hub for for creating original work and nurturing young talent - great news for up-and-coming artists looking to showcase their work.

The gallery will be open plan, and passersby may even catch a glimpse of the acclaimed artist at work from Charlemont St.

Maser is a dedicated mentor to many of Ireland’s emerging talent, and is already filling the Atelier’s events calendar with shows and exhibitions to promote their work.

“I get excited when I see promising talent and want to show young artists that success comes in many forms, and to ultimately help them achieve that success.”

Reflecting on this new venture, it became obvious that while he needed a space to call his own, it was equally important to him to create a space that gives something back to the community he champions. “I could just open a studio and paint but I have bigger ambitions, I want to show people that you don’t need a business degree to do well and be a success.”

Atelier Maser opens on December 7 with an exhibition from Donaghmede-born Peter Doyle - A Stag's Head.
