Who are Fresco Consulting?
"We are a small team evolving from a background in public art. We manage and connect artists with brands to create rich & diverse art experiences throughout the public and private realm.
Having built our network of artists through experience within Dublin’s art and cultural landscape, we are actively working with Vision to connect their valued clients with artists which we represent, cultivating artistic collaborations as part of Vision’s multi-dimensional branding projects.
Our artist roster is diverse and vibrant; built on a foundation of both established and upcoming graffiti and street artists throughout Ireland. We primarily work within public art, creating large-format murals in indoor and outdoor spaces. However, we also collaborate with a cohort of creatives employed across photography, fine art, digital art and installation. We’re lucky to represent creatives such as KinMx, SUBSET and Dirty Dublin.
Our projects are far-reaching, having created art for corporate brands, international embassies and grass-roots community groups. Our previous collaborators include Indeed, Science Foundation Ireland, Iarnród Éireann (Irish Rail) and Virgin Media. We are an advocate for artists working across various styles; graffiti, street-art, sign-writing and more."
- The Fresco Consulting Team
We worked with street artist, Kathrina Rupit - KinMx, to create a public artwork on Baggot Street highlighting Fairtrade Ireland’s Fairtrade Fortnight 2021.
We liaised with Fairtrade Ireland in order to understand their key objectives in commissioning an artwork as part of their cause. The piece needed to inspire a conversation on cocoa, and the difficult truth that the farming of this global commodity currently rests on a network of inequality.
With a strong focus on female empowerment and cultural impact, KinMx’s style exemplified the creative voice needed for the project.
KinMx also worked with Ireland’s largest youth organisation, Foróige, to curate a mural which was inspired and informed by the lived experience of young members of the LGBTQ+ community.
The project spanned multiple outlets, from a virtual workshop between the artist & youth groups, to public artwork production and launch; culminating in the release of a campaign micro-documentary. The project underlines how these young people found deep solace in nature during their coming out journeys; and the importance of their feeling visible, valued and included within society.
Mexican Embassy of Ireland
The Embassy of Mexico in Ireland hosted a cultural event within their garden on Raglan Road, Dublin 4 to celebrate Día De Los Muertos 2021.
The design & installation of the flagship altar at the event was done by KinMx. Kathrina’s altar was inspired by her Mexican heritage and traditional Day of The Dead symbols; including sugar skulls and cempaxúchitl flowers.
Little Collins CBD
Little Collins CBD is a plant-based dispensary, offering ‘Melbourne’ style coffee, hemp tea & CBD products throughout Ireland. Their core values are sustainability, fairness & health. KinMx, and Little Collins CBD, collaborated to create a mural which honours the life & spirit of Ellen Murphy, a woman whose story is a leading influence behind the creation & culture of Little Collins. The design celebrates the rich connection between Ireland & Australia, playing with botanic & indigenous symbols and underlining the historical relevance of emigration in Irish life.
Crumlin Community Cleanup
Crumlin Community Clean Up is a volunteer-run group based in Crumlin, Dublin. The group activities are aimed at improving and sustaining the environment of the local area.
We consulted upon & managed the creation of a public artwork on Windmill Road by SUBSET. Commissioned by Crumlin Clean Up and supported by Dublin City Council, the artwork sets out to strengthen the volunteer group’s mission: taking ownership of the shared community environment and working towards its constant improvement in line with values of sustainability, democracy and inclusiveness.
Signs By Oner & AruBuBu
We had the pleasure of collaborating with Ireland’s national railway service, Iarnród Éireann, and Sphere 17 Kilbarrack to develop and produce a public artwork in the North Dublin community’s DART station.
The artwork design was developed through a series of workshops between our lead artists—ONER & AruBubu—and a group of twenty young people hailing from the local area. These conversations steered the creation of an artwork which reflected how local youth felt about their area, and how they wished to visually communicate the culture of Kilbarrack.
From the foundations of spray painting technique to graffiti & street art styles, we explored multiple aspects of public art with Sphere 17’s young people. Guided by our artists, they helped to deliver a bold and energetic artwork on Kilbarrack’s DART platform.
Each aspect of the project was documented and filmed by Dirty Dublin, culminating in a project micro-documentary.
Dublin-based artist, Sean Atmos created a public artwork within a residential laneway in Ranelagh. This piece is titled ‘Mutual’. It represents a large-format iteration of the artist’s signature style: hand painted & overlaid typography.
Multidisciplinary artist, Eoin, transformed this section of hoarding on a development site in Drumcondra, Dublin.
We understand that culture and creativity are inextricably linked: artists, designers and creative practitioners across a range of disciplines are central to the evolution of our culture. It is this centrality that drives us to do what we do.
Vision’s partnership with Fresco will deliver and implement collaborations that come to life through murals, wall graphics, visual communications, manifestations and more.
