Just before the holiday season The Icon Factory would like to present a collection of sketches selected from artists participating & collaborating with The Icon Project over the past few years.

The Sketches Exhibition is a collective idea to link diversity in a way of thinking about a sketch itself. Sketch is a rapidly created freehand drawing. Is it intend as a finished or an unfinished work? It is a definite record of what an artist sees and it can also be a base to develop an idea for later use.

We at The Icon Factory would like to share sketches from many of our in-house artists who help with The Icon Project on a regular bases. The idea came form artists to generate much needed funding for the project. Each Original Sketch will be sold for 150 € without frame / 165 € with frame and a percentage from each sale to go to support The Icon Project.

Please join us on the evening of 14th December. Bring your friends to have a gathering, a time to share about your idea of sketches and reflect on what artists present. Lets share and spend this time together for a good cause and for creating possibility for us all to be connected.

Love it love it love it. The guys n gals are reclaiming Oirish music and Culture providing us with amazing images from our literary , stage n musical heritage. This is Cool Irlanda at its most funky and everyone should support it. LAURA GRIMES
I was delighted to find a crossroads of back streets covered in murals celebrating the whole spectrum of Irish cultural icons. This means literary giants, musicians, political and popular personalities who have had an impact on Irish society, sporting heroes, thespians and a whole lot more. Sitting at the centre of the crossroads was the organisation responsible for this magnificent display - The Icon Factory.  VALERIE GROVE
We called into The Icon Factory and met Aga Szot. artist in residence, she is very passionate about her project, we really enjoyed the gallery and bought some FAB artworks......thank-you, looking forward to next visit! NOELLE HOLLYWOOD
One of the best discoveries in Dublin, definitely. ULTRA INSPIRING. Sublime artists ready to make your day with huge talent reflected in every corner of the gallery, and streets. And furthermore... Friendliness from here to the moon & back !! Thanks for everything -onemoretime- The Icon Factory. ELISA CASTRO
