Dublin-based Paul Gibson takes his favorite Irish phrases and traditional music lyrics and gives them his own visual artistic spin. His striking graphic posters manage to be both modern and nostalgic… not an easy task. Browsing his online gallery reveals the inspiration behind each piece, such as the first Irish phrase he learned, “glens” hidden in the images, and the songs that prompted the artwork.
