Who are you and what do you do?
I'm Konk, 23. I'm a DJ, Graffitti Artist, Promoter and Visual Artist.
I suppose I'm known as the first Irish graffiti artist to be name-checked in the New York Times and also the first street artist to do covers for le cool Dublin.
I was famously brought before the High Courts for criminal damage and fined €13,500 (most ever for a graffiti artist). I also got a two year suspended sentance and 240 hours of community service.
I've been a DJ since 16, playing Boogie, 80's, Funk, House and as a warm up act for Krystal Klear. I'm also involved in a new graffiti campaign for DADDY OR CHIPS in the Good Bits which is opening on Oct 2nd.
My own new night, OH BABY! is in the Twisted Pepper on Sept 25th. Check it.
Konk's le cool cover can be seen on Liberty Lane which runs behind Whelans. With thanks to Hell Pizza.
