In 2016 he began painting murals and street art, this has led to painting commercial work for brands, businesses and creative agencies.

He also facilitates art workshops in schools and colleges. Garreth already has many recocognisable artworks throughout the City.


Ardú, featuring seven extraordinary murals from seven of Ireland's top street artists, arrived in Cork October 2020 injecting a burst of colour, vibrancy, and life into Cork city in lockdown - uniting the Leeside community through art, lifting its creative and community spirit at a time when it needed it most.

Ardú – the Irish for ‘Rise’ – bases itself on a theme of nostalgia and celebration. Cork City rose from the ashes 100 years ago following the Burning of Cork, and now faces the challenge to rise again.

At a time when we face shared and personal challenges, each of our artist’s murals are a rallying cry to the city – a call to remember that we have been through terrible times before and we rose up. We can do it again. Join us for a celebration of Cork city’s traditions, history, and resolution.
