Irina Ballet Door Mural 23APR16 1 (530x800)
When it’s finished, it’s going to be a star attraction down at the Greystones Studios on Theatre Lane…

Irina Ballet Sketch Door Before March 2016Taking a dead-end corridor and its emergency exit and turning it into something beautiful is the studios’ artist in residence, Irina Kuksova. Having already worked her magic on a mural out on Theatre Lane‘s main boulevard, Irina now brightens up the inside of the studios too, with this eye-catching and mind-bending mural at the end of the 1st floor hallway.

What a face! What a painting!

What a face! What a painting!

And the beautiful thing is, the subject – a young ballerina – has a deep connection to Greystones studio, for teenager Jasmine’s mum, Rachel, runs The Goode School of Dance, one of the longest-running ballet schools in Wicklow.

This incredible work should be completely finished and installed by the second week in May, but, for now, we caught up with Irina in the early stages, to talk inspiration, perspiration and, eh, dance nation.

We don’t want to reveal too much at this early stage – so, watch this space for the great unveiling…
