AFTER a hugely successful expansion into South Dublin County in 2018, Dublin Canvas is back in local communities this summer. 

The inclusive Dublin Canvas project has given artists a chance to dash their local community with colour and now, this summer, 58 fresh utility boxes have been delegated for make-overs around the county.

Here are nine already completed boxes from across local communities…
