THE BOGSIDE ARTISTS

Three individuals make up the group known as The Bogside Artists – Tom Kelly, Kevin Hasson and William Kelly. The group is famous for their murals in the area of Derry, Northern Ireland, known as The Bogside. These murals depict key events of 'the Troubles' in the city since 1968.

The artists have lived in the Bogside most of their lives and have experienced the worst of the conflict. Their work is a chronicle of those events that they consider to have been the most significant during the last thirty years. In telling this story they have served a pressing need for their community and Derry people in general to acknowledge with dignity if not pride the price paid by those who became victims of the struggle for democratic rights.
