The studios in MART’s Malpas Street Gallery & Studios are based in a historic block on the edge of the Liberties. This cosy former office space is now home to a range of artists and creatives working across a number of disciplines.
Situated on the upper floor of an office block, this building has windows on two sides for lots of light and great views of the Liberties skyline. A large shared kitchen and social space gives studio members the opportunity to get to know their neighbours.
Located close to NCAD, as well as a range of cafes (The Fumbally, Two Pups, Cathedral Cafe), bars (John Fallon’s, The Headline, Whelan’s, Against the Grain), and restaurants (Sova Vegan Butcher, Boojum, Konkan).
The Malpas Street studio is situated on bus routes 49, 54a, or five minutes walk to 27, 56a, 77a, 150 and 151. Fifteen minutes walk from St Stephen’s Green Luas Stop.

A visual artist based in Dublin. Will draw on anything but prefers to do it on paper and pottery.
I am a Set and Costume designer based in Dublin (with Swedish roots) and a co-founder of MALAPROP. I work across theatre, dance, opera and the occasional film and music video. I like to collaborate on vibrant, expressionistic work, using colour, form and object as visual metaphor and dramaturgy, rather than (or as well as) as backdrop or decoration. I create detailed worlds which have a thoroughly developed material culture and consistent or decisively inconsistent attitude to the material.
