The piece, which was seen on the side of the Project Arts Centre, showed a heart shape with the words ‘Repeal the 8th.’

Earlier Sarah Pierce, chair of the board of Project Arts Centre, explained why it was removed.

“We have taken the decision to remove the mural artwork by celebrated street artist, Maser, painted on the front of our building, after receiving a warning notice from Dublin City Council Planning Department that the work is in violation of the Planning & Development Acts,” she said.


Project Arts Centre artistic director, Cian O’Brien, added: “We have had an astonishing response to this artwork by Maser and I want to thank everyone who has contributed to the conversation around this important topic.”

“I in no way wish to censor or silence an artist; I respect the legal position that the DCC Planning Office is in and the parameters within which they are working.”
