Holly Pereira is an Irish-Singaporean illustrator & muralist based in Dublin, Ireland. Her work is colourful, fun and bold. Her hand-painted murals often take reference from folk art, and she creates bright and exuberant environments in which we are invited to explore. Her lively work also celebrates her love of typography and language, eking meaning out of imagery, and imagery out of meaning. Her work ranges from digital illustration for national advertising campaigns to four storey, hand-painted murals. Through her work, she seeks to investigate the experience of the public space through colour, light and design.
Holly has transformed a gable wall in Newry Street into a stunning work of art. Holly has been inspired by the area’s unique connection to the Brontë family. Her hand-painted ‘Welcome to Banbridge’ design celebrates the Brontë link to the area using typography inspired by the world’s most famous literary family.
