Be Grand: The Leaving Cert Resit,

Amy Louise O’Callaghan – Artist

June 18, 2019

Break out your PVC glue and get your parents’ permission, as this week’s Be Grand lets its inner Neil Buchanan out! Cork artist Amy Louise O’Callaghan joins Andy to talk about her art which reimagines Irish pop culture icons in the style of Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli.

Amy talks about how she first fell in love with Japanese culture and how Anime has made her the artist she is today. She also chats about how being an artist has changed in the digital age, how you can use it to find your voice and what it’s like going through school during the era of social media.

And have you ever wondered what it would like to see a bunch of drunk people in a field in Ireland in an anime style? Well thanks to the 2014 Leaving Cert, you will wonder no more!

So this is a Be Grand, this is a Be Grand….THIS IS Be Grand. Art Attack reference there…
