Passers-by watched as one of Temple Bar's forgotten laneways was transformed into a spectacular collage of high-end artistry.

The group of talented artists created the works 
of art in Temple Bar's Crampton Court yesterday afternoon.

The project, called Outvasion, is part of 'Love The Lanes', a joint initiative between Dublin City Council and the Temple Bar Company which aims to address issues in the laneways of the popular area.

"Over the years these lanes have fallen into disuse and have become magnets for anti-social behaviour. Our goal is to reactivate these lanes for people to use and enjoy through creative intervention," a council spokesperson said.

Masterminded by stencil artist KEMP, the exhibition aims to give the public greater access to the work of street artists and the processes and techniques involved.

The project is just one of a number of art installations launched in Temple Bar this year.
