An incredible mural of rapper Stormzy has appeared just off Smithfield Square in Dublin.

A group called Subset created the lifelike mural of Stormzy ahead of his sold-out gig in The Olympia Theatre tonight.

They told 98FM News that they decided to pay tribute to the 27-year-old because "he's a complete boyo", they are also crossing their fingers that he might even stop by and see it while he's in Ireland.

They based it on a still from his video for Shut Up.

The British hitmaker seems delighted with the honour, he shared a photo of it on Twitter and said: "Dublin, I don't know who's responsible for this but thank you and tomorrow is gonna be MAD. Kicking off the tour strong."

Others have been equally impressed with the eye-catching artwork.

It's been a huge year for Stormzy, his debut solo album Gang Signs & Prayer reached the top of the UK album charts and his fanbase grew even bigger after he collaborated with Ed Sheeran on his song Shape Of You.

Stormzy is just kicking off his huge tour and will also headline Friday night of Longitude at Marlay Park on July 14.
