This site is designed to showcase the work of a group of men from the Bogside in Derry who are known as - The Bogside Artists®.

The links to the left contain photographs of, and details about, their work.

The Bogside Artists have created a series of twelve large murals along the entire length of Rossville Street in the Bogside.

This collection of murals has become known as The People's Gallery©. This outdoor gallery was officially inaugurated on 31 July 2007.

The twelfth mural in the series was unveiled on 20th June 2008.

It was announced on 22 January 2010 that The Bogside Artists had been honoured with a prestigious art award. The three men won this year's Joseph Beuys/Demarco European Art Foundation Artists of Achievement Fellowship. The award ceremony will take place in The Peoples Gallery in February.

The most recent book by The Bogside Artists was launched on 27 February 2009.
