Born in Roscommon, Joe Caslin is a street artist, illustrator, art teacher and activist. Best known for his beautifully rendered drawings which manifest as towering murals, his highly accessible work engages directly with the social issues of modern Ireland.

He was the recipient of the Association of Illustration award for New Talent in Public Realm Illustration 2013.

Rather than leaving current societal needs to government the aim of his current project entitled, ‘Our Nation’s Sons’ he aims to spread a solution by persuading entire communities to address the very real problem of young male apathy and mental wellbeing.
