2/3 Argus House, Malpas Street, Blackpitts, Dublin 8
The six studios in MART’s Malpas Street Gallery & Studios are based in a historic block on the edge of the Liberties, located close to NCAD, as well as a range of cafes (The Fumbally, Two Pups, Cathedral Cafe), bars (John Fallon’s, The Headline, Whelan’s, Against the Grain), and restaurants (Sova Vegan Butcher, Boojum, Konkan). This cosy former office space is now home to a range of artists and creative professionals working across a number of disciplines.
Situated on the upper floor of an office block, this building has windows on two sides for lots of light and great views of the Liberties skyline. A large shared kitchen and social space gives studio members the opportunity to get to know their neighbours.
The Malpas Street studio is situated on bus routes 49, 54a, or five minutes walk to 27, 56a, 77a, 150 and 151. Fifteen minutes walk from St Stephen’s Green Luas Stop.

Sean Clarke is a Dublin based director and cinematographer. He works mainly in documentary and film.
Architect/Artist interested in space in all its forms, mainly in the absurd and pathological/poetical aspects of it. I have worked with/in different media using low cost and recycled materials in different sizes and formats. Currently involved in architecture, working in 3 addiction centres and at times in a local prison in Dublin.
Creative external designer with flair & vision for edgy solutions
I am a Set and Costume designer based in Dublin (with Swedish roots) and a co-founder of MALAPROP. I work across theatre, dance, opera and the occasional film and music video. I like to collaborate on vibrant, expressionistic work, using colour, form and object as visual metaphor and dramaturgy, rather than (or as well as) as backdrop or decoration. I create detailed worlds which have a thoroughly developed material culture and consistent or decisively inconsistent attitude to the material.
Torn between writing and painting I use text as image
I am a Dublin based stage and production designer. My work spans theatre, music and film and often incorporates projections and live visual elements. Although working predominantly in theatre I increasingly work closely with a number of musicians developing and designing live shows and music videos. Artists I frequently work with include Kojaque, Soft Boy Records and Soda Blonde.
Melting together a love of candle burning and a passion for preserving the environment, Ochre embodies an ethical and eco-friendly approach to candle making. Each vessel is hand-poured in Dublin using 100% Eco Soy Wax mixed with a blend of essential oils providing you with a cleaner burn that is better for both you and the environment.
Vintage Women’s wear boutique, selling a range of unique affordable pieces as well as one off designer pieces. Babydoll’s calling has always been to keep the love affair and mystery of vintage alive. We bring all our dolls beautiful gems weekly. Our pieces tell a story and are far from the every day run of the mill vintage you will find.
