• Derelict Gas Station Turned Into A Color Explosion | Maser | Via
Although the Oil Age hasn’t ended yet, the first petrol stations are being left empty. This development leads to new chances for urban transformation. That’s what renowned Irish street artist Maser must have thought when he transformed a derelict gas station in the city of Limerick into a colorful piece of art.

The artwork’s name No.27: A Nod to Ed Ruscha refers to Ed Ruscha’s pop art masterpiece Standard Station, Amarillo, Texas from 1963. Besides this art-historian flirtation, Maser’s intervention is also just beautiful to see. The old gas station has become a landmark to the city at a place that once was just a regular everyday service spot for car drivers.

The bright and shiny colors make the restyled gas station really stand out from the surrounding landscape. The artist explained to a local newspaper that he ”creates work that surprises people and questions their relationship with the familiar and the norm, also how dissociated we are from the space around us”.
