Three individuals make up the group known as 'The Bogside Artists' - Tom Kelly, Kevin Masson and William Kelly. William's son Paul takes care of video and documentation. The group is famous for their murals in the area of Derry, Northern Ireland, known as Free Derry Corner. These murals depict key events of 'the Troubles' in the city since 1968. The artists have lived in the Bogside most of their lives and have experienced the worst of the conflict. Their work, chronicled in this book, depicts those events that they consider to have been the most significant during the last thirty years. Also check their new website [http://www.bogsideartists.com], soon to be on-line if not already.
