Why settle for the art world when you can have the whole world?

Firrell says of himself, “I have been described as a typographer, a designer, a writer, a campaigner, an activist, an artist, a provocateur, a benign propagandist, and a sci fi geek.” Known world-wide for his large scale projections of words and phrases on British monuments such as Guards Chapel, the National Gallery in London, the Houses of Parliament, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Tate Britain and St Paul's Cathedral, Firrell’s goals are to arouse people’s thoughts, to encourage them to question the structure around them, to guard themselves against oppression and to explore their own sense of curiosity. He believes that art is for everyone and that each individual should be allowed to process thoughts in their own way and to develop a unique way of life without interference. By projecting provocative images, Firrell hopes to stimulate thoughts that the every-day citizen may not have had an invitation to investigate previously.
