‘The Snug’ Fatti Burke x Hen’s Teeth
An installation and ode to the pub by illustrator Fatti Burke and Hen's Teeth.
Hen’s Teeth & Fatti Burke presented THE SNUG: an immersive installation celebrating the beating heart of the iconic Irish pub, in partnership with Guinness.
The Snug was an exhibit at Hen’s Teeth gallery in 2021 where everything has been designed by leading Irish illustrator Fatti Burke. Her playful illustrative style brings THE SNUG to life – her artwork runs across everything from the coasters on the table to the prints on the wall and memorabilia hanging around the place.
“I wanted to create a place of surreal familiarity on the walls of The Snug, covered in graphic artwork and nostalgic ephemera. There’s a shared longing for warm nights in the pub with your favourite people, and I took this longing along for a cheeky ride. Snugs have a comforting feeling and you want to leave them covered in jokes and brightness and freshly made memories. It’s about fun and Irishness and the power to be found in having a laugh,” says Fatti Burke, illustrator.
