For the Derry 2021 street art festival – rebranded as Roots Street Art – seven pieces were scheduled, one for each of Derry’s gates and celebrating Irish roots around the globe (Derry Journal) but the on-going pandemic made things difficult. Among the artists who did take part were Inkie (Mighty Oaks From Little Acorns Grow), Sufek (Eat Like A Bird), Mr Cenz (Femme Fatale), the Glöbel Bros (Conzo Throb and Ciaran Glöbel, who painted a Donegal Bus), and Sean Atmos (ig) who painted the piece above. Atmos is from Dublin but has roots in Dungiven.
