When I travel I don’t leave Dublin or Ireland, I feel like I bring it with me, you know? I’m trying to showcase this Irish guy that’s doing stuff abroad.
- Alan Hester / Maser

Alan Hester aka "Maser" was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1981. At around the age of fourteen, Hester began to paint graffiti in Dublin. He used the street name Maser.
