This article is an interview with former Provisional Irish Republican Army active service volunteer and current Sinn Féin activist and visual artist Danny Devenny. Culled from interviews conducted in Belfast between 1998 and 2000, during the Northern Ireland peace process, Danny Devenny reflects on the role of visual arts in the republican movement and discusses how public images framed the IRA prison struggle, connected republican communities to their history and traditions, and helped lay the groundwork for the successful politicization of Sinn Féin.
