In a statement, the Centre said they had taken the decision to remove it after receiving a warning notice from Dublin City Council Planning Department that the work was in violation of the Planning & Development Acts (2000-2015).
Project Arts Centre Artistic Director Cian O'Brien said they had what he described as “an astonishing response” to the artwork and wanted to thank everyone who has contributed to the conversation around the topic.
He said he in no way wishes to censor or silence an artist.
He said he respects the legal position that the DCC Planning Office is in and the parameters within which they are working.
Mr O'Brien said it is the first time Project has been presented with a planning notice for a painted artwork on the front of their current building.
He said that the centre is complying with the planning notice and has removed this artwork.
They said they looked forward to working through official channels with the street artist Maser, who created the work, and The HunReal Issues, who commissioned the mural, to explore the possibility of re-installing this work as soon as possible.
