It is too late to write about this festival, but I wasn’t in the country in August and took my pictures only last week. An artist from Toronto created a mural for this festival, and I am happy to mention one of my favorite blogs Graffiti Lux and Murals that belongs to amazing Resa from Canada. If you want to see breathtaking street art, please visit and follow her blog.
The first two images are the most impressive. Smug One, a Glasgow based artist, created these two photo-realistic works just a block from each other.
Very detailed artwork by AOW, Ireland.
Work by ESTR, Ireland
Blue Tit by Danleo, Ireland, is about to snatch a student 🙂
More works in the New Street Park. I am pretty sure the Fox is created by Brendan Butler, but have no clue who is the author of that Happy Girl mural. Lisa Murphy, may be? Her work was in this exact spot last year.
This is one of my favorite works by Serbian artist Vunik.
Two fantastic murals by London-based artist Louis Masai are dedicated to preservation of wild life. Hammer sharks in Barrack street…
… and Elephants in Barker street.
Around the corner, there is a dreamy work of Kathrina Rupit (KINMX) from Mexico.
Next to it is a surreal piece created by Jerry Rugg (Birdo) from Toronto, Canada (sorry for the obstructed image!).
This work of Joe Caslin is dedicated to mental health. You can see it in the previous image, far in background, because it is on the other side of the river. I shared two of Joe Caslin’s works in my blog last year. In my next blog I will tell you what is hiding under the mural 🙂
I am sorry I didn’t share all the murals scattered around the city centre. There are more, and they are all beautiful. Murals often cover unattractive walls, but some buildings just have to go. We will talk about such buildings in my next blog 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend!
Thank you, Maria!
I am in love with street art, beautiful.
Thank you so much! Street art festivals bring so much joy to this town.
I love murals. Thanks for sharing, Inessa.
Thank you for stopping by, Olga!
Reblogged this on PenneyVanderbilt.
Thank you for the reblog!
Thank you for writing a great blog
❤ Thank you for your kind words!
Fabulous pictures and murals!!
Thank you so much!
I just adore these. How cool to explore the streets, never knowing what imagination you’ll meet next! xxxx
Yes, true. There are many more paintings that I discover in the streets through the year. Soon I will have another blog post ready 🙂
Amazing Art.. I love to see this, it certainly brightens up an otherwise drab wall 🙂
It does. This part of the city deserves a bit of color.
Wow! These are just sooo awesome! Why can´t all graffiti look like this? 😉 Just love the blue tit about to snatch the student, I just knew those cute little birds are in fact monstrous beasts 😉 And the first portraits and those lovely elephants! Ah, all are so great to look at! Thank you so much for sharing these, Inese! Wish I could paint just like that, but I guess, I´ll stick to canvas and paper 😉 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ❤
Sarah, I too cannot believe that all this beauty is spray painted. I would only make a mess and make myself dirty 🙂 xxxxxxx
Hehe! Exactly! I would also probably end up with inhaling most of the paint instead of applying it on the walls 😉 Have a very lovely weekend, Inese! xxxxxxxxxxxx ❤
Inese, These are amazing.
Thank you so much, Sheri! These works made such a difference.
These murals are fabulous! I always feel lucky if I see one on a building around here. Another thing I would love to see!
It is a new festival, we didn’t see much of that art here before.
Amazing! We love murals and street art. These artists are so talented!There is so much talent in the world, sadly most of it is undiscovered. You’re doing an excellent job of showcasing bright talent. I loved the elephant. 🙂
Thank you! I cannot imagine how they create all this beauty using spray paint. I would only make a mess 🙂
