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!
