Haven’t been to East Belfast for a while, but headed there today to get some photos of a new mural which appeared on the Newtownards Road, painted by Hicks 54, done as part of the East Belfast Arts Festival.
Managed to get some shots of it. Unfortunately, the area around it is cordoned off, so I had to take long range shots of it.
Near there, there’s a pathway that leads onto Mersey Street which has song excellent art on it. Unfortunately, it’s quite narrow, so you can’t get as much back leverage as you wish to get photos.
In other words, advance apologies for the poor quality of the composition of the photos.
Since the post was published, a received a Tweet explaining why the area around the mural was cordoned off. Some good news for East Belfast
@andrewastewart …nice post. The reason the area’s cordoned off is cause they’re creating a park in front of he mural.
