Every six months or so, i’d head to the Peace Wall in Belfast to have a look at the Street Art and get some photos.
It wasn’t until February last year that I actually visited it for the first time. It just wasn’t something that interested me.
I remember about ten years ago, seeing a documentary on the BBC where Lenny Henry visited Belfast and went to the Peace Wall, and seeing some art, one of which was a mural of Norman Whiteside, which is sadly now gone, that it was in the back of my mind that there would be Street Art to be found there.
So, about eighteen months ago, I got curious and decided to visit. Personally, I didn’t think much of the Street Art, I didn’t think it was that good, especially when people were defacing it by scribbling their own messages over the art.
If I was advising tourists looking to explore Street Art in Belfast, i’d direct them to North Street and Royal Mail’s car park.
Despite that, I visited recently and saw some good pieces. Enjoy. Hopefully, when I visit again in February 2016, there’ll be some more Street Art to photograph.
