I was recently in Manchester, primarily to take in two games at Old Trafford, but while I was there, I managed to get some Street Art photographs.
As a relatively regular visitor to Manchester, I have a good idea where to go when it comes to finding Street Art.
Naturally, as I arrived in the City Centre, I headed to the Northern Quarter. I had a piece in mind, as a Prince mural was painted since my last visit in May, but that has sadly been painted over by a mural of Shaft.
The mural of David Bowie in the Northern Quarter is still there.
As I kept walking around the Northern Quarter, I kept on finding and discovering new pieces.
When I was about to head to Salford Quays (That will be on a seperate blog), I discovered a Car Park close to Cornbrook Metrolink Station with a mural of Muhammad Ali on a wall.
I had hoped to check out Antwerp Mansion while I was there, but it was closed whenever I headed there on Friday afternoon.
Curiously, there were murals of Alan Turing and Emmeline Pankhurst at a stall selling mulled wine at the Christmas Market. Pankhurst was born in Manchester while Turing lived and worked in the city.
I also spotted some pieces in Oxford Road, not sure of the street or area but close to Band On The Wall, and beside Afflek’s.
