When you hear that there is mural in Belfast of a guy called George, you immediately think it will be of George Best. However, this one is of George Kyriacos Panayiotou, better known to you and me as George Michael, who died on Christmas Day last year.
This one is in Botanic, in India Street. Does that address sound familiar? That’s because, last month, I posted that a mural of Prince appeared there. This mural of George Michael is right beside Prince. The mural of Prince has since had a purple background added to it since I blogged about it.
The image is of the cover of his 1996 album Older.
The painting is by an artist called Glen Molloy. You probably guessed that from the fact is name is beside the George Michael.
He has his own Facebook page. You can like it here.
