A new mural to add to Belfast’s wallspace. It’s actually been up for a few weeks, but i’ve only got a chance to phorograph it now.
It is in Smithfield, near to Smithfield Market, but still a bit of a walk away from it. It depicts old life in Smithfield Market.
It is a collaboration between Kev Largey and Jonny McKerr, whose work has previously featured on this blog.
The reason why i only got round to photographing it now was because there were cars always parked in front of it when I went to get photos. A pain in the arse for anyone who likes to photograph Street Art.
There’s not a lot of people around on Sunday mornings, so I made the most of it.
If you’re looking for an exact address, it is on Gresham Street, beside a pub that was known as The Hudson but is now known as Peaky Blinders. Apparantly, it’s a popular TV show.
I’ll let you in on a secret, pubs in Belfast or popular TV shows aren’t a specialist subject of mine.
If that address sounds familiar, that’s because it was previously home to a mural of David Bowie, which was painted a few weeks after he died in January 2016.
That mural of Bowie is now gone.
