You may remember in March last year, a piece about a mural in progress in East Belfast, where the Eastside Visitor Centre is.
It is a collage of famous people and landmarks associated with East Belfast. A full list of those featuring on the wall can be found here.
Back then, it was a building site. When I wrote the original blog, I promised I would update you when the building work was completed. So, just over a year later, it is now a garden that people can enjoy, relax, and most importantly, get closer to the mural if you want to get a photo of it.
You can also get a bite to eat while doing so, at Pot Kettle Black, which opened a few weeks ago.
The group East Belfast Partnership has been behind this. They posted a then and now of the area on their Twitter page.
If you’re into Street Art in East Belfast, keep an eye out on Pansy Street for the mural of CS Lewis to be repainted. There is no confirmed date for that yet.
That was covered in a previous blog, looking at some new pieces that appeared in East Belfast in March 2018.
And fingers crossed that Hit The East will return in August after debuting in 2017.
Photographed from late 2017 until April 2018, here’s a look at how a mural that was obstructed to the public became the focal point of a garden that locals and visitors to East Belfast can visit as part of the Connswater Greenway.
