EAST BELFAST STREET ART – JUNE 2019

AKA, Tower Street Art, a post that took two weeks.

They can’t seem to keep their paintbrushes down in East Belfast, following on from the mural along the Connswater Greenway in April.

A new spot this, and i’m frustrated that I missed this live at the start of the month.

The former BIFHE campus in Tower Street has now become an arts hub, known as Vault Studios.

If you’re looking to find it, there is still a signpost for a Belfast Metropolitan College (which BIFHE later became known as) campus if you are driving to the City Centre from East Belfast.

If you aren’t good with street signs, just keep an eye out for the Linenopolis mural painted last year, you can’t miss it.

At the beginning of June, there was an event held there called Vault Fringe, and part of it was live Street Art painting.

So, I decided to head down the following week to have a look, making a cameraless trip to check it out.

Impressed with what I saw, I returned on the Friday to get some photos.

To my frustration, one of the pieces, a series of hearts had a food van parked in front of it, so I had to go back and get photos of that at a later date.

I was starting to worry that it was going to be a repeat of the time I took two months to get a picture of a Linfield mural in 2011 because there was always a car parked in front of it when I went to get a photo.

Eventually, two weeks later, the food van moved so I made my move to get the final piece, a series of hearts, the best piece of all.

I got drenched cycling home, but it was worth it.

You may recognise some of the artists, who have featured regularly on this blog.
