YORKGATE STREET ART

Spotted this when I looked out the window as I got the train to Carrick on Monday night, I made a note to go and see it the following weekend, a mural as you approach Yorkgate Shopping Centre from Belfast City Centre.

It’s obvious looking at it who it is by due to the style of painting, but a post on Instagram confirms it is by Friz.

I presume, it is a mural of Denise Weston Austin, one of North Belfast’s more curious residents, known as the Elephant Angel, who had an elephant from Belfast Zoo come home with her in the evenings.

You can read more about her here.

Phototaking wise, you are better taking photos from across the road to capture the mural in full.
