MANCHESTER STREET ART – JANUARY 2020

I recently headed over to Manchester to see United take on Burnley. The less said about that match the better.

On the plus side, I did get to see some decent Street Art.

A veteran of visiting Manchester, I know my way about and where to find Street Art. However, I did get a pleasant surprise.

When I make my own way to a United match, I usually stay at Salford Quays. However, this time, I was staying just off Oxford Road.

That meant, I would get a train from Manchester Airport to Piccadilly instead of a tram to Salford Quays.

Just before arriving in Piccadilly, I noticed some Street Art that got my attention, so I decided to investigate more.

It was a mural in part of a new development called Mayfield, and a mural has been commissioned to commemorate the history of the area, and the work of Thomas Hoyle.

As I was staying in the University Area, I discovered some pieces when walking to my hotel, such as a mural which said “GOOD LIFE” and a mural of bees buzzing around a rainbow outside The New Union Hotel.

I went in search of Street Art in the Northern Quarter, spotting a piece of Top Cat, just like there is one in Lisburn.

However, the Street Art in Stevenson Square is the same as on my last visit in November, so I didn’t bother documenting that.

On the Wednesday, I got some more photos on pieces I stumbled on, such as when I explored through Great Northern. I also by fluke stumbled upon the mural of Ariana Grande.

Funnily enough, I remember the news coverage at the time and made a mental note to go and see it, but I forgot, so this was a happy fluke.

Thursday was a mop-up day, getting pieces in Tib Street and Thomas Street for completeness.
