SPOCK’S TEENAGE DREAMS

Two new pieces of Street Art have appeared in Belfast in recent weeks at opposite ends of the city, one in the East and one in the West.

In West Belfast, in one of the streets facing the Kennedy Centre, there is a mural of Leonard Nimoy, who died recently, in his famous guise as Spock from Star Trek, but in a Hip-Hop style.

In the East of the city, there is a resurrection of an old favourite, as the Teenage Dreams mural, painted as a tribute to John Peel, which was removed in 2013 to accommodate renovation work.

However, as reported on Newsline last night, the new work has no mention of John Peel. You may also notice it has a different colour scheme from the original.

Of course, if you’re in Belfast and want to see a tribute to John Peel. You can always find one in the Cathedral Quarter.
