When it comes to Belfast many know about the paramilitary murals of The Falls and Shankill Road etc which arose out of “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland. Many tourists now come here and pay to take a tour around these murals (most are in economically deprived areas), but its really only a small minority of Northern Ireland residents that actually want these tainted relics of our past to remain. With that in mind, while in Belfast yesterday (unfortunately without my camera), I decided to take a few pictures with my mobile phone to show the other side of street art here. Many of these pieces of graffiti were given the green light by local authorities to brighten up some of the more run down streets in the city. I quite like them.
This is a huge painting on a gable end wall in the Cathedral Quarter of Belfast
