Manchester, Art, Graffiti and New Exploration.

December 11, 2010

Yesterday I had an hour in Manchester going spare before a meeting. I decided to explore

some of the side streets and alleyways that I’d never been down, with a few pleasant

surprises. Amazing graffiti and beautiful ceramic gallery spaces and New York style

fire escapes, all leapt out at me and said ‘Here I am, where have you been all of this time ?’.

Here’s some of my findings. Beginning with architectural animals and fashionable felines.

Great graffiti and placid packmen.

And I loved this Bear and Wolf break in.

It’s amazing to discover what’s around us, when we chance to look in a different direction,

or at least, above our usual eye level.

    Wow, your keen eye spotted a few gems of urban graffiti. Wish more of it was this creative.

      Yes I agree there is some amazing art which really shines out against the gritty and more urban name tagging that we see so often on walls and buildings. Quite refreshing to see illustrations of this quality.

      I’ve no idea to it’s history. I assume not as the ones on those cubicles do seem to change and get painted fairly often. I think it’s more of a space that artists except as a canvass to show their ideas.
