Manchester Graffiti and local mosaics.

July 28, 2012

I spent a half day yesterday soaking up the warm sun and Manchester street art. Some excellent graffiti and mosaics hidden around the streets and alley ways as usual. These were around the Northern Quarter, the more edgy, yet arty side of the city.

These fabulous mosaics above Pop cafe and boutique on Oldham street, that I must have walked past a few times and not stopped to look at. With my 1960’s obsession with kid’s books, the spaceman on the moon one is my No 1 choice.

Afflecks’ Palace or more recently just Afflecks has some lovely work on the side of its building and some celebrity and celebratory mosaics of a Mancunian flavour. Coronation Street characters, Factory Records and Manchester United are all captured on its walls.

Even Banksy has been getting into the Olympic spirit of things according to the Daily Mail Online site with this graffiti in London.
