Public Art in the City

I remember about 10 years ago during a trip to Melbourne, Australia, it was very obvious that the City was covered in street art. As a tourist I recognised just how much they added to the sights to see and visit, and I commented on how great it would be for Belfast to embrace this concept.
So here I am 10 years later, and hey, 10 years older, and I come across this Belfast City Council webpage entirely devoted to the Street Art which has sprung up in recent years in all corners of Belfast.
Have a look at the site and see how many of these pieces of art you recognise and just how many you have never even noticed before. Then get out onto the streets to find them. Actually, is there a street art map about, does it even exist? Now there’s a new tour to create!
