Northern Quarter Highlights
Some of the best street art from around Manchester's Northern Quarter.
About Street Art NQ
The Northern Quarter in the heart of Manchester is a buzzing neighbourhood of independent bars, cafés and shops. Just off Piccadilly Gardens, the Northern Quarter is a centre of alternative and bohemian culture.
Street Art NQ is the sister site of Street Art Sheffield. I launched Street Art Sheffield back in 2014 to celebrate and map out my city's vibrant street art scene. With Manchester just the other side of the Pennine's from Sheffield, I regularly visit and have long enjoyed the Northern Quarter for it's street art and graffiti. So it made sense to create Street Art NQ as a means of sharing some of my finds from within the quarter and beyond.
Manchester's Northern Quarter offers some truely amazing street art; from large scale wall murals to smaller pieces hidden down back streets. It attracts artists from across the world to contribute to the street art scene here; this includes the likes of Pichiavo, Invader, Phlegm and the Nomad Clan.
The aim of this website is to map the best grafitti, wall murals and specially commissioned works that I find on my visits to Manchester. I hope this site inspires others to visit the Northern Quarter in search of some world class street art.
