Faunagraphic’s beautiful large mural of a Blue Tit on Newton Street was commissioned by Converse 10 years ago. It has become one of the most iconic murals in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, and photographed by many.
Today marks the first anniversary of Street Art NQ. We launched on the 12th May last year as the new sister site to Street Art Sheffield. We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone that has supported this site so far.
Wandering around the streets of Manchester (back when life was normal) you’re bound to have passed one of Qubek’s colourful artworks. For example, numerous pieces of his graffiti and commissioned murals, for which he goes by the name of Mural Life, can be found in the Northern Quarter.
So far, 2020 has been an annus horribilis. The first couple of months were marred by bad weather, particularly storms Ciara, Dennis and Jorge. Then the on-going Corvid-19 pandemic hit us hard, leading to the current lockdown. Unfortunately, this has all had an impact on Street Art NQ being updated.
