street art in belfast is fascinating and I would like to know, whether some of these artists also create small works of art to be bought for my home, on wood/metal/etc.? I am very interested and if there are smaller pieces available, I would visit and discuss directly, plus enjoy the belfast tour. Can you assist me?
Thank you very much
