Wall murals, often political, have long been a feature of Northern Ireland streets. The last decade has seen Belfast centre enhanced with a range of sensational street art wall murals transforming many walls and buildings. We have included a selection of these below.
The above images represent only a small sample of the street art of Belfast.
Most of the wall murals/ artwork featured have been commissioned by Seedhead Arts. Seedhead Arts is a Belfast based business providing arts consultancy, event management and training services. Seedhead specialities include festival based programming, Street Art, magic, children’s workshops and creative industries training. The stated goal of Seedhead is to use these skills to build connections and communities; to plant seeds in people’s heads.

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
