John Lennon Mural and Bedminster Street Graffiti Art 2016 Part 2

Here is part 2/3 of Bedminster Street Graffiti Art that I failed to share with my readers a few years back.  

Unlike most graffiti art that disappears when someone paints over it, this one - Best Thing Since Sliced Bread is actually still there. 
This is not graffiti art, but it is street art - embroidery bird and flowers. 
I like this - Press to Reset the World !
This one is pretty cool too, in fact they all are. 



This one (above) is quite magnificent, but it is hard to appreciate as it had so much detail and so much going on.  



How many of you remember Morph?! 
And finally, John Lennon Mural.  This mural is no longer there, in fact in its place we now have Greta Thunberg. 

This mural is no longer there, as it was painted over this year with the Greta Thunberg Mural that I shared in a previous blog post. 
And here is the John Lennon Mural for perspective.

  1. Wow, these were interesting. I wasn't sure of all of them, like Morph, but visually compelling nonetheless. I hope you are having a nice summer.

  2. Fantastic - thanks for sharing these pictures - such amazing street art makes me want to travel and see places where people are so full of creativity. As I am not so likely to get there I appreciate seeing your photos. And as you say it seems rare for street art to last too long - there has been some really wonderful art near me that is now covered with tagging which makes me sad. But I think John Lennon would be fine with being replaced by Greta Thunberg. Imagine what sort of environmental activist he would be if he was still about. Makes me sad about his untimely death.

  3. Do the artists view their work as transitory, I wonder? Most of these murals represent a huge effort. Of course the impermanence is part of the experience, but it must also be hard to have all that work covered up in a few years, while museums are full of paintings from centuries ago.

    Thanks for the great selection of photos!

  4. Hi Mae. Interesting question, I am afraid i cannot answer fully have not spoken with any of the artist/s, but I am assuming the answer to your question is yes. I guess the impermanence is part and parcel of being a graffiti artist.

  5. Some places have amazing graffiti and I marvel at the skill of those who create it. I was particularly impressed with Belfast which always had a tradition of unionist street art, but it was very political. That tradition seems to have broadened out into a general commentary on the world in many parts of Belfast.
