This is the last of my collection of this years graffiti photographed on Manchester’s New Wakefield Street. It was painted by SatOne and Dems with a limited pallet of orange and blues with cars flying everywhere. I would one day like to watch such a large piece of work being created from start to finish as I imagine it must take many hours if not days to create a piece as large as the one photographed above.
Found in Steveson Square in the Northern Quarter of Manchester this street art is painted on the shutters of a shop / stall called American Graffiti which is part of Afflecks (formerly Affleck’s Palace), an indoor market with dozens of independent stalls, small shops and boutiques like the one pictured above. Afflecks is a great place for young fashionable alternative clothing and accessories.
Found on a large wooden doorway on New Wakefield Street this street art / graffiti was created for the Eurocultured Street Festival in 2011 by Turkesa, a Spainish artist and tattooist. A photograph of the small size you can see on screen above really can’t do this portrait justice. The level of detail in the paint work and textures are amazing. If you would like to see more work by this artist I encourage you to visit her Flickr galleries.
New Wakefield Street in Manchester is just around the corner from where I used to live. Every year the professional and always very colourful graffiti gets changed, so this year I was pleased to find myself back in my old neighbourhood with its fresh new paint job. Here we see “The Make Up Club” of characters. I am not sure which street artist created this piece, but I am sure that I like it a lot. In fact in my opinion it is one of the better artworks that I have seen in Manchester.
