Each year, Belfast attracts a host of international artists who add to the ever-evolving canvas of our city’s streets. We’ve rounded up just a small selection of the street art Belfast has to offer. Discover them on a self-guided walking tour using our map below. Our streets are always changing, so while you’re exploring you might even come across new artworks!
Golden Hares of Rathlin Island
Annatomix’s beautiful geometric hare can be found just off Castle Street, at the entrance to Marquis Street. Though the Irish hare is one of Europe’s rarest animals, some of the largest colonies can be found in Northern Ireland and there’s a group on Rathlin Island, off the north coast of Antrim, with a distinct genetic variation – the ‘golden’ hare.
Using bold, contrasting colours Sabek depicts the conflict between a worm and a crow, which is narrowly missed by a fired arrow. The image stands out against the historic red brick of the wall it’s painted on, with you’ll find on Talbot Street.
Manchester-based Nomad Clan touch on Belfast’s industrial heritage in this piece, which shows a modern young woman face-to-face with a wolf, representing past tensions and an acknowledgment of past and present.
This mural on Bullitt Hotel came from a collaboration with local artist Leo Boyd, Jameson Irish Whiskey and DC Tours. Created in a pop-art style, the colourful artwork is an ode to the artist’s favourite things and is now a stop on DC Tour’s city walking tour. Find it on the external wall of Bullitt facing Jubliee Gardens.
Created by English muralist, Andy Council as part of Hit the North 2022, this piece incorporates a selection of Art Deco buildings that can be found around Belfast. The fish shape was inspired by where castle fish ponds were once located.
Don’t miss this new piece created at Hit the North Street Art Festival – the mural represents a feeling of being overwhelmed by today’s technological world and the desire to switch off your eyes and process fewer things.
