Euroculture: Street Art on New Wakefield Street, Manchester

These murals on New Wakefield Street under the railway viaduct near Oxford Road station were created as part of a Eurocutural Festival held in June 2012. Only these two and a bit seem to have survived. The planned 2013 festival was apparently cancelled.

A search for New Wakefield Street on Chrissy Brand's Mancunian Wave blog turns up several examples of lost art and information about the event.

A contribution to Monday Murals.


  1. You've got to love that whale! Thanks for the plug Gerald ;-)

  2. A shame that they are disappearing!

  3. This mural appears to be complex and quite intricate. Pity all the contributions have not survived. Wonder why this year's competition was cancelled? Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
