CODE Does…Northern Quarter Graffiti Art

 As a Manchester based brand we have so much love for the area. Manchester truly is a place like no other, it has community spirit, a rich culture and is an area full of art and beauty.

As you will most likely know, Manchester was recently hit by an unimaginable tragedy. The city is in mourning for the victims and will be for a long time, but at the same time the community’s strength and refusal to be divided is inspiring many. We wanted to give you a little artistic inspiration to come and visit...

Manchester’s Northern Quarter is one of the city’s most vibrant areas and one of the things this cultural hub is most famous for most famous for is its stunning street art. We thought we would celebrate Manchester by taking a little look at what Northern Quarter graffiti artists have to offer.

Manchester is certainly a place for music lovers, whatever genre you’re into. Upcoming artist Aske P19 pays tribute to Prince with this stunning portrait on Tib Street.

The artist behind these quirky goonies mural on the Outhouse, Qubek, caused a stir when he painted over French artist Aske’s iconic David Bowie mural. As a nod to the Bowie design, Qubek added a lightning bolt to his creation.

Qubek decided however to repaint over the Outhouse yet again with this beautiful Manchester inspired mural, as a way honouring the victims of the recent tragedy. The worker bee motif was originally adopted to represent the hard work of Mancunions during the Industrial Revolution.
