STREET ART NEAR THE HILTON HOTEL

STREET ART BESIDE THE HILTON HOTEL

I wanted to find some street art not related to the political situation but did not have much luck so I am assuming that I went to the wrong locations. However on my way Central Railway Station (right beside the Hilton) I came across a wall featuring something of interest.

Murals in Northern Ireland have become symbols of Northern Ireland, depicting the region's past and present divisions
Northern Ireland contains arguably the most famous political murals. Almost 2,000 murals have been documented in Northern Ireland since the 1970s. The murals more often than not represent one side's political point of view.

Not all murals in Northern Ireland are political or religious in nature, with some commemorating events such as the Great Irish Famine (1845–1849), and other moments in Irish history. Many portray events from Irish mythology, though images from Irish myths are often incorporated into political murals. A few murals avoid the subject of Ireland altogether, instead focusing on such neutral subjects as litter prevention.
