Hit The North
Supported by Seedhead Arts, Becks Bekreative & Belfast Culture Night.
A nod to Belfast's ship building heritage, its linen and its rope industry. The wolf is on Belfast's shield, wolves were once an integral part of the Irish countryside and culture. The stance between the wolf & modern young woman is a subtle reference to the tensions during the troubles, a retrospective look & acknowledgement of past and present. Her proud heritage is reflected in a neck tattoo .
We often use androgynous characters in our murals, this time it was a specific move to represent a queer female in a place thats banned gay marriage & struggles with women's rights.
