  3. Liverpool's most iconic street art

Liverpool's most iconic street art

Condemned in the past, there has been a clear cultural shift in attitudes towards street art in recent years, thanks in no small part to the elusive Bristolian street artist, Banksy.

Today, street art is seen as an exciting (and growing) expression, and can be found in many world-class cities from Paris to New York. Not to mention Liverpool.

The city has long been a hotbed for artists wielding spray cans and stencils. There are even tours dedicated to it. So we thought we’d take a look at some of the street art pieces that are, quite literally, making their mark on the city.

Al Pacino portrait - Hill Street

Al Pacino portrait

This stunning portrait of Al Pacino can be found at the top of Hill Street, in the Baltic Triangle neighbourhood of the city. It was created by Manchester-based French artist Akse during the Liverpool Street Art Festival, which aimed to turn the Baltic Triangle into an ‘outdoor gallery’.

Beatles Mural - Litherland

Beatles Mural

This iconic mural can be found on the side of a terraced house in Croxteth Avenue, Litherland. It was created in 2008 by Belfast Loyalist Mark Ervine and Republican Danny Devenny, who joined forces to paint the mural in celebration of the Riverside Housing Group’s 80th birthday.

Love Plane - Rumford Street Car Park

Banksy artwork

The 15-foot tall painting of a monochrome biplane with a heart-shaped smoke trail, dubbed the ‘Love Plane’, can be found on the side of Norwich House next to Rumford Street car park, opposite the Liverpool War Museum.

A plexiglass sheet was later added to protect the artwork after it was defaced, and a Banksy-style rat with a message saying ‘Never liked this Banksy’ later appeared at the bottom of the wall.

Unknown - Walton

Whoam Irony street art

One of the most recent additions to Liverpool’s street art scene, this mural of a woman with multicoloured hair can be found on the former Ethel Austin building in County Road, Walton. It was created by street artist Whoam Irony and commissioned by the Liverpool Street Artist Festival as part of a project to rejuvenate the area.

These are just some of the incredible pieces of street art that can be found in Liverpool. Have we missed any? What’s are your favourite spray paint hot spots?

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
