Liverpool is a city overflowing with art and culture and street art is becoming a huge part of our city’s landscape. In all corners of the city artworks large and small are popping up on the sides of buildings using all sorts of themes for inspiration. 

From The Beatles, Liverpool’s famous Liver Birds, football and avocados, there are so many murals round the city that you could spend the day trying to find them. Some of them are also pretty famous too and have even had Royal visits!

See which ones you can find and get those photos for the collection!


PAUL CURTIS - LIVER BIRD WINGS

SILENT BILL - STOLEN BANKSY

NOMAD CLAN - TEMPEST BUILDING

The Tempest Building on Tithebarn Street is adorned with a mural created by an all-female crew, Nomad Clan. The painting symbolises the struggles and growth of start up business in the city and adds a pop of colour to the building.

Controversial new artwork suddenly gone up covering whole wall of old skateboard park #liverpoolbaltictriangle One of the most popular and vibrant places for street artists displaying their talent, +work constantly changing here.Put up by a team over a couple of days it's a Netflix advertisement for the series One Planet.Most people love it,the colours are fab and the whole parks been cleared of rubbish at the time of painting so skaters are coming back.Artists understandably don't like the ethic of freedom it's taken away from the streetart vibe and everyone's wondering who's gonna be the first to tag this 🙄👀😁👍 #liverpoolstreetart #jamaicastreet #newworks #skateboardpark #newbirdstreet #itsart #streetarteverywhere #streetartuk #streetartutopia #flyingflamingoes #flockofflamingoes @baltictriangle
