I first noticed Mexico ‘85’s work on my first street art hunt around the Northern Quarter. Crows, Leafs and Squirrels were dotted all around the NQ, all with his distinctive tag. He’s also responsible for a bunch of graffiti work, as exemplified by his Sunshine Studio shutter design.
You can find more of his work over his tumblr site.
Mancsy is a Manchester based street artist who, once a month, goes around the Northern Quarter and sticks up a limited edition print of his own design. Printed in black and yellow and all (as far I’m aware) featuring The Manchester Bee, they designed normally tie in with current events - The print featured below was photographed on the Queens Diamond Jubilee weekend, for example.
I found these little aliens guys on both Cambridge Street and Great Marlborough Street near Hotspur House. No details on the artist but I do like they strange unusual design.
I found this curious graffiti link sprayed onto the wall outside MMU’s Holden Gallery. But it was only while adding the above photograph to the Oxford Road Street Art collection that I that checked where it might lead to. And what did I find? Daniel Johnston’s True Love will Find you in the End. Lovely.
