Cities of Hope, Street Art, Manchester - May 2016

Street artists gathered in Manchester the last week of May, the aim to highlight social injustice.

Whilst I didn't track them all down, I gave it a good go in my old stomping ground of Ancoats an the Northern Quarter.

First off we have Dale Grimshaw, a local artist, I first saw his work at the the ghost ship known as the Duke of Lancaster and his art is always colourful and stunningly good.
