Prince Street Art in Manchester, England

I was in the city centre briefly this afternoon too, but not at the Northern Quarter. So, I completely missed seeing this being painted.



This is the artist, looking like he's cooking meth. lol



More info about the artist, on his Twitter:

Wow, that looks great.

There used to be a Prince mural on my way to work, done by an English artist, but unfortunately it is no longer there. It looked great, like a cartoonish version of the Purple Rain 12" single. The only thing that looked wrong was the Uzi.

It should be the law, that there's at least one piece of Prince street art in every city in the world. smile

I used to see this EVERY morning on my way to work while riding my bicycle.

Unfortunately some idiots destroyed it and now it´s gone. There is a Bugs Bunny graffiti now.

Kind of strange that a Warner Bros. cartoon character would replace him. neutral

I don't know how long it'll last. There's a David Bowie one around the corner too, and that's been there for months now.
