The Amazing Outdoor Art of Waterford, Ireland

Waterford Walls - Grafitti in Ireland

How many graffiti artists do you know? I think most of us can name, at most, one - and that 'one' is probably Banksy. But the wonderful world of public art has moved on since the satirical street artist's heyday, and over the years we've seen a bloom of new names in the world of public art. 

I have family in Ireland, so I visit the country regularly. On my last visit, I took a trip into the city of Waterford (which is apparently the country's oldest city). Having been here several times before, I wasn't expecting anything exciting. But then something magical caught my eye - the walls of the city were covered in breathtaking art.

I later found out that this was part of Waterford Walls, an International Street Art festival which turned the city into an open-air gallery. Artists have come from all over the world - Argentina, Spain, Canada and more - as well as locally, to transform this urban landscape into something really mesmorising. It really gives you a good reason to explore the entire city.

Take a look through the photos I snapped, and let me know which piece of art is your favourite!
