PUBLIC ART IN BELFAST CITY

PUBLIC ART IN BELFAST INCLUDING STATUES AND MONUMENTS AS WELL AS SCULPTURE

WEIGHTS 2000

BY MIKE HOGG

Every time I am in Belfast I take a walk along the Lagan Towpath because I really like it. However it does appear to suffer from a high level of anti-social activity and often the street furniture and public art installations [especially ‘Weights 2000’ by Mike Hogg] show signs of unnecessary and unsightly damage and destruction.

JOHN RINTY MONAGHAN

WHEN IRISH EYES ARE SMILING

John Joseph "Rinty" Monaghan (21 August 1918 – 3 March 1984) was a world flyweight boxing champion from Belfast. He became famous in the post-war period, eventually rising to become undisputed world champion and a hero to many people in his home city of Belfast.

BOTTLE TOP 2000

BY MIKE HOGG

CROMAC SPRING WATER is the legend [not shown in this image] on this bottle top and the artist may be playing with words and memories because there was a bakery [rather than a spring water business] on Cromac Street known as McWatters.

INDUSTRIAL HOMAGE

BY NED JACKSON SMYTH

Strand Spinning Mill continued to operate as a successful mill for many years, however the steady decline of the UK textile industry forced the mill to close at the end of 1983. The mill was reinvigorated during the 1980's as Portview Trade Centre, providing useable workspaces for small businesses.

MY MAIN CAMERA

SONY a7RIV

The camera has a full-frame 61MP BSI-CMOS sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range. Personally I find it to be much better than my A7RIII
