New murals installed across the Linen Quarter

As part of Hit The North Street Art Festival, a new mural has been installed in the Linen Quarter by the Dutch street art collective Studio Giftig, who were crowned Best Street Artists 2022. The 12m high photo realistic artwork at James St South pays homage to the Linen Quarter with references to Linen and flax plants. Commissioned by the BID, the welcome addition will add a touch of vibrancy and colour to the district.

Another new addition that has arrived in Linen Quarter as part of Hit The North Festival is a new mural installed on the back wall behind Trademarket on Dublin Road. The brightly coloured mural has been painted by Aberdeen street artist KMG and is intended to add visual interest to the vibrant street scene of Dublin Road. This work was co-funded by the BID.
