The Prestwich Arts Festival murals

Beginning in 2018 with a portrait of The Fall's Mark E Smith, followed swiftly by local legend Victoria Wood in 2019, and now our biggest piece yet featuring Prestwich past and present has been completed in 2021.


The Prestwich Arts Festival murals have become firm favourites with locals and visitors alike and are bringing the streets of Prestwich to life. We've even featured in The Guardian and Pitchfork! The portraits are by friend of the festival Akse P-19. The Prestwich past and present mural is by street artists kELzO and Evan Barlow. 

You can find the Mark E Smith mural on the side of the award winning local chippy, Chips @No.8. Victoria Wood is on the side of Sword and Sparrow Tattoo, Bury Old Road.  kELzO's Prestwich mural is on the side of Prestwich News Agents on Poppythorn Lane.
