Visual Histories

There are 10 main Visual History pages which present a history of muraling in the north of/Northern Ireland from 1900 to 2009. (An eleventh, covering 2010 onward, is in preparation.)

In addition, there are a number of pages on specific locations (such as Free Derry Corner), themes (such as International Solidarity, Eddie The Head), and painters (such as Bobby Jackson). These are included in the list below alongside the Visual History page where they are first mentioned.

(All pages at this time (2018) are drafts. Comments and corrections are greatly appreciated, to extramuralactivity@gmail.com)
