SJ8498 : Manchester, Thomas Street

Manchester, Thomas Street
Manchester, Thomas Street
The two end gables at the corner of Thomas Street and High Street regularly feature murals (eg SJ8498 : Protect Our Wyldlife and SJ8498 : London Coronavirus Nurse in Manchester). Recently, these murals seem to have been changed more frequently as their advertising potential has been realised. Because murals are often seen as street art, they are one of the few advertising formats that consumers are likely to actively photograph and share on social media so that they are likely to be seen by a much wider audience than just those who pass their locations.

The previous week, the wall of 31 Thomas Street had been decorated with a mural of Manchester City footballer Phil Foden advertising EA Sports™ FIFA 21 game (SJ8498 : Win as One - Football Mural). This week, it features Manchester United and England footballer Marcus Rashford MBE advertising the Burberry fashion brand. The mural is by British collage artist Jazz Grant and features overlaying childhood and contemporary images of Rashford, with splashes of the classic Burberry check. The mural was uncovered on December 17th and will remain in the space until January 4th, 2021.
