The Netflix program ‘Stranger Things’ hit a sweet note for many viewers. Not just the youth of today who consume a lot of their entertainment on Netflix, but also many older graffiti writers who had their golden years in the ’80s and ’90s, the time period (and soon after) that the program used as its setting. The Northern Irish graffiti scene also shared some golden years in the late ’80s and early ’90s, including one historical city graffiti spot that flourished during this period that was in much need of a new coat of paint. Within that recipe and idea was born and now in 2019, the ‘Stranger Kings’ mural came into existence.

Stranger Kings

A Northern Irish graffiti homage

The two major local crews TDS and FAK came together to make the magic happen in the cities East. The wall which is affectionately known as ‘The walkway’ is situated on an old train line which now enjoys a much more relaxed job as bike path.

The rare Northern Irish blue sky played host to the painting and the Montana BLACK and Montana GOLD cans were left in peace to do their job on the color. With many images and symbols derived from the program, the mural took shape into a reflection of current and past popular culture.
