The Dublin-bound star shared an image of the Chatham Row mural with her 1.2million followers.
A brand new mural has popped up on the corner of Chatham Row and South William Street overnight, depicting groundbreaking star Lizzo. While the artwork has yet to be fully completed, it's already found plenty of fans on Twitter – and has now come to the attention of Lizzo herself.
WAIT... OMG 🙈😍😳🤯 https://t.co/4P6eRAAtSG

Street artist and graphic designer Emma Blake is the creative mind behind the piece. She's also responsible for the recently unveiled mural of Derry Girls' Sister Michael at The Bernard Shaw – depicting Siobhán McSweeney's iconic character unimpressed with yet another cultural space closing down to make room for hotels.
Actual Lizzo losing her shit over the amazing not-even-finished-yet @emmaleneblake mural of her. Im going to pretend that this makes me at least 37 degrees closer to her 🤪😍 Jeepers isnt life mad altogether https://t.co/tHrZJ0OhAr pic.twitter.com/uAj4WmtXtT

Lizzo's mural arrives just days before the American artist lands in Dublin for her sold-out gig at The Olympia Theatre on Sunday, November 10. The release of Lizzo's third studio album, Cuz I Love You, earlier this year saw her career skyrocket – and was described by Brooke Weber in Hot Press as "a playful, confident, radical endorsement of self-love and emotional vulnerability."
