After a little detective work, we set off for a location where I had figured Phlegm had done a new piece. As we were trudging towards the place we saw this lot. Now urbex and graffiti hunting attracts all sorts, but zombies, that was new.
Below is a preview of the horror trilogy they were making.
Anyway as zombies go, these were quite friendly and allowed us to have a nosy round as long as we stayed away from the movie cameras. The piece below was the one we’d come to see, but there was another surprise instore for us, a very bemused artist called Phlegm!
Phlegm was working on another piece at this site and he wasn’t having a good day. Phlegm prefers to paint in solitude but this day he’d got us, a couple of other guys that were ‘helping’ and about fifty zombies and a film crew. As we were talking they were staggering through the door.
It was quite bizarre watching zombies photographing graffiti. We left Phlegm to it after about 10 minutes and had a wander around the rest of the site.
There was another Phlegm creation too that we hadn’t known about.
Other artists had been at work here as well, one who had definitely been busy was Clem Alice.
His surreal creations were all over the place.
Phlegm had had the two guys mulshing a wall in preparation and was mortified when I pointed out that the spider they had painted over was one of Clem Alices. But I’m pretty sure Clem Alice forgave him.
There were other pieces there by local artists and writers. This was a particular favourite by Kest.
We had a bit of wander around but between being in Phlegms way and being in fear of eaten alive by zombies we decided to call it a day and come back when it was a bit less lively – or undeadly depending on your view.
