Epic as always.  DSCF2460Jd Arts (Kame), I do love these, brilliant work. DSCF2479Brayk, diverse as always, and quite busy as of late.DSCF2486Dese, been busy at this place, this one’s my favourite though.DSCF2494Rateone, wouldn’t like to spend time in his head!  😉DSCF2605Cres….. This is probably the first time that Cres has featured on this blog , I’m not a great fan of most of his work but this is impressive. What a spot!DSCF2650 StitchOgosh x Alas x Skint x Syke, hopefully not the last collaboration on this wall. DSCF2661Casper maybe?, but particularly liking the BilsDSCF2686Mist1 , old school legend and a bit of a comedian! 🙂DSCF2747 StitchBurn x Kode, brightening car parks in the city, but unfortunately often a pain to photograph because people keep parking cars in front of them…DSCF2761Prone. Saw the man himself in the middle of painting this, he said I’d like it, he was wrong, I think it’s fantastic 😀  DSCF2778Bint and Tekonta Secta walked into a bar……… I’m sure there’s a joke in there somewhere, but anyway, great to see them in one of our more salubrious hostelries.

I’d been thinking things were a bit quiet in Sheffield, but if you have a good look around, it’s as busy as ever, thankfully, don’t want my garden too tidy do I?

So Birmingham, it’s worth a visit, seriously.

Street Fusion, Brink,Kenilworth, May 11th

 

 

Managed to bag a lift with some Sheffield chaps in a car with a wankel engine and off we went to Kenilworth.

DSCF9225It should be standard at these events that the name of the artist is written on the wall where they are to paint, so that I know who they are, I was very pleased. Tim at Brink Contemporary Arts is very good at this kind of thing, organising a cracking event and making people happy.

DSCF9446Good to see Kilo Sinstars Fba in action last time I saw him was at a jam in Sheffield last year.

DSCF9524Steve Edwards lovely guy with a distinctive style, nice to put a face to a name.

DSCF9586Binty Bint wore the smartest and most co-ordinated outfit on the day really nice to see her do her stuff. Camz and Moe. new to me, did 2 great pieces and I will be looking out for them in the future. Oh, and yes we had the odd spell of rain.

DSCF9606Tokes, Rascal, Apps, Reas, Kilo, Skema, Hush, Crom, Title and Vomit, what a wall. awesome.

DSCF9622Hush, Crom, Title and Vomit, bit more of a close up.

DSCF9527Crysp, good to see him again, missed his lovely lady though.

DSCF9588Tokes, Rascal, Apps and Reas, stunning, running out of words for how good the quality was, but trust me it was good.

DSCF9632The Sheffield posse of CoLor Art, Duse and Pawski pulled off 2 stunners on the day.

DSCF9629Simon75 worked on this cube concept that was sadly not finished by the time we left, the weather and the fact that he had to build the boxes first probably didn’t help, looked really cool though.

DSCF9619This piece by Sed was looking great  and I think it was nearly done as we left.

DSCF9481There were also live acts on throughout the day, they’ve got some real talent round them parts.

DSCF9597All in all it was a fantastic day, that the weather didn’t spoil. Went to Kenilworth with some great people I am proud to call friends and hopefully made quite a few more while I was there. Tim was an absolute star as always, can’t wait to see what he organises next!
