Buzzing!

DSCF0698A sign we’ve had some decent weather recently, the pace of work in the city has been frenetic. A recent visitor to Sheffield Rateone, brought a cuddly cyclops with him.DSCF0620Boms and CoLor Art produced this clever collaboration that is  even better in the flesh.

DSCF0614I don’t know who, Krutz perhaps? I like the elephant, blue previously, and the character to the left which is from a computer game, or so I’ve been told.

DSCF0702Xhastexo and Bine, both artists developing rapidly at the moment.

DSCF0744Prone, a favourite of mine, the character on the wall and the man himself.

DSCF0738Emit, another artist going up a notch recently, top stuff.

DSCF0612Coloquix is quietly taking over the city peeping ladies and cats are appearing all over the place.

DSCF0741Lone, on it with a passion this year, good to see.

DSCF0496With some regret the graffiti’d buiding on the Moor, and it would appear that all the boards went with it, have been demolished, it’s a pity nobody thought to save them.

DSCF0653But at least there is new Phlegm work still in progress and appearing in the city, we haven’t lost him to the rest of the world just yet.

 

The French Connection

DSCF9200Kid Acnes’ Art Fags have made a reappearance either side of a rather lush piece by Jan Garet, artist parisian. I do hope there will be more.

DSCF9177Love this piece by Rayna, don’t know much about this artist, which roughly translated, means absolutely nothing, but I do like his style.

DSCF9072Fauna Graphic completed this wonderful portrait of Harry Brearley on the centenary of his invention of rustless steel, later known as stainless steel.

DSCF9088Jaer has made his mark at the citys’ newest spot, I really need to ask him what the E is about.

DSCF9111French Connection part deux, EMA and another  Kid Acne Art Fag with CoLor Arts’ worm playing gooseberry…

DSCF9186Narke’s going green, it suits him too!

DSCF9172A huge EUG from the unstoppable Mr Booms will hopefully brighten the day of many a motorist as they pass.

DSCF8493Jaer Trik9 and Booms did this fantastic collaboration, the owner of the wall is so impressed with it, he’s going to put up more boards for them to paint!

DSCF9192Lastly we have another newcomer, liking these a lot 🙂

Even More!

DSCF7691Xhastexo, man of many talents, has done another of his cheeky little characters.

DSCF7707Mila has been busy too with the fab piece above and the wonderful character below which, is in such a place that a little conversation kept running through my head….’So can you tell me how you managed to break your leg a second time?’…’Well, it was like this…!’ DSCF7748

DSCF7825Oh and CoLor Art painted an octopus on a car, as you do. The owner of the car was very pleased with it.

DSCF7835I’d only been thinking the other week that this wall was due for a  makeover and Lone must have read my mind…

DSCF7834…As indeed had 10 – Yeah him again!

DSCF7847Rayna and Skint have both done pieces in memory of Clem Alice who died earlier this month.DSCF8333

DSCF7828And Mr Eugene is bloomin’ Boomin’!

And that’s not the half of it!!

More Much More

DSCF7666Boms is unstoppable at the moment, constantly pushing the boundaries. Notice the Bine below it as well, looking good.

DSCF7441CoLor, always the innovator created this lovely character, I call him Tanked Up!

DSCF7654He also created this awesome face from 2 foot baths(?) Due to the sunlight  at the time of my visit, I had to make him a visor from poystyrene sheets. I think it worked well.

DSCF7613Nameless Nat as she will be known for the time being, produced her own take on the Disney legend Mickey, her largest piece so far.

DSCF7539I love this Scream piece too, the nameless one definitely has a style of her own.

DSCF7495Emit is moving up a gear, his character pieces are looking really good.

DSCF7533Some is a real wizard with colour, amazing.

DSCF7703Oh and did I mention Mr Angryface has been again, both of him!

Yes we’ve got it all going on at the moment.

It’s becoming a very popular pastime this graffiti hunting lark. Still not sure what I think to wandering around a derelict building and bumping into at least a dozen other people, a sign of the times I suppose.

 

 

 

Keeping up, but only just..

DSCF7240There’s been so much going on in the last few weeks I’ve been struggling to keep up, not that I’m complaining. I love this collaboration with Faunagraphic x CoLor Art x Booms

DSCF7377Not a new piece by Emit but definitely worth a look and there’s not many things I’d go onto a roof to see!

DSCF7180Suek, uses some interesting styles, I particularly like this. I haven’t figured out yet whether he doesn’t paint often or whether I just don’t know his spots.

DSCF7276Bine, a change of style from an up and coming writer, looking good.

DSCF7410Got a chance to visit a paintball establishment http://www.asylumpaintball.co.uk/ where 2 local artists Trik9 and Kisk have done some excellent work. The above piece is by Kisk.

DSCF7414This was one of Trik9s pieces.

DSCF7235A close up of Booms part of the collaboration at the top, a villain from the Batman comic apparently, I don’t know who he is but he’s awesome!

I have quite a backlog of photos to go through, again not complaining, don’t know when me garden’s going to get done though…

 

 

Spring is in the Air, Honest!

DSCF6968

DSCF7004aDSCF6998

As the awful winter staggers on relentlessly, it’s so nice to get out between the snow/ rain etc and find a  bit of something to brighten your day. These wonderful characters are by a new artist on the scene and SHE (Yes it’s a girl!) hasn’t got a writers/artists pseudonym yet. I’m loving these little dudes, there’s already 2 more to collect!

DSCF7178Cheeky little character from Skint, a self portrait I wonder?

DSCF7191A rainbow treat for the eyes this Skint and Sour collaboration makes up for the dull grey misery outside.

DSCF6979 DSCF6992 Xhastexo has produced 2 new mini characters for those brave enough to venture into a certain collapsing needle infested wreck of a building.

DSCF7161Eugene Booms continues to reach new heights, finding the spots where no graffiti artist has gone before.

DSCF7133Espre, a very skilled writer and a fantastic piece. I have to admit, with some embarrassment, that when I first became interested in graffiti/ streetart, I wasn’t really keen on letters pieces, I didn’t get it. I’m still pretty rubbish at reading them, but now I have huge respect for the effort and skill that goes into them.

DSCF7184Another artist new to me, BB I think he is called, really liking the style. Looking forward to seeing more of his work.

I know I’ve said it before, but it really is worth repeating, this city is buzzing and I am so privileged to be able to see so much of it first hand, just hope it keeps on keeping on!

 

Busy Busy Busy

DSCF6790

Despite the lousy weather, the graff scene in Sheffield is buzzing and Mr Booms continues to dominate the city, one wall at a time.

DSCF6753

TCM turned our in force to redecorate the ballcourts; Daso, Dial, Burn, Kory, Kode, Lone and Jaer smashed this wall.

DSCF6235

Mila K and CoLor Art have been busy near the water, the local wildlife don’t seem too impressed, but I love it.

DSCF6222

Mila K has been very busy, he even has his own exhibition.

http://www.facebook.com/events/145767005589726/

DSCF6219

Prone has nearly finished what will be an awesome piece based on Cruella De Ville and the 101 Dalmatians.

DSCF6779

Even Mis Red Art and Kaze  ventured out to paint, first time in a while for both I think, but good to see.

DSCF6792

Rapidly becoming an art form in it’s own right is bad graffiti removal. The ghost of Bloodax lives on!

It’s shaping up nicely to be quite a year for graffiti/street art in this city. Ooo I’m all of a quiver!
