Return To The Lego Factory

DSCF0841Had a lovely day out with two friends at one of my favourite urbex/graff spots.The first time I came here it was a cold grey November day and I was on crutches. This time the weather was glorious and I was running round like a spring chicken, well almost! It was great to see that much has changed since my last trip. I’ll apologise in advance for not knowing who most of the artists are. P.S. I have since been informed that the piece above is by Harriet AKA Ruby – Thank you! 🙂DSCF0843I know who these are though an unexpected sight this piece from Sico and Nymph.DSCF0851Eject Ep, love this character. DSCF0857Kombo (?) very colourful whoeverit is. DSCF0898 StitchInteresting combination of the old and the new.DSCF0946 StitchUKS, I’m a big fan of their work, was chuffed to see this here.DSCF0955Really like this. DSCF1038 StitchLove the pigeon, I’m sure I’ve seen his brother in Leeds.DSCF1044 StitchLike the colours in this, although the yellow one looks a bit out of place.DSCF1053Found the remains of an old piece that was inaccessible to me when I was on crutches.DSCF0881Another eye-popper.DSCF0994Lurking in quiet spot, I found this gorgeous painted Painted Dog, by CoLor, I wonder how that got there…DSCF0970Unfortunately I did manage to upset some of the locals, Mr and Mrs Swallow couldn’t wait for us to leave. Apparently, they thought we were a bad influence on the kids. I’m sure we’ll be back at some point, hope they’ll be pleased to see us then  😉

 

Brickworks/ Graffiti Works

DSCF2622

One of my favourite parts of my graffiti obsession is the sheer buzz that I get from it, the thrill of discovery, it’s new to me even if half the world has already seen it. To find just one piece can get me giddy, this place however, blew my mind. I have never seen so much graffiti in one place, it was everywhere. Some was definitely old, some definitely not, every style imaginable, I was like a kid in a sweet shop.

Imer, Leeds based I think, was one of the few artists I recognised.

This vast derelict brickworks was in places a little bit unsafe, please note the floor, or should I say lack of!

DSCF2736

Walls were painted everywhere I turned.

DSCF2861

This piece looked familiar.

DSCF2865

42…..that rings a bell too.

DSCF2748

I repeat, graffiti was everywhere.

DSCF2807

Graffiti overload, is that possible? Well to be fair, I came close, it made me dizzy.

Toupe, from the North east? Lord of the Rings, love it.

Eject EP, awesome.

DSCF2660

Part of an Eject piece I would have loved to have seen intact.

One of the last photos of the day, by Debris.

I was exhausted and we still had a taxi and 2 trains to get before we were home. The charging about and clambering up and downstairs were going to take their toll as well.

Well worth it though.
