In With The Old And The New

  DSCF7785Got a bit stir crazy on New Years Day so had a trip to a new (to me)spot, most of the work looked like it had some age to it but there was some interesting new stuff too.DSCF7787No idea who did most of it, no pun intended!DSCF7797Quite like this little chap.DSCF7800Ocelot, at least the persistent rain provided some nice reflection puddles.DSCF7815I was going to guess at what this said but decided against it.DSCF7820This was a new piece, love it, curious to see what they do next. Will definitely be visiting this place again.DSCF7829Awesome character by Mars.DSCF7835Evo, doubled.  🙂 DSCF7843Suek, in a place where wasn’t particularly easy to take a picture.DSCF7927Sour and Skint, much like.DSCF7919 StitchDanks with a bull by Emit (I think)a really striking wall, marvellous.DSCF7935The Doctor will see you now. That D7606 has been out and about again.

Due to the bad weather and generally being very lazy over the christmas and new year, got a fair bit of leg work to do… that’s the fitness regime sorted!

The Wild West of Sheffield

DSCF2589The Wild West, apparently. I have no idea what it’s about, it’s pretty big though.

DSCF2929Emit, Erase and Mr Danks, claiming the biggest wall in the skatepark, I wonder how long this one lasts, there’s a very rapid turnover up here at the moment.

DSCF3003Laura, by or for, I’m not really sure.

DSCF2934Evil Minion by CoLor Art, he’s a Minion and he’s purple, which makes him perfect.

DSCF2766 DSCF2768The rabbit is by Petro, the board which was propped at the side of it, maybe not.

DSCF2803This was one of a series of awesome pieces by Mila K that were painted whilst I was incapacitated with a broken leg. Nearly 10 months on, I finally made it up the huge ramp that they were above, much to the horror and amusement of a group of young boys, who insisted on helping me down so I didn’t hurt myself, bless’em!

DSCF2884 DSCF2887 DSCF2889 DSCF2902 DSCF2873Local artists including Booms, Jaer, Kode and CoLor helped decorate a set location for local film maker Theo Cane and I was lucky enough to get a sneeky peek.

DSCF3108Sour on it with his pussy cat, I really like this character.

DSCF2771You never just see one rabbit do you, this cheekychap is by new artist Greenz.

DSCF3123This was an unexpected treat, a Kid Acne piece done to coincide with Tramlines perhaps,whatever, I love these characters.

There’s more much more, I’m seriously behind in sorting my photos, hopefully I’ll catchup soon……better than being bored I suppose 😉

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.

 

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…
