I had thought I’d be out and about over the christmas period, but due to the seaonal weather and over indulgence I haven’t got very far at all, bring on the spring, or at least some dry weather!I do have a strange fondness for this place, it was one of my very first explores, it had more walls and roofs and even windows then! But I do think it’s on borrowed time now as it is slowly but surely falling down, I’ll be surprised if it lasts another year.Surge and Britney, did it again, reclaiming a favourite spot.Simple but effective, and slightly disturbing.Mr Hastes’ monkey seems to have escaped 🙂Corpse, surely one of the most photographed pieces in Sheffield over the last few days, love it!Stickers! Featuring C3, D7606, Greenz, SSSOVA, VoxRomana and others.Mila K,Acid Junkies, took this after it had snowed and the sun was shining, it was literally blinding.Not sure who did the piece on the left, but Dyson in the middle and Teml(?)I like this, a commissioned piece #colourbritain sponsored by Dulux.Coloquix has an exhibition on at the Forum, go see it if you can. I went to the opening night, cue another hangover! 😉The skatepark is going through a popular phase at the moment, practically changing every week. Riseone and Rast, I may have seen Riseone painting this, but it probably wasn’t him… This is an art space, a space for art, the shutter apparently however, is not….
When you’re used to walking everywhere and all the time, to be told you’re out of action is frustrating. To be told to put my feet up for 6 weeks was just beyond my comprehension. Ended up hiring a wheelchair and bugging the living daylights out of my family to take me out. After all I’d got to see Boms new style of character, this handsome hippo.
I had needed to see CoLor Arts’squirrel ‘Phattening up for Winter’ and despite having to hop down the steps to get into the ballcourt, it was worth it.
CoLor Art did this Caymen (Okay Man), I don’t think it lasted a week. It’s funny how a spot will not get painted for months then suddenly will be repainted every few days, it became mental here for the next few months.
Again this is a much abridged version of what was actually going on, even for this time of year (February March), it was hard to keep up. I’m not complaining though, it’s wonderful to witness and long may it continue.
Derelict buildings with rotting floors and collapsing roofs are one thing to get the adrenaline pumping but railway lines, that’s a whole new world of terror and certain death as far as I’m concerned. Although apparently, the image above turns most grown men into school boys all over again. The first time we went to this location I had a picture in my head of a newspaper headline ‘Couple killed by Intercity 125 in search of Graffiti’, imagine my relief when we got to the track to find this lovely little engine parked and a closed gate across the track. Please be aware this is the only place I know of like this.
I have a very healthy fear of the tracks and that artists are able to go and paint in places like this amazes me. And there is some really good stuff there too.
Riseone does this little alien (?) character whom I love dearly and as such was one of the first artists whose work I could recognise.
I don’t know how that ended up there, he gets about that Phlegm doesn’t he?
Rast, he does some really colourful pieces, I particularly like this one.
Happy Halloween from Real Hate Crew! I think it’s great how many artists do seasonal pieces and productions and halloween is my favourite!
Trespassing on a railway is strictly illegal, punishable with a hefty fine or worse and having a graffiti obsession is not an acceptable defence.
