Old Places, New Bits

DSCF3517Graffiti and urbex go pretty much hand in hand, although sadly due to its soaring popularity too much information is ending up in the public domain and as a result not many new locations appear these days and if they do the window of opportunity is usually very small before a building is sealed up again. That said, the old favourites still become accessible every now and then and I was lucky enough recently to revisit two places that have a special place in my heart. Clearly I wasn’t the only one, Booms had been here too, as had quite a few others.

DSCF3496Dyson, a piece with a view.

DSCF3493A lovely blue horned monster thing from Rate One.

DSCF3490Teml, I think, somebody will let me know if I’m wrong.

DSCF3484Tekonta Secta in pink, a girly Tek?

DSCF3467Smiley Selasie, not a regular contributor, or perhaps I’m looking in the wrong places.

DSCF3463Color x Booms an excellent combination.

DSCF3534Shrooms by Nymph.

DSCF3527One of Coloquixs’ growing number of beautiful cat ladies, and this one is in extra large!

DSCF3509Is it me or are these cats starting to take over the world?

DSCF3455On my way back I spotted this piece by Rayna, a nice little find. Looking forward to what I may find next…

Rollin’ Under The Melody

DSCF3138 StitchWhat I love about my passion for graffiti is that moment when you see a wall you hadn’t expected to see, the buzz is awesome, and this was a jawdropper! Eug x Tekonta Secta x Phes x CoLor Art, wonderful!

DSCF3394Well! You don’t see that everyday!

DSCF3132I think this is Bobs’ handiwork, I really like it, but I doubt it’s still there, there were adhesive marks at the side of this, so something had already been removed.

DSCF3028The Grim Reaper by Mars? A guess on both counts. I like how he’s guarding the doorway.

DSCF3178http://youtu.be/L9WfyUBZ7I4 Have to say that Kid Acnes’Art Fags are not generally my favourites but I love this tune!

DSCF3435Painted as a tribute to a friend who has joined the RAF, Pawski and Mace have smashed it again. This is truly amazing close up and personal, so real that the gun follows you……………it honestly does! Another total jawdropper.

DSCF3105Bubba 2000 has decided to call it a day as far as the graff/art scene goes at the moment. I’m sure I read somewhere that he thinks it’s time to grow up. I’m sure he’ll get over it though, I stopped being a grown up a long time ago.

DSCF3103Last but not least, Pleb Alert! Because we all need to be alert to Plebs…don’t we?

Got To Catch ’em All, Can’t Catch ’em All!

DSCF0376Rayna, Skint and Rambo, gorgeous wall in a room with not much of a view and a not so delicate odour of pigeon poop.

DSCF0406Teml at the green, wonder how long this one will last, extremely rapid turnover there at the moment.

DSCF0420Tekonta Secta, love these, seem to miss more than I find though..

DSCF0418Riseone and Rek have made a colourful contribution on the new legal wall  in town.

DSCF0417Mila x Narke another cracker!

DSCF0369Sour, really like the cheeky character, I wonder if he has a name?

DSCF0381DSCF0402The Morrigan and the Puffin by CoLor Art. I described the Morrigan as my favouritest CoLor piece to date, and then he did the puffin, just too good!

DSCF0419It’s not often I’m beaten in my attempts to see a piece, but when there aren’t any stairs, I am! There is a way, but I’m in no rush to have any more broken bones, thank you very much. It’s a shame because there are about 4 pieces up there that I’ll never see, can’t catch ’em all I guess…
