Crack and Crackers

Keeping one eye firmly on the floor I revisit my favourite crack den Boms, Narke, CoLor and Ema had all braved it too.

Mr Wolf and Acab.

Initially I thought this was Bubba, but soon found out it was JS , a Manchester based artist.

Woolly Mammoth by Kid Acne, not necessarily anatomically correct, perhaps.

Mila K, found his way to the cracker factory and painted one of his wonderful characters, dark and surreal, fantastic!

Some purists don’t like paste ups, I do, this little chap is by Tekonta Secta and I think he’s ace, and various different creatures of his/hers are appearing all over.

Kaper, not a name I know, but it’s definitely an eyecatching piece.

The Penrose Triangle, a shape that is impossible, by Phlegm.

Again there is so much more I could show, I love the amount of graffiti going on in Sheffield!

Parallel Lines

Even though this place scares me to death, it’s one of my favourite spots, it has a real vibe to it. It reminds me of pictures I’ve seen of graffiti in New York, years of piece on top of piece, tags on top of tags, all colours all styles.

This piece by Meth, typically bright as always.

Long Live the Explorer by Clem Alice. I think this is an early piece of his. Much of Clem Alice stuff was a little bit different and very interesting, he’s not active at the moment, but I do hope he’s back on it soon.

Booms, the more I look, the more I realise, this guy owns Sheffield, he is prolific, and pretty awesome.

Boms Fase, Riseone and more probably, a real mix, vivid and eyecatching, love it!

Wolf I believe, is a real contender for Boms’  crown of busiest quality graffiti artist in town, but he’s a long way to go yet.

This character from a piece by ACAB was still visible although the rest had been painted over. Well everyone likes a piggy don’t they?
