It’s All Going on!

DSCF5120Mars has been revisiting his childhood again, Orville, he’s his very best friend! ┬á­čśë

DSCF5118┬áTime? I’m really bad at reading letter pieces, but I do like it.DSCF5113This is something different, I’m guessing not anyone local, love the style.

DSCF5106I worry when Booms goes quiet, but when he then reappears with an epic masterpiece like this, I’m reassured that balance is restored.

DSCF5092How many hamsters can you fit in a phone box, answers on a postcard please to D7606.

DSCF5091Had to revisit this place because my first shots of this awesome Rateone piece were rubbish, think I’ve done it justice now.

DSCF5086Sour, making good use of any space.DSCF5083Tekonta Secta and CoLor, just wonderful.DSCF5072C3 x D7606, becoming regular visitors lately, the more the merrier!DSCF5075Mr Booms and CoLor, a lesson in painting on stairs and the decay of a dead pigeon.

DSCF5047A Coloquix lady being lusted over by a Rateone monster while a jealous Greenz rabbit looks on furiously, it’s like an episode of Eastenders…DSCF5061Not just a Mars favourite, one of mine too, Pinky and the Brain.DSCF5032Jaer, ┬álove the piece but have to say I don’t know who the little fellow is.

DSCF5039One of Kid Acnes’ stabby women, not sure if it’s been doctored but she looks like she’s holding a vibrator to me, or perhaps she’s a ladyboy?DSCF5042Not sure who did this but I have my suspicions.DSCF5043Bob, he’s a devil!DSCF5046Dyson and Rambo, throw up masters at the moment.

On a bit of a catch up spree at the moment, hopefully will get another post up in the next day or two.

Graffiti Central

DSCF4977I am often amazed at the detail and skill that can go into graffiti, whether it be letters or characters, but sometimes it’s the simple things, that work best. I love this cheeky Bob piece, so simple, a quick throw up, but brilliant. I could watch him glaring at passers by all day.

DSCF4969 StitchJaer had some friends over to brighten these boards in the city centre.

DSCF4957 Stitch┬áMila’s been seeing double, with these gloriously sinister twins and Cantastics’ skills continue to go from strength to strength,

DSCF4951 Rayna has done a few of these around town, this is the best in my opinion.

DSCF4947┬áIt’s a bear with a monobrow, what more can I say….Although I did manage, accidentally, to crash some band making a video at this location today, which made me laugh…

DSCF4944 Awesome character by Imer, letters by Jonas and then a quality Dyson piece as standard.

DSCF4938┬áRambo, First Blood, I’m sure John J would be pleased.

DSCF4927C3, Rate One and D7606, interesting combination, like it a lot.

Some lovely things going on in town at the moment, good to see so many arty visitors making the trip too. I do hope the ‘in house’ shenanigans don’t spoil it.

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┬áHave 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?

Trying to catch up…

DSCF7937Mr Marz has done some wonderful pieces his characters are amazing, but I think this is my most favourite…

DSCF7950Although I quite like these two too!

DSCF8342Phlegm finished this wonderful piece at the Millennium Galleries.

DSCF8388This fossil fish appeared quite soon after.

DSCF8308Bob has done a piece with a shout to Clem Alice which is good to see.

DSCF8321Spotted a nice little collaboration between CoLor Art and Xhastexo.

DSCF8365Narke x Alude x Atik colourful wall at Devonshire Green.

DSCF8373Teas x Gzos x Kode x Rack x SEN, part of the magnificent collection at the citys’ newest hotspot.

DSCF8380Ryaks cracking contribution at the bottom end of the spot.

DSCF8362And lastly, not graffiti in the strictest sense but a lovely sight to behold nonetheless, The Snog by artist, singer and local hero Pete Mckee.

I’ve seen a real change in the city over the last few months a lot more people seem to be becoming aware of and appreciating the vibrant streets around them. All good ­čÖé

Where the Wild Things Are

DSCF6186

What a wonderful start to a day, a sight like this, a fantastic collaboration with Color, Boms and Mila K. Sadly Milas’ character had to keep her clothes on due to being near a childrens play centre, not such a bad idea in this cold weather and I don’t think it detracts from the piece at all.

DSCF6177

Bob and Skint, first time working together, will certainly have made one artists day.

DSCF6136

A Phlegm x CoLor collaboration roughly 2 years apart. The Phlegm piece had lost its’ hands under another piece so CoLor attached some new ones.

DSCF6059

I met Foundry Art in Blackpool last year at the Sand Sea and Spray event where I discovered he was a Sheffield lad who had relocated to Brighton, but was set to make a return to the city. Well it took him a while, but he got here in the end, better late than never I suppose. Foundry had some art work in a small exhibition at KIAC recently, which I unfortunately missed but hopefully we’ll be seeing┬ámuch more of him now.

DSCF6099

10 has hit the ground running this year with the size and style of his pieces, clearly, size matters!

DSCF6101

 

Ryak, raising his profile, always good to see.

DSCF6062

 

Must be something in the water, the theme for 2013 definitely seems to be GO LARGE or go home. Large it is then!

I’m just a walkin’ in the Sunshine

DSCF5617

On a day that it wasn’t raining or snowing (finally!), thought I’d give my ankle a workout. First stop, the Black ┬áOut Krews’ favourite spot. Love this piece by Meth.

DSCF5627

Next stop a bit of Bob, I’d spotted. A bit of a Marmite character I think, but I like him and this quick throw up demonstrates his precise lines and his deconstructed style perfectly.

DSCF5647

Saw this on the backstreets, don’t know who it is, yet.

DSCF5649

Miso? I’m not sure, but I was tickled by the ‘Not Pink its Salmon’. ……… And made it over my first wall with no adverse effects!

DSCF5670

Eugene ‘While you were sleeping’ Booms. A nice healthy hill climb to get to this.

DSCF5679

I don’t know, I just liked it. Made me feel nostalgic for Andolf who appears to no longer be active, perhaps it’s a relative ­čśë

DSCF5695

Getting to this Gzos was quite a pilgrimage, with one 12 foot, practically vertical, very muddy bank nearly defeating me but filthy and happy, I made it. All in all a very enjoyable trek. I giggled all the way home from the bus stop as my legs had forgotten how to walk they were so tired. Just to plan next weeks route now…

Keeping on it!

DSCF5252

Got here just in time to see Mila putting her face on.

DSCF5299

Another new Stabby Woman from Kid Acne, thanks to a friend for pointing this one out to me.

DSCF5203

The unstoppable CoLor Art, started the new year pretty much the same as he finished the last one….painting, painting, painting!

DSCF5291

Not a particularly new Boms piece, just a little bit off my normal route, so it took me a while to get there.

DSCF5226

Dese, ‘Grounds 4 Divorce’, I’m sure there’s a story there, but I don’t know what it is.

DSCF5283

Drot, up there with Boms and CoLor Art for being busy, busy, busy.

Good to see that people are keeping on it, keeps me out of trouble!
