Sheffields Answer To Felm

DSCF5793Got to practice my mountaineering skills to view this wonderful creation by Foundry.DSCF5787Found this little lady by Coloquix hiding out in pigeon land too.DSCF5766And this death defying, but only just, piece by Brisk was near the summit.DSCF5753Reverse graffiti at it’s very best, I do love it when a cover up only reinforces what it’s meant to cover up!DSCF5752YMYD, very busy body at the moment, still not sure whether it’s Gun House or Bun House… but I’d choose death by bun any day 🙂DSCF5747 Rise One quality.DSCF5735Dyson, feeling the rainbow, well most of it.DSCF5703 StitchThe Funky Mind Benders, in your face! 🙂DSCF5860JD  really love this style.DSCF5697‘Your brain is a terrible thing to waste’ – Cantastic Art.DSCF5686Lollipops, interesting collab between C3 and D7606.DSCF5656Haven’t seen this little fellow about for a while, Xhastexo.DSCF5617Peachzz and Teddy BN7, cracking piece in a great location.DSCF5605Tulip by Dala, sometimes something so simple can look so effective.DSCF5826Kent has been the target of a dogging campaign recently, at least this one is untouched.DSCF5823Not a new one I think, but only just spotted this little Eug.DSCF5820Spotted this too, don’t know who it’s by though.DSCF5673As some of you will know, work has begun on the former Gatecrasher site, hopefully we won’t lose the boards just yet.

Well my internet’s still buggered, should be back to normal soon. Good job the weather’s been so lousy I haven’t been out much.

Oh and just in case you were wondering, I have it on good authority that Felm is the correct pronunciation of Phlegm… so now you know!  😉

 

 

G’day! (Well 2 of them actually)

DSCF0275It’s always great to meet people as passionate about my hobby/ obsession as I am, so imagine how happy I was that one like-minded individual, was not only making the trip over from Australia to the UK (and Europe), but made it as far as Sheffield too! And it was my privilege to show her the sights over the two days she was here. Lady P as some of you may know is a graffaholic and I think it’s fair to say we have a lot in common. We tried to fit in as much as we could, but didn’t make it to all the spots I’d hoped. It was strange to realise how much I no longer notice, just because it’s there. It was good to see each place through another persons’ eyes.

Despite having never been finished the Phlegm piece above is still amazing.

DSCF0298 StitchThis Mega Production by Kode, Lone, Gzos and Mars was one I’d not seen up close, looks pretty special.DSCF0352Bumped into some of the new crop of artists in the city,was good to put names to pieces, the one above is by Desmond.DSCF0361Lady P caught in action photographing Peachz at work.DSCF0376The latest piece of loveliness from Eugene Booms.DSCF0444Lady P was able to see CoLor Art and Narke creating this fabulous piece, I think she took a few snaps too.DSCF0423I don’t know anything about Anubis, but I really like what he does, this is my favourite so far.DSCF0291Spied a beautiful Coloquix lady.DSCF0461Lady P was quite taken with this wall by H2i.DSCF0466Solo, I hope I got it right this time! Really like it anyway.DSCF0496I’ve not heard of Purpz before, not sure whether he’s local or not, cool piece though.DSCF0499Sico, seems to be all over the place at the moment. 🙂 DSCF0517Rather fond of these little critters by ABC.DSCF0523A horned lady by Casino, love the style of these.DSCF0526Really like this combination of paste up and paint by Dala.DSCF0540Making use of the architectural features, Meth.DSCF0543 Another making use of the architecture, can somebody tell me who it is please? I now know it’s Brisk 🙂DSCF0559Robo x Brisk, enjoying watching their styles and skills develop.DSCF0582Dyson consistently good.DSCF0572Paid a visit to the studio where Foundry works with his brother,and found this sexy lady on the wall.DSCF0570Lady P was keen to see as much as she could in her time with us, this piece by Rocket was the next to the last she saw on her trip.

It says a lot for Sheffield that someone like Lady P from so faraway, would be aware of what is going on here and want to come and see it for herself. I think we gave her a pretty grand tour, giving her a proper Yorkshire welcome and introducing her to a traditional English chippy and the questionable delights of dandelion and burdock!

It was a real pleasure to have her here I do hope she enjoyed it as much as I did…….Oh and by the way, she never said g’day once!

Dayrider, £4 Citywide Tour

DSCF8973On my travels found this beauty by C3, looks like she’s becoming a regular visitor to Sheffield, all good  🙂DSCF8902Something fishy about this Coloquix piece, not a cat in sight.DSCF8894Funny what you can find when you fall through a doorway, not sure how old this Sour x Narke collab is, but I wouldn’t have found it otherwise!DSCF8890I do like these cheeky chimps by Xhastexo, he’s got quite a collection I think.DSCF8882Sico trying something a little different, I’m a fan!DSCF8868I’m really loving these new characters from Eug, can’t believe some numpty dogged it within a week…DSCF8919Big Mouth by Rateone, I’ve seen a photo of a piece he did out of Sheffield where he made use of a doorway in a similar fashion, so glad he’s done one here.DSCF8933Greenz and Brisk, gloriously green!DSCF8947 StitchNOFX x Dyson, The Deadly Type, quality. DSCF8964After a short sabbatical, Gzos has risen again. Praise be!DSCF8970Recreating one of the prints from his recent exhibition, Kid Acnes’ Ping Pong Girls.

Mustn’t grumble about a day out for £4, always lots to see, but it would be nice if they had toilets and perhaps a mini bar on the tram…

It’s All Going On

DSCF8582Don’t know the name of this artist, but I know he’s got a beard, if that helps…DSCF8585Brisk, appropriate name, he’s all over the place at the moment, very brisk indeed. DSCF8609Health and Safety advice, ‘Try not to face plant’ !DSCF8616The legend that is Form been back around these parts recently.DSCF8631Enoesir or Riseone if you prefer.DSCF8661Rocket01, back with a bang, really good to see that he reclaimed this spot too after his previous piece was unceremoniously destroyed with a chainsaw.DSCF8670Bob with his little red devil, don’t know if the other character has a name.DSCF8758Trik9 and Meth got the moody blues in town, love it.DSCF8776C3 /D7606 pasteup collaboration in a rather random place.DSCF8789 Stitch (5000x1613)Evo and Mars H2i, BS production,strong with the force these ones are.DSCF8720Anyone who didn’t make it to the Mardy Arts Exhibition at Stripping The Willow, here is a taster of what you missed. the above wall was painted by Booms and CoLor especially for the event.

DSCF8699 DSCF8698

Just some of the loveliness available from Mila KDSCF8702A bit of a poor quality photo of a Mila piece and the jawdropping work from Booms.

DSCF8708 DSCF8697CoLor Art put together a stunning collection, but the characterised gas bottles were my favourite. ( And it is my birthday soon, hint hint.  😉 ) DSCF8703Faunagraphic had these gorgeous canvases in the exhibition,and they looked much more beautiful in the flesh rather than in this pic. It was a great little event and hopefully there will be more to come. Nice to see local artists showing their work in this way. I’m gutted that I didn’t make it down to Phlegms exhibition in London, finger crossed I make it to the next one.

City Boredom Breaker

DSCF8359Due to the abjectly miserable weather didn’t venture far on my last wander, still, there’s plenty to see in the centre of town. Seeing this name appearing more and more around the city, Rime.DSCF8457Not sure if this was a deliberate collaboration or an accidental coming together of EMA, Kid Acne and Kent, like it though.DSCF8450My second near death experience of the year,or at least it would have been if I’d been daft enough to get off the makeshift ladder onto the rotten floor. Love this Zinc piece.DSCF8440Wish I knew who this was by, but I don’t. Thanks 😀 I now know it’s Sico.DSCF8428Rayna, a little different from his usual letters.DSCF8424Brisk,another writer becoming more visible in town. Variety is the spice of life and all that, good to have some fresh talent.DSCF8420Ogosh, as in ogosh that’s rather good! DSCF8406Narke, 4 tin burn, wicked colour scheme.DSCF8405A marvellous piece from Dyson, a master of his craft.DSCF8465 StitchPopped in to Kid Acnes exhibition, met the man himself, definitely worth a visit.DSCF8515Avoided near death experiences 3 and 4 by keeping my feet firmly on the ground to catch these Eug pieces, I’ll leave the climbing to those younger and fitter than me.DSCF8497DSCF8528Lastly on my little wander I revisited a Phlegm piece that has been ravaged by nature to fantastic effect. I was still pulling thorns out of my legs when I went to bed, but I figured it was worth it 🙂
