Tour de Graff

DSCF2061While the many were watching mad men on bicycles I had a little wander. Got to this just after Meth had finished it. DSCF2058Nice bit of Bob.DSCF2054Byne and Haste are really on it at the moment.DSCF1925Interesting collaboration between Casino and Desmond, definitely different.DSCF2097D7606 has added another little yellow piece to this extremely very busy doorway. DSCF2102Kosh-9s definitive canine.DSCF2129 StitchaWas good to catch up with Burn and Kode of TCM as they finished this awesome wall, sadly Rackone had left before I got there.DSCF2146Love these cheeky chappies!DSCF2161This simply stunning piece featuring Gail, the dominatrix, from Sin City is another creation by Surge. DSCF2202Eug going large, I was amazed that the scary baby was still there by the time I got to it, but it is pretty firmly attached.DSCF2196A topical cracker by Rocket01 appeared a few days after the Tour de France had left.DSCF2191Not sure of the names for this one.DSCF2185Rateones’ scary cyclops,lurking in the darkness.DSCF2213 StitchThis is going to be awesome, can’t wait to see it finished.

Derby Graff Jam : Court In The Act

DSCF1267Had a little trip over to Derby for the first ‘Court in the Act’ event. The above piece, by Tekonta Secta, greeted us on our arrival.DSCF1269Sheffield was well represented, Casino was in attendance.DSCF1282As were Xhastexo and Byne.DSCF1284Plenty of local talent was on display too. DSCF1289Deze, some names were shamelessly stolen from the Derby Graff page on Facebook 😉 https://www.facebook.com/graffitiderby?fref=tsDSCF1293Lisk Bot with one of his wonderful creations.DSCF1294I think this was an old piece, loving the style.DSCF1295An eye-catching piece by Repz.DSCF1324Rise, this was one of favourite pieces on the day.DSCF1336CoLor Art was there too to take on the container challenge, I think he won.DSCF1351Last saw this writers work at Russells Youth Club, great to see him in action again.DSCF1353Rews another local lad I think.DSCF1357Nice piece by Peach, good to see her trying different things.DSCF1359Rate One knocked out this cracking piece, not bad at all for his first paint at a jam.DSCF1349Byne and Xhastexo were asked to paint a car by nearby resident. Local children were very concerned that they had permission to do this, and even though the artists assured them they did, they still felt the need to check with the car owner as well!DSCF1365Gutted that we had to leave before the paper came off.DSCF1300Apologies to Lisk Bot for being one of the many who asked where the robot was……he was hiding all the time! 😉

Really enjoyed this little jam, hope there will be another one soon, and well done to Jay for organising it!

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!
