Seem to have got myself a little behind of late, I blame my crappy internet, (3.5 hours to upload 60 photos!), my garden, it’s a jungle out there, really it is, and also the fact that so much work is so widely documented that there really doesn’t seem to be any need to rush…. so I won’t. 😉 Suek always nice to see work by this talented guy. Meth, the cheeky leg was covered over quickly, glad I got to see it. Coloquix, lady in the lake, well brook actually, had a longer than expected walk to find her, worth the effort though. Foundry, Caught this handsome chap busy on this beautiful tribute piece for sweet Ruby who was only here for eleven days but her memory will live on with her family always. Took me several attempts to get a shot of this due to cars parked in front of it. The piece was completed shortly before Rubys funeral. Another lovely tribute for Ruby by Mace, Surge and Mars. Aero x Dose, they don’t get as much coverage as some artists, but are constantly keeping on it. I’m guessing not local, but my what a wall!? x Ask x Dyel, great set of blokes who don’t get out as often as I’d like 😉 Riseone x I don’t know, but I really like it. Kisk, another fellow who needs to get out more, although I do know he’s often busy with community projects. Slew x Orin, not seen these guys in Sheffield before, they can normally be found lurking further south.Vintage Teas, goodness knows how old it is!Booms, I like to think this is based on me apart from the tattoos, the bald head and the beard 🙂 Broker, long time no see, perhaps I’m just going to the wrong places…
Despite the lousy weather, the graff scene in Sheffield is buzzing and Mr Booms continues to dominate the city, one wall at a time.
TCM turned our in force to redecorate the ballcourts; Daso, Dial, Burn, Kory, Kode, Lone and Jaer smashed this wall.
Mila K and CoLor Art have been busy near the water, the local wildlife don’t seem too impressed, but I love it.
Mila K has been very busy, he even has his own exhibition.
Prone has nearly finished what will be an awesome piece based on Cruella De Ville and the 101 Dalmatians.
Even Mis Red Art and Kaze ventured out to paint, first time in a while for both I think, but good to see.
Rapidly becoming an art form in it’s own right is bad graffiti removal. The ghost of Bloodax lives on!
It’s shaping up nicely to be quite a year for graffiti/street art in this city. Ooo I’m all of a quiver!
On Saturday night I was very privileged to be invited to a cast and crew screening of a new documentary made by talented, local film maker, Theo Cane Garvey, called Sheffield Graffiti Kingdom. Theo has had an interest in graffiti since child hood and decided last year to make this film. It’s a fascinating insight into the history of graffiti in Sheffield and features a number of the key players involved with the birth and growth of the scene, all of whom were in the audience. It was an amazing night, the documentary is most excellent, and for someone like myself who has only been involved with graff for a few years, it was really quite educational. The atmosphere was brilliant, with a real feel that we were all seeing something very special. The film is being put forward for this years Doc/Fest, if you get the chance go see it!
All the writers and artists involved with the film signed a canvas for Theo.( Theo is pictured above right with some of the artists featured.)

Theo Cane Garvey is not new to film making and is currently busy with a new project called ‘Unit 11’ which is a follow up to ‘Plague World’ a violent, survival type horror movie filmed in Sheffield. Here is a quick look at some of the artwork produced to be part of the set.

The graffiti scene in Sheffield is buzzing at the moment, it’s a brilliant place to be. I love my city!
