Along came a Spider, so happy that Phlegm paid us a visit, love this so much, it was worth the brambles and everything. D7606, ready to use wheatpaste, my favourite shade. C3, these ladies are developing nicely,gorgeous. Eug, got a strange taste in underwear, like the tattoos though. 🙂 Rialto and Earth, getting busy, which is a good thing I think.Brayk Graff ‘The coldest flame in Sheffield’, know the feeling.J Davies Arts, eye popping letters.007, old piece ( the writer sadly died in 2000) uncovered by clearance of vegetation on railtracks, very well preserved.Mila K, looking good, as always, fun to find, as always… This Alex Ekins Raven wheatpaste is definitely one of my favourites. Stunning Lord of the Rings themed wall from Mace, Surge, Gzos and Shadyone Amp.Evo, Pawski and Shoe,very handsome portrait of a fellow in the middle there 😉Coloquix, seeing double and with the reflection almost double double!! Skint and Sico, way too cool for school. Class of 2015 by CoLor, I’m particularly fond of the little details on this. Hungry Horace seemed to disappear altogether, but perhaps not,this doesn’t look new but it’s certainly not as old as his other stuff, the plot thickens….
I read an interview with D7606 on New Urban Eras website, now there’s a guy who travels the country photographing graffiti, pasting his quirky telephone boxes on the way, and where’s his favourite spot? Sheffield! Hardly surprising really.
I’m guessing the paste up is another of the new batch in the city, all good.Rocket01s’ tribute piece to Neil Armstrong has been widely covered so I thought I’d post a close up, the facial features are amazing.Riseone and (insert name here), got a green thing going on here, I like. Meth,love this and the new big one I haven’t seen in the flesh is brilliant.I don’t know, made me smile though. 🙂This is just beautiful, I think it’s a real work of art, Foundry has excelled himself with this lovely lady. Solo, really like the colours and fill with this.Coloquixs’ lucious lady, gets about she does…Alex Ekins has been at it again, paste up Sherpas this time. This one’s my favourite.H2i have got the city looking lovely at the moment, this is a close up of Maces’ latest in the centre.Pawski, definitely one with an eye for the ladies this fellow 😉 Evo and Mars, bangin’!Gzos with an ace piece to celebrate his mate Pete triumphing over cancer. Lovely tribute.
Perhaps I’m aiming too low with Yorkshires’ top spot, perhaps we’re the top spot in the UK, well nearly 🙂
Don’t know the name of this artist, but I know he’s got a beard, if that helps…Brisk, appropriate name, he’s all over the place at the moment, very brisk indeed. Health and Safety advice, ‘Try not to face plant’ !The legend that is Form been back around these parts recently.Enoesir or Riseone if you prefer.Rocket01, back with a bang, really good to see that he reclaimed this spot too after his previous piece was unceremoniously destroyed with a chainsaw.Bob with his little red devil, don’t know if the other character has a name.Trik9 and Meth got the moody blues in town, love it.C3 /D7606 pasteup collaboration in a rather random place.Evo and Mars H2i, BS production,strong with the force these ones are.Anyone 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.
CoLor Art put together a stunning collection, but the characterised gas bottles were my favourite. ( And it is my birthday soon, hint hint. 😉 ) Faunagraphic 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.
Got a bit stir crazy on New Years Day so had a trip to a new (to me)spot, most of the work looked like it had some age to it but there was some interesting new stuff too.No idea who did most of it, no pun intended!Quite like this little chap.Ocelot, at least the persistent rain provided some nice reflection puddles.I was going to guess at what this said but decided against it.This was a new piece, love it, curious to see what they do next. Will definitely be visiting this place again.Awesome character by Mars.Evo, doubled. 🙂 Suek, in a place where wasn’t particularly easy to take a picture.Sour and Skint, much like.Danks with a bull by Emit (I think)a really striking wall, marvellous.The Doctor will see you now. That D7606 has been out and about again.
Due to the bad weather and generally being very lazy over the christmas and new year, got a fair bit of leg work to do… that’s the fitness regime sorted!
Even though the weather has certainly turned autumnal, there’s still a lot going on in the city, I revisited one of my favourite urbex spots to get this Mila K x Skint piece. Stood at the tramstop and spotted this eyecatching little number!I’m sure Skint said he’d never paint the ballcourts again, must be an imposter! 😉This is a bit of a cobbled together photo, the pieces by Prone and CoLor were completed a few days before Espre finished his bit. unfortunately somebody felt the need to ruin CoLors piece before I could get a complete finished shot, so this is a composite set of three images taken several days apart. This seems to be happening a lot lately, with several artists being targeted, not big and not clever. As you can see it was a great wall, if only for a short time. I don’t know who did this, Aspirin, may or may not be a clue, whoever did it, I like it, a lot.I’m not sure who did this either, but it’s ace. I now have it on good authority that this piece is by Meth, which I thought it might be, but wasn’t sure.Xhastexo x Bine x Greenz, a lovely combination. H2i member Pawski, flying solo on this one, awesome as per usual, and he just about finished it before it went dark!H2i, were out in force for this one, Pawski, Mace, Mars, Evo and Seed spent the Remembrance weekend on this truly wonderful production, a very fitting tribute to the fallen.And now for something completely different! Bunny !
Third and final trip, probably, to Wakefield and the last ‘Revive’ Jam of the year, and what a turnout! Kem Mef paid a visit and did a cracking piece that I managed to not get a single decent shot of.
Apologies to any artist painting that aren’t featured, once again just too much good stuff, not that I’m complaining…
Sadly though I have to report a number of the large pieces had been dogged within days, jealousy makes children of some people it would seem…. but lots of photos were taken on the day by lots of photographers, so the images will remain in all their glory on line at least.
