Sharrow Graff Jam 2013

DSCF2241Skema and Apps travelled up early from Walsall to take part in this years Jam, producing a stunning Star Wars themed collaboration. Perhaps it was part of a cunning plan to make sure they got finished sooner and didn’t fry like the rest of us, because it was certainly a scorcher.

DSCF2318Meth looking very dapper as he worked on a piece in his trademark style.

DSCF2267Mis Red, not been out and about as much as I’d like to see, produced a lush cats and mouse piece, hope there will be more soon.

DSCF2321Trik9, excellent as always.

DSCF2316Xhastexo and Bine, a winning combination, fuelled by Budweiser!

DSCF2334DSCF2332DSCF2330Bob, Public Offender and I’m not sure who, painted some of the smaller panels on the outside of the ball court.

DSCF2314I like this and wish my reading of letters was better, so I could tell you who it was.

 

DSCF2296Mr Ryak, always nice to see.

 

DSCF2340MTH Crew, great to see them in Sheffield, a really talented bunch.

 

DSCF2840Kosy, cannot tell you how happy I was that he came and did a piece at the jam and that I met him and he was great!

DSCF2834Si2, Hull Graffiti, I can watch this guy paint all day he’s like a magician, even if you’re watching his every move, you still don’t know how he does it.

 

DSCF2337Five Five in action.

 

DSCF2837Such, organiser of the graff jam, love the colours in this.

 

DSCF2842Lone and Bern key artists at the jam…DSCF2843…as is Kode it wouldn’t be the same without them.

DSCF2831Last but by no means least Pawski, Shoe and Mace, a force to be reckoned with. A fantastic piece, again, can’t wait to see what they pull out of the bag for Tamworth.

So yes all in all a good day out, met lots of people, got burnt to a crisp, saw some wonderful graffiti/art, got a Booms piece of my own and had some fabulous indian food, does it get any better than that? Probably not…

P.S. Apologies to any artist not featured here, there was just too much!

Busy Busy Busy

DSCF6790

Despite the lousy weather, the graff scene in Sheffield is buzzing and Mr Booms continues to dominate the city, one wall at a time.

DSCF6753

TCM turned our in force to redecorate the ballcourts; Daso, Dial, Burn, Kory, Kode, Lone and Jaer smashed this wall.

DSCF6235

Mila K and CoLor Art have been busy near the water, the local wildlife don’t seem too impressed, but I love it.

DSCF6222

Mila K has been very busy, he even has his own exhibition.

DSCF6219

Prone has nearly finished what will be an awesome piece based on Cruella De Ville and the 101 Dalmatians.

DSCF6779

Even Mis Red Art and Kaze  ventured out to paint, first time in a while for both I think, but good to see.

DSCF6792

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!

2012 Sheffield Personal Favourites

DSCF2350

When it comes to choosing favourites for Sheffield, I may be foolish, even to try, there are so many. But I thought I’d give it a go anyway and I apologise in advance if I’ve managed to upset anybody, it really wasn’t my intention.

Above is my favourite Rocket01 piece of the year, I do love a bit of nature!

DSCF5761

Favourite Mila K, because I believe this was the first time he did the fully formed ‘Mila’ character in Sheffield.

DSCF2797

 

Wolf because…………………because he can!

DSCF7680

 

Fauna Graphic, Crane, because I think it’s lovely.

DSCF0802

 

Trik9, just awesome, best thing he’s done to date.

DSCF8059

Skint, I love the character and the range of colours he uses, always have.

DSCF5736

 

Mis Red Art, new to the street scene, force to be reckoned with I think!

DSCF1738

 

Gzos with a little help from Jaer ‘War of the Words’ a favourite because of the sheer amount of work that went into it. So disappointed I missed out on the ‘pants’ shots though!

DSCF4877

 

CoLor Art, S1N City, because it’s really good and I don’t want to have sort through the sheer volume of brilliant work by this artist, to have to try and choose another.

DSCF2961

 

Booms character piece, part of a collaboration with Rocket01. Favourite because, Booms is famous for his letters pieces but this year his characters have been amazing and I just adore this one.

DSCF3610

 

Earth/mune and Dyson joint favourites because when I first got into this I wasn’t really into letters pieces, because of writers like these, I’m getting into it a lot more. Although my reading skills still need to improve a bit ( a lot!)

DSCF4871

No favourites list of mine would be complete without Phlegm and I chose this as my favourite because when most  people would be suffering from jetlag, after a long haul flight from Sri Lanka, he was out painting boards.

So that’s it 2012 over, New Year just beginning, really looking forward to what lies ahead, whatever it may be. I’m so lucky to live in a city with such a thriving scene, 2013, bring it on! Continue reading

Whirlwind Track Water Cracker and House Stop

Boms had paid a visit trackside with Teas to paint this wonderful collaboration featuring a rather unusual character doing something ….umm …well a little … mmm…inappropriate shall we say?

Saer has been doing his bit too, I haven’t seen him use this style before.

CoLor Art has got a thing about pigeons, if he goes to a building that hasn’t got any, he feels the need to put one there, and he felt the need to put one here.

As English summers go this one was even more rubbish than usual so although this is normally a winter retreat, it has remained quite active with Gzos and Jaer doing these awesome pieces.

Kase has returned to painting after a break and worked on this piece with Mis Red Art, a newcomer to the graffiti scene.

Went out onto a very dodgy roof to get a picture of this rat, I don’t know who did it but I hope they paint somewhere less life threatening next time.

The House Skatepark exterior has had a makeover, a huge production with Phlegm, Boms, Gzos, Jaer and Teas, still haven’t managed a picture of the full wall. Annoyingly every time I go there are vehicles blocking the view.

Boms part of the production was completed first, love it! I will get a picture of the full wall eventually.
