Sorry for the gap between posts, been caught up in the festive spirit (blatant lie!) Anyway let’s get back on track. I do like stickers and slaps, nice to see a Tom Newell one.CoLor and Narke and an attack of the munchies I think.Cantastic Art, becoming an increasingly regular visitor to Sheffield, I like this much.This gorgeous lion is part of an amazing looking mural on the Hallam Uni Students Union building , painted by graphic design graduate Sachin Limbachia, can’t wait to see it without the scaffolding around it.Gzos and Jaer, laying claim and brightening more of the bored boards in our city.Slugger, much more than that I don’t know, quirky characters though 🙂 Heard this character was being retired, a pity if it’s true, he’s one of my favourites, by Riseone. And finally, the last in the series….Bunny! this one is by Alex Ekins
It’s not often I’m beaten in my attempts to see a piece, but when there aren’t any stairs, I am! There is a way, but I’m in no rush to have any more broken bones, thank you very much. It’s a shame because there are about 4 pieces up there that I’ll never see, can’t catch ’em all I guess…
So, after a tip off, I found myself on a rooftop early one morning before going to work. It’s a pretty good vantage point for the cheeky Narke piece, but imagine my surprise when a security guard arrived to escort me off the roof, I think he thought I was going to jump! To be fair, I was quite happy to see him, I hate heights and was starting to hyperventilate. Still a first though!
Phlegm, Tragedy and Comedy, which describes my access to this place, narrowly avoiding tragedy providing huge comedy for my son! This is a place I’d been looking at for a couple of years and was really surprised that this masterpiece was the only piece in here.
Nearly up to date now, although this keeping up lark is a bit like painting the Forth Bridge, neverending, but I wouldn’t have it any other way
I’ve seen a real change in the city over the last few months a lot more people seem to be becoming aware of and appreciating the vibrant streets around them. All good 🙂
Trying to catch up on pieces I’ve missed, so went for a whistle stop tour of a few sites, not easy when you’re doing it by bus and foot, all good for the fitness regime though! Found Superman,check. Just Wonder Woman to get now. At least I know where she is, thanks to a little help.
Half of me is seriously not happy about this piece encroaching on Phlegms cat/manatee, but the other half can see that it is deteriorating with time. I quite like the Smut piece, but it will be a sad day when the Phlegm piece has gone altogether.
Good to see new pieces by CoLor and Skint. Getting back to a semblance of normality was great and I really appreciated that the local lads had kept been busy creating things for me to go and look at, not that they had done it for me really, but all the same…
Although to be fair, I was still on catch up too, like this CoLor x Narke x Mila piece, which I had known of for a while but not been able to access.
Rocket01 and Boms wall, fantastic!
Seasonal piece by Riseone, whom I believe I met although he was adamant he wasn’t him…
Atik, relocated from Brighton and a top bloke, had seen some of his work before and not known who it was.
Not sure of the names, but I believe these guys are from the north east, they certainly get about a bit.
Espre, love this piece, he doesn’t paint as often as I’d like.
This was done a couple of years ago by Ziru a french artist, I’ve only just seen it and I really like it.
So, I’m trying to get straight for the end of the year, so I can start 2013 blogging in real time instead of retrospective, so I apologise that I may have omitted some valuable works, it won’t happen again, honest.
