DSCF7512Sorry 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.DSCF7580CoLor and Narke and an attack of the munchies I think.DSCF7583Cantastic Art, becoming an increasingly regular visitor to Sheffield, I like this much.DSCF7564This 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.DSCF7569 Stitch (6000x1392)Gzos and Jaer, laying claim and brightening more of the bored boards in our city.DSCF7529Slugger, much more than that I don’t know, quirky characters though 🙂 DSCF7634Heard this character was being retired, a pity if it’s true, he’s one of my favourites, by Riseone. DSCF7516And finally, the last in the series….Bunny! this one is by Alex Ekins

Buzzing!

DSCF0698A sign we’ve had some decent weather recently, the pace of work in the city has been frenetic. A recent visitor to Sheffield Rateone, brought a cuddly cyclops with him.DSCF0620Boms and CoLor Art produced this clever collaboration that is  even better in the flesh.

DSCF0614I don’t know who, Krutz perhaps? I like the elephant, blue previously, and the character to the left which is from a computer game, or so I’ve been told.

DSCF0702Xhastexo and Bine, both artists developing rapidly at the moment.

DSCF0744Prone, a favourite of mine, the character on the wall and the man himself.

DSCF0738Emit, another artist going up a notch recently, top stuff.

DSCF0612Coloquix is quietly taking over the city peeping ladies and cats are appearing all over the place.

DSCF0741Lone, on it with a passion this year, good to see.

DSCF0496With some regret the graffiti’d buiding on the Moor, and it would appear that all the boards went with it, have been demolished, it’s a pity nobody thought to save them.

DSCF0653But at least there is new Phlegm work still in progress and appearing in the city, we haven’t lost him to the rest of the world just yet.

 

Urban Art School

Well, agile I’m not, so getting in this place was quite a feat for me. I was quite giddy once I was in and found the spongey floors hilarious until I realised I was on the first floor. I didn’t think it was so funny then!

Not for the first time do I find myself in a potentially life threatening situation in search of Phlegms’ work, but it was worth it.

In between dodging holes in the floor I was really struck with the beauty of this building, even with this level of dereliction it had such character. I know I’m biased but Phlegms paintings just went so well with the surroundings. It was all so very serene apart from the flooring problems and the potential for being struck by falling roof  tiles.

This was just a corridor, with lovely huge windows, that must have looked amazing when it was intact.

Just wonderful…

…and there’s more…

These doors were awesome, small doors, because they were on childrens toilets, which unfortunately made them portable and they had left the building within days.

It felt like this building  had been Phlegms playground, he’d certainly spent some time here and even he had nearly fallen through the floor. Personally I’ve resisted the urge to go back, I don’t think I’d trust my luck a second time.
