DSCF1819DSCF2068 DSCF0229On a side note, sad to see that the new owners of the pub that was the Bell Jar have painted over all the artwork that was there, their loss (and ours) I suppose, but a pity none the less.

Whatever The Weather

DSCF5031After 2 weekends lurking in Birmingham and a broadband connection that keeps feeling nostalgic and replicating the golden age of dial up internet, I find I’ve got a bit of a backlog. So this is a larger than normal Sheffield post while I try to get back on track.

Return To The Lego Factory

DSCF0841Had a lovely day out with two friends at one of my favourite urbex/graff spots.The first time I came here it was a cold grey November day and I was on crutches. This time the weather was glorious and I was running round like a spring chicken, well almost! It was great to see that much has changed since my last trip. I’ll apologise in advance for not knowing who most of the artists are. P.S. I have since been informed that the piece above is by Harriet AKA Ruby – Thank you! 🙂DSCF0843I know who these are though an unexpected sight this piece from Sico and Nymph.DSCF0851Eject Ep, love this character. DSCF0857Kombo (?) very colourful whoeverit is. DSCF0898 StitchInteresting combination of the old and the new.DSCF0946 StitchUKS, I’m a big fan of their work, was chuffed to see this here.DSCF0955Really like this. DSCF1038 StitchLove the pigeon, I’m sure I’ve seen his brother in Leeds.DSCF1044 StitchLike the colours in this, although the yellow one looks a bit out of place.DSCF1053Found the remains of an old piece that was inaccessible to me when I was on crutches.DSCF0881Another eye-popper.DSCF0994Lurking in quiet spot, I found this gorgeous painted Painted Dog, by CoLor, I wonder how that got there…DSCF0970Unfortunately I did manage to upset some of the locals, Mr and Mrs Swallow couldn’t wait for us to leave. Apparently, they thought we were a bad influence on the kids. I’m sure we’ll be back at some point, hope they’ll be pleased to see us then  😉

 

G’day! (Well 2 of them actually)

DSCF0275It’s always great to meet people as passionate about my hobby/ obsession as I am, so imagine how happy I was that one like-minded individual, was not only making the trip over from Australia to the UK (and Europe), but made it as far as Sheffield too! And it was my privilege to show her the sights over the two days she was here. Lady P as some of you may know is a graffaholic and I think it’s fair to say we have a lot in common. We tried to fit in as much as we could, but didn’t make it to all the spots I’d hoped. It was strange to realise how much I no longer notice, just because it’s there. It was good to see each place through another persons’ eyes.

Despite having never been finished the Phlegm piece above is still amazing.

DSCF0298 StitchThis Mega Production by Kode, Lone, Gzos and Mars was one I’d not seen up close, looks pretty special.DSCF0352Bumped into some of the new crop of artists in the city,was good to put names to pieces, the one above is by Desmond.DSCF0361Lady P caught in action photographing Peachz at work.DSCF0376The latest piece of loveliness from Eugene Booms.DSCF0444Lady P was able to see CoLor Art and Narke creating this fabulous piece, I think she took a few snaps too.DSCF0423I don’t know anything about Anubis, but I really like what he does, this is my favourite so far.DSCF0291Spied a beautiful Coloquix lady.DSCF0461Lady P was quite taken with this wall by H2i.DSCF0466Solo, I hope I got it right this time! Really like it anyway.DSCF0496I’ve not heard of Purpz before, not sure whether he’s local or not, cool piece though.DSCF0499Sico, seems to be all over the place at the moment. 🙂 DSCF0517Rather fond of these little critters by ABC.DSCF0523A horned lady by Casino, love the style of these.DSCF0526Really like this combination of paste up and paint by Dala.DSCF0540Making use of the architectural features, Meth.DSCF0543 Another making use of the architecture, can somebody tell me who it is please? I now know it’s Brisk 🙂DSCF0559Robo x Brisk, enjoying watching their styles and skills develop.DSCF0582Dyson consistently good.DSCF0572Paid a visit to the studio where Foundry works with his brother,and found this sexy lady on the wall.DSCF0570Lady P was keen to see as much as she could in her time with us, this piece by Rocket was the next to the last she saw on her trip.

It says a lot for Sheffield that someone like Lady P from so faraway, would be aware of what is going on here and want to come and see it for herself. I think we gave her a pretty grand tour, giving her a proper Yorkshire welcome and introducing her to a traditional English chippy and the questionable delights of dandelion and burdock!

It was a real pleasure to have her here I do hope she enjoyed it as much as I did…….Oh and by the way, she never said g’day once!

Dayrider, £4 Citywide Tour

DSCF8973On my travels found this beauty by C3, looks like she’s becoming a regular visitor to Sheffield, all good  🙂DSCF8902Something fishy about this Coloquix piece, not a cat in sight.DSCF8894Funny what you can find when you fall through a doorway, not sure how old this Sour x Narke collab is, but I wouldn’t have found it otherwise!DSCF8890I do like these cheeky chimps by Xhastexo, he’s got quite a collection I think.DSCF8882Sico trying something a little different, I’m a fan!DSCF8868I’m really loving these new characters from Eug, can’t believe some numpty dogged it within a week…DSCF8919Big Mouth by Rateone, I’ve seen a photo of a piece he did out of Sheffield where he made use of a doorway in a similar fashion, so glad he’s done one here.DSCF8933Greenz and Brisk, gloriously green!DSCF8947 StitchNOFX x Dyson, The Deadly Type, quality. DSCF8964After a short sabbatical, Gzos has risen again. Praise be!DSCF8970Recreating one of the prints from his recent exhibition, Kid Acnes’ Ping Pong Girls.

Mustn’t grumble about a day out for £4, always lots to see, but it would be nice if they had toilets and perhaps a mini bar on the tram…
