Landed in Blackpool just in time to catch the man himself taking a pic of his finished wall, Dale Grimshaw, stunning as always.C3 was there, managed to miss the biggest piece she had done 😦 Truly glorious owl by Bane. Kafka Cat by D7606, good to see him too, D7606 that is, not Kafka. Gorgeous piece by Pipsqueak was Here. I particularly like the girl, she reminds me of a much younger me…Trik9 checking his own handiwork, must be pretty pleased with it. Lowdown just finishing off. He Dreamt Mars, love this. Tankpetrol, awesome. Ador painted several of these quirky characters around the place. 20/20 in action.Catch22, I heard Robin Ross say he thought this was the best piece he’d ever done, I wouldn’t disagree.Mystical carousel horses by Leona Beth. Not part of SSS but worth the hike up the other end of town to see this beauty by The Mural Artists.In another area was a rather cool gathering of writing elite Mef, Moz, Cry, Mez, Kawps, Care and Teaone, otherwise known as Mozfest.Moz, lovely bloke and Stellas’ new best friend. Cry in action.Teaone (I think) Really like this by Jay Sharples, SSS regular, always ready to go home by the time I get there, good to have a quick chat though. 🙂 Smile assisting Seca One. This wall by Smile was spectacular, totally floored Stella! Meet Stinki, painted by Ship as part of www.projectomatilha.com tremendous.Annatomix and her origami bunnies 😀Amarapordios lovely Lion.Nils Westergard, monochrome masterpiece. Pawski with a beautiful woman, again… 😉 Onesto, new to SSS, and Zina brilliant again. Richard Harrow (Boardwalk Empire) expertly recreated by AkseP19. Cheeky character by Infected by Design. All in all another very good day, had a nice catch up with a few regulars and made some new friends, Stella made quite a lot more, and she had her first charge about on a beach! Looking forward to SSS and Mozfest 2016
Decided to take a trip over to Manchester, long overdue for a visit, and of course had to go and see the piece by Mila K.Excellent capture of Nelson Mandela by Akse P19.Something a little different for C3 I think, really liking this.Wonderfully surreal piece on the shutters of the former Mooch gallery.Good to see that an original Brickz piece is still almost intact.Frogs, I like frogs 🙂Part of the Toaster wall, it was huge but has been gone over in one section.Mr Penfold,cheeky chappy. Ghostpatrol with a stunning wall in the Northern Quarter.D7606, quite near to his home territory I think, mind you he gets about.5ifur, perhaps.Strange graffiti, not that unusual 😉Tirion Lannister by Akse P19. I don’t often feature an artist twice in one blog post, but this is fantastic and it is such a shame that many of his characters have been dogged. Spotted in a carpark.Boeuf!Cool sticker/ pasteup.Don’ Sleep, by Sneak, good to see him back on it.Tankpetrol, beautiful.Another favourite from the Northern Quarter.Tony Wilson, founder of the Hacienda, immortalised by Stewy. Only found this because I got lost, wouldn’t be a day out if I didn’t get lost at least once.
Had a really good day which only the weather could spoil, and it did, my little dog nearly disappeared in a puddle and was seriously not happy. Had to share my Burgerking with her to cheer her up.
