Living It Up In Leicester

I’ve had a couple of visits to Leicester and surrounding areas recently. Initially I hadn’t been keen on the idea of the trip, didn’t think there would be much to see, how wrong I was…DSCF0394Ample, great to find some of his work on his home turf. DSCF0398I would dearly love to know who did this, I think it’s a few years old, but I love it.DSCF1758 Sweet 🙂DSCF1781Fantastic, this reminds me of photos I’ve seen of graffiti in New York. DSCF1867So much good stuff. DSCF1904Mono x Kaption, surreal. DSCF1926Love this one too! I think it’s by Fidget.DSCF3788 StitchRiot68 x MonoDSCF3825 StitchReally appreciate big walls like this!DSCF3843Brilliant!DSCF3849Strange, but I like it.DSCF3864 DSCF1857 DSCF1859How could you not like this?DSCF1903Mig29 love his work.DSCF1943 Stitch‘The FlyerBrigade’DSCF1996Random….. I have been told this is by Frankie Strand. DSCF2017Foundry beautiful Goldfinch study.DSCF2028Two for joy – MonoDSCF2041CreedDSCF2045Could be Mono, could be someone else entirely… DSCF3755 StitchbRiot68 x Wrest1 x Mono DSCF2060Mono DSCF2077 DSCF2089Love this too… DSCF2101Boaster x Kid30 winning!DSCF3923Amazing spot this, apart from the angry cow, I won’t ever forget her, scared me s***less!

It’s fair to say that Leicester was pretty awesome, I have barely posted a fraction of the photos there was just so much, it was amazing. And yes, this post is a bit Mono heavy, I make no apology for that, he’s all over the place and he’s so good. Some of the spots are not really close together, but should you have access to a car and a few hours to spare, it’s well worth the trip  🙂

Winter Wonders

DSCF7888 StitchFinished and the scaffolding gone at last, this is a really impressive wall at the Hubs.DSCF7895Foundry braved the cold and rain to create this masterpiece only to have the downpour wash away his efforts so he had to go back and do it all again! I think it was worth the effort though 😉DSCF7964Mr Kent has been making these figures appear around the city centre for some time, a sculptor by trade, I’m guessing these pasteups are from photos of his sculptures, I think they’re ace.DSCF7955 StitchaNarke, Wrest1 and Skan worked on this amazing collaboration, I love the colours, inspired by the temperature perhaps?DSCF7932Xhastexo has created a lovable little character that I hope we’ll be seeing a lot more of.DSCF7937I’m very partial to a bit of Bob.DSCF8009Mila K x Narke, just keep getting better.DSCF7996Some usually does pieces that are really multi coloured and  eyecatching, this one’s a little more subtle but really good.DSCF8005Black and Meth from Angry Perverts (love that name!), bootiful!

I must say that with one thing and another I’ve been struggling to get myself out and about,I’m really happy that the miserable weather isn’t holding our artists and writers back one bit!
