Madchester and Wellington Mill

A couple of days before I went on holiday last September, I popped over to Manchester for Wellington House Jam, had a stroll through the Northern Quarter on the way there.

Monsteryandme, I do love these.

Adorable Dmstff!

Of course there is more, there is always more, a great day out, a wonderful place, Manchester 🙂

P.S. Due to various issues, camera related, laptop related, I’m now about 9 months behind with my blog, almost historical! 😀

 

September In The City

Ment, busy man at this moment in time, popping up all over the place.

Nems, going larger.

I know that I know who this is, but I can’t remember, like it anyway.

Eug, second attempt at getting a decent photo of this cracker, the sun played havoc with the first.

Odis x Ogosh, much like.

I dunno…

Alert HA, good innit?

The last 10 photos of the pieces featured in this blog post were part of an organised event to brighten up the Sheffield Antiques Quarter, the vision was the brainchild of Hendrika Stevens with a little (a lot) help from Kisk (Smashproof), coordinating artists. I wasn’t able to go on the day, but many others did. The event was such a success, they are doing it again in September this year.

Derby’s Yard Of Dreams, At Last!

Took me far too long to get here. What a spot!

New to me the artist OCD, and oh my do I love this!

Vince with my hero Muttley!

M82, like this.

Nostalgic piece in progress by Skan.

Had a little wander while we were there to a derelict building that was quite popular with the local yoofs, as such it was in quite a sorry state. Spotted a few nice old pieces, whilst dodging rubble being launched from the roof, including this quirky piece by Pez.

And this hairy hand by Corpse. I should point out the local kids weren’t trying to kill us, it just never entered their heads that they might…. hopefully. 😉

Timo, one of the big players in this yard, with good reason, his work is pretty awesome.

Reps, another yard king with a stunning wall.

Absolute burner from Aona x Mef (YES Mef!)

Font, cool style.

 

Pretty Flamingo by Dahan.

Moz, aka Mr Mozfest (absolute star!) x Reasm.

Pablo, possibly related to Picasso, surreal style.

Bangers from Rise x Reks.

Lush lettering by Basic x Zee.

Another corker from Reps.

Mors classic.

Grim Finga goodness.

Carrotboy, Tekonta Secta and Love Pig, the usual suspects! 🙂

Liskbot x Smegg came a bit late to the party.

Sran x Wres, two lovely guys I hadn’t met before. Not sure what time Sran will have finished his piece, he can talk the hind leg off a donkey! 😀

 

Oxer, local legend.

All in all great trip out to a fantastic place. It’s huge, the work is top notch. I wish Sheffield had a spot like this. “Build it and they will come”, the success of this spot is down to one man, he made it and they came, and they keep coming. Big ups Mr Hai!

Summertime in the Steel City

 Feisty Eug!

 Sunshine whatever the weather, need to wear shades for this banger by Kode x Bern.

Kitska, Carrot lady?

I’m sure it means something, not sure what though..

Mats in glorious technicolor!

Paul? Not sure if that’s the artists name or the characters but he’ s definitely a handsome chap.

Ment, hot hot hot!

 

Mars x Eug x Mars,buy one get one free..

Kid Acne, good to see him back in the city.

Buk, liking this a lot.

Love this lady’s work. A thing of beauty by Fem Sorcell.

Two faces, two very different styles, like them both, no idea who did either of them.

Got an invite to a ‘One Night Only’ Pop up shop, showcasing the art of Bob. I am a big fan , wasn’t going to miss it, and it was perfect, held in a derelict shop which added a gritty ambience to the event. The prices were very reasonable and I could have happily brought most of what was on display home with me. But I forced myself to settle for the piece above, and a few months later was lucky enough to acquire the piece below, which I absolutely adore as the dog in the painting is the absolute double of my girl Stella  🙂

    

 

Carpe Diem – Seize The Day

Augustish I think most of these were taken, can’t wait till the lighter nights are back.Happy to see Espre on cracking form with this classic production with Spil.

Angryface, he’s still angry.

D7606, cherryade?

Doses’ touching tribute to his friend Jack Edwards.

Breaks my heart this..

This month (August) saw the tragic loss of one of my favourite artists Kosy, formerly known as Kosy the Crackhead. A large piece of his could be seen as you rolled into Leeds train station. His stickers were all over the place and he painted in Sheffield a number of times. I only met him once, at a Sharrow Jam, I was a proper fan girl and he was lovely. He gave me some stickers too.

Absolutely gutted at his passing, my thoughts are with his family and friends.

 

Never waste a moment, you never know how many you have got…

DCIM100GOPROGOPR0415.I didn’t get to this event till late on in the day, after work, but the sun was still blazing and there was a really good atmosphere. Trik9 was just coming round after fainting from the heat, too much dancing, I was informed…. And yet Mila K hadn’t managed to catch a single ray, perhaps there’s a bit more to this Horror Kult than I realised… 😉

Kisk has put together a great event, again, looking forward to the next one!
