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.

DSCF3909 StitchGzos recently organised for a group of renowned artists, not from Sheffield, to come and paint in town, the results are great, I hope they do it more often…. I’m sure Smoke would appreciate the repeat business too…

Mantra Live, Wellington Mill, Manchester

Made a trip to Manchester to see the Mantra Live paint and music event organised in part by the masterful Jay Sharples. Initially I plotted a route to the wrong Wellington Mill, Manchester has two apparently,and then due to the fact that my phone is broke, so I had no internet or GPS, and the fact that I am rather special, I managed to get hopelessly lost! End result I had to be guided in by a very helpful friend, though it was sadly almost 4pm before I got there. On the plus side, the party was in full swing  and I was quite confident most of the pieces would be finished before my home time 🙂 DSCF1585Trion                      DSCF1593SR47, one of two pieces he completed, bur Sid was probably my favourite.

 DSCF1596Tasha Whittle in action.         DSCF1607Jay Sharples, man of many talents.    DSCF1612Rocket01, could’t attend on the day so rocked up a couple of days before and dropped this beauty.                 DSCF1616 DSCF1620 DSCF1623Catch22DSCF1670  DSCF1681Stemfour                                                                                      DSCF1682 Chris ‘Bunny’ Howker                                                                 DSCF1683Furiouspie.      DSCF1660 None, the devil is in the detail.       DSCF1699Kathy Bates being given the Akse P19 treatment. DSCF1701Doodlesndrips with ‘Frank’.    DSCF1659More weird wonderfulness from Infected by Design. DSCF1705Qbek, not a new piece this, but brilliant anyways, the bicycles seem to work with it too.                                DSCF1711N4T4, lovely guy, lovely piece, not sure if he ever got his burger! 😉                                 DSCF1715 StitchTrik9, this fellow is positively on fire at the moment and he went down a treat in Manchester! DSCF1727Pawskis’ lady complete, one of his best ever I think.                                                    DSCF1696Foundry applying the finishing touches to Mr Tesla.                                                                                               DSCF1747Seca stunner.DSCF1748 DSCF1749Nomad Clan, first time I’d seen them in action, love their stuff.                                          DSCF1750Sorry, don’t know the artist but this was a real piece of work, fascinating watching it all come together.Since been informed the artist is Betarock75, thanks!

Had a good catch up with some friends, hopefully made a few more too. All in all a great day and fingers crossed, I will be able to find my way there without a problem next time, but I’m not holding my breath!  🙂

Still Brightening The City Wall by Wall And Board By Board

DSCF0722 StitchIzal, king of his own Castle!  DSCF0712Eug – Neatness aint my weakness, but f**k me it gets boring! First world problems 😉 DSCF0705 StitchNo idea who did this but it’s really rather good. DSCF0675 StitchaMarcus Method x STOG wall for Fifty Shades of Spray, probably looked better without the varnish or whatever it is thown on it, but the quality shines through. DSCF0514 StitchaDmak x CynikDSCF0465 Stitch Trik x STOG x Hyro x Kisk x Marcus Method, glorious! DSCF0460Dyson, he’s a Full Metal Brother. DSCF0443Rocket01, brilliant part of a wall that will be amazing when it’s all finished. DSCF0442Tofu, probably DSCF0380New banging piece from Form.DSCF0373Skam, new to me, much like 🙂  DSCF0331 StitchBob x Skint x Suek, painting them awkward to photograph places, again!DSCF0315Beautiful Peacock by Moenipulation, part of what is going to be, hopefully, a massive art project in the Sheffield Antiques Quarter. DSCF0274 StitchGrips, this is just awesome!DSCF0267Fishy Gums..DSCF0247?DSCF0767 StitchStunner from Mars and Kode.DSCF0745aDeap x Dese x Ensa x Narke loving the colours!

Visited a few places I haven’t been in a while recently, some had changed more than others,but all change is good(hopefully), noticing a few new spots appearing too, fingers crossed they keep appearing as fast as the old ones are being demolished!

Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman. Then always be Batman.

DSCF9825 StitchmBit of a delay between posts,mostly because of this wonderful piece by Bob x Skint x Suek, which was an absolute pig to photograph, very good though, and really rather clever.  🙂  DSCF8261Dmak, reclaiming what is seeming to be one of his regular spots.DSCF8286Managed to catch the man himself, Rocket01, just putting the finishing touches to this beauty, stunning.DSCF9598Brayk, we can fix you…we can make you fit in. I read this wrong initially as ‘we can fix Ada’, but we can probably fix her as well..DSCF9604Cheeky little chap by Rateone, love this…..and I didn’t fall off the makeshift ladder I had to climb to get it… result!DSCF9620Fox2b, a visitor to Sheffield perhaps, I don’t know, loving this style though. DSCF9636Something a little different from Trik9, the Oak Elephant.  DSCF9652Marcus Method x Eugene Booms. Ventured into a spot where I wouldn’t normally go on my own to capture this awesomeness, needn’t have worried, place was full of photographers!DSCF9654Ghost Patrol paid a little visit to Sheffield, nice to see. DSCF9660D7606 x Martian Code, an international collaboration which I really like. DSCF9670Little rays of sunshine. DSCF9677Becoming a real fan of Ogosh, not such a bad apple at all 🙂DSCF9860 StitchKode x Bern, Suicide Bear fantastic, if slightly disturbing..DSCF9625Looks like Coloquix lady is turning to the bottle,not surprising really…

I had wondered if there would be any implications following the demolition of the so-called ‘crack den’ as the regulars there would need a new place to go. On entering this site to visit the tipsy lady above, I bumped into a group of four men, who were just leaving, all looking rather spaced, one clutching a carrier bag and another one of them dressed ….. as Batman…..

While It’s Raining…

DSCF6632 StitchDusto x Foundry x See, loving this 🙂 DSCF6630TBC 142, they may buff it off but they will return.DSCF6615 StitchTrik9 x Deap, looking good.DSCF6603Spade, visited for Tramlines, left his mark. DSCF6471Bob – The Urine Infections, ’nuff said… DSCF6850Kaze, not seen him about for a while. DSCF6869Sour, not seen him for a while either 🙁 DSCF7148 StitchMace x Gzos, staggering collab, brilliant work as always. DSCF5897Rocket01, stepping up a gear at the moment, bring it on!DSCF6464Lovely Gums, not met him but I’ve got a soft spot for his cheeky characters. DSCF6827I dunno….. made me laugh though. DSCF6704Misc…..mmmm…. very similar to…? DSCF6729Eugene Booms, feeling blue, made my day though, somehow managed to not see this on Insta, so was a wonderful surprise! DSCF6734Bine x Haste, the boys are back in town, didn’t think they’d ever left 😉 DSCF6761ABC x Peachzz psycadelic stairs. DSCF6772Wizo, seeing this around more and more. DSCF6848STOG has a clever eye for colour, lush!

Keep thinking there’s not a lot happening on the Sheffield Scene at the moment, but it is, there’s just a little more legwork to catch it all, oh well, I guess I could do with the exercise!
