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!

The Hills Have Eyes And Derelict Buildings Too!

There’s always someone looking at you, particularly if Pawski’s around!

DSCF4972Nurse Agnes, a new name to me, loving this style though.                     DSCF4956Brayk, I do like a nice skull.                         DSCF4951Coloquix luscious lady inspired by Gustav Klimt, whose lavish, sexual paintings came to symbolize the art nouveau style of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. I knew that…. no I didn’t…never heard of the chap!

Muddling Through…

Apologies for the huge gap between posts but following an horrendous Christmas and New Year that I wouldn’t wish on anybody, We had to say goodbye to a very lovely person, my Mother-in-Law. She faced her mortality with the words “We’ll muddle through it”. We did, and we still are and we probably will be for some time to come.

Once again my love for graff has helped me through a very dark time, don’t know what I’d have done without it..DSCF4336Managed a couple of trips out, nice to see that Kaze had been out too.                                                                                                                          DSCF4324 Tekonta Secta, feeling a bit festive perhaps.     DSCF4319Finally got to go and see this mysterious lady with her ghostly friend, that Coloquix fellow definitely has a taste for the macabre…            DSCF4297A well old Brisk x Narke piece that I only just spotted.   DSCF4295First wonderful piece by Surge for a while…..always knew he’d be back…..!!…..

DSCF4290Mase rockin’ some awesome letters.                                                                                                        DSCF4286Don’t know who, but I like it.         DSCF4280Deap, christening new boards in town.             DSCF4259Koejack, love this, great colour combos.             DSCF4252Riseone on point as always                   DSCF4250The lovely Mr Kisk and Ryak, who was long overdue a paint!                                                                                                                  DSCF4247Cracker from Rackone TCM              DSCF4243Byne TRC, going large.                                       DSCF4240Sneaky little STOG                                     DSCF4210Defx?               DSCF4200Sexy Mars and Gzos, Dyson, Eug, Xhastexo and Homes… and a cheeky Link up top.                                                                      DSCF4195Rateone, taking bombing to a whole new level.              DSCF4179Not graff I know, but it did make me chuckle.                DSCF4150Dents x Dyson, FMB the deadly type.             DSCF4142Marcus Method, just ace.               DSCF4131Tofu to the right, Krak on the left.

I’ve got loads of photos still to sort and lots of sites to catch up on, roll on lighter evenings!

This is probably the first time that Cres has featured on this blog , I’m not a great fan of most of his work but this is impressive. What a spot!DSCF2650 StitchOgosh x Alas x Skint x Syke, hopefully not the last collaboration on this wall. DSCF2661Casper maybe?, but particularly liking the BilsDSCF2686Mist1 , old school legend and a bit of a comedian! 🙂DSCF2747 StitchBurn x Kode, brightening car parks in the city, but unfortunately often a pain to photograph because people keep parking cars in front of them…DSCF2761Prone. Saw the man himself in the middle of painting this, he said I’d like it, he was wrong, I think it’s fantastic 😀  DSCF2778Bint and Tekonta Secta walked into a bar……… I’m sure there’s a joke in there somewhere, but anyway, great to see them in one of our more salubrious hostelries.

I’d been thinking things were a bit quiet in Sheffield, but if you have a good look around, it’s as busy as ever, thankfully, don’t want my garden too tidy do I?
