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.

Sheffield Street Art Exhibition

A couple of weeks ago I was waiting for a bus when a well known Sheffield Graffiti Artist pulled up in his car and asked me if I wanted to go and have a look at a new graff/streetart project that was going on in town, so I did!

DSCF3507 DSCF3527

The idea behind it all I can’t even begin to explain but as events go, this is certainly unique.The place was already looking great.

DSCF3528 DSCF3773

The sheer amount of work involved has been staggering, but despite a few hiccups along the way, it appears that the deadline will be met and the exhibition opens on Saturday 5th December 2015.

DSCF3785 DSCF3967

The standard of work throughout is fantastic and it’s all Sheffields’ own talent on display.

DSCF3974 DSCF3959

Artists include Pawski, Shoe, Jaer, Eugene Booms, Marcus Method, MilaK, Foundry, Trik9, CoLor, Dose and more…DSCF3762¬†¬†¬†DSCF3766

Not just floor to ceiling, this includes floor and ceiling, potentially the worlds largest graffitied and painted space.

DSCF3985¬†Personally I can’t wait to see it finished. Pete Mckee, local artist and legend was on the local news tonight, he said that Sheffield is a city of culture, I believe he’s right hopefully this exhibition will prove it! Spread the word!

Hellooo!

So, I’ve been away for a while if anyone noticed, I’ve moved my blog to another host and haven’t got a clue what I’m doing, I’m sure I’ll figure it out eventually.

DSCF3485¬†I had a few days off work and decided to visit a few spots I hadn’t been to for a while. Looks like I wasn’t the only one. Freos, a visitor to Sheffield had been here too.

Goodnight Mr Heathcote

Once upon a time there was a woman who made an amazing discovery ( to her)… 0f an artist called Phlegm… and the rest, as they say, is history…

A very important part of that history evolves around one building A. R.Heathcote… ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†DSCF1628my first urbex….. . ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†DSCF6347¬†my first hidden Phlegm and Rocket01… ¬† ¬† ¬†DSCF6323my first Fauna… ¬† ¬† ¬†DSCF6333It could even be Phlegms first painting spot, got to be a very early one¬†anyway.

DSCF0171Tekonta Secta, yes really. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†¬†DSCF3340Following a partial demolition of the site, the place became a little more airy,but at least it was easier to photograph the ‘Beauty is a Beast’ in all it’s glory ūüôā ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†¬†DSCF1103The walls were still quite bare, I would visit regularly just to see if anything new had appeared.

DSCF6197Kid Acne was quite a regular visitor too.

DSCF3346But Phlegm was the busiest I think.

DSCF6641More artists began to visit the site, Perms went large.

DSCF7455The Phlegm and Rocket wall was painted over, initially with a Kid Acne x EMA x Drot collab ¬†(there were tears, I can tell you!) and then this appeared by… mmm ..I wonder…

DSCF6640Dscreet painted one of his signature owls, I was quite giddy about this.

  DSCF2554Absolutely loved this, it was ages before I knew who did it, Jay Sharples.

 DSCF2552Mr Wolf, used to be all over the place.

¬†DSCF1394Kid Acnes’ woolly mammoth¬†looking at home in the snow.

DSCF3076Colourful collaboration from Mila K and Color Art.

It was a nightmare going through photos for this, my biggest ever post, I’ll be bound to have put someone out and I apologise for that. I have 6 years of photos from this place, literally thousands. I really had a connection with it, rats,crack heads and all, and I am gutted at it’s loss.

DSCF3452  DSCF3558

I haven’t included pics from the boards or the Niche wall, they’re worthy of a post on their own though, if anyone’s interested.

Below is a link that tells you about the industrial history of Heathcotes, includes pre-graffiti pics http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/a-r-heathcote-cutlers-sheffield.t21572

Sleeep well Mr Heathcote, I for one will miss you.
