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.

I dunno…

Mila Ks’ lady, looks awesome in Supersize!

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.

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 ¬†ūüôā

    

 

Smashproof at Onboard

dscf3077-stitch-1280x459Trik9 pulled off an absolute masterpiece.

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… ūüėČ

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

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!

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.

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. ¬†ūüôā ¬†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.

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…..
