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!

So Birmingham, it’s worth a visit, seriously.

Birmingham City of Colours

So me and my little dog (who had chronic wind by the way!) got on a train to Birmingham to see what all this City of Colours business was all about. I have to say that not having been to Brum on a graff mission before I was instantly pleasantly surprised and actually veered off the COC path for a couple hours looking at all there was to see, and there was a lot, I’ll cover that in a separate post.  DSCF3770This lovely lady by N4T4 was the first official COC piece that I saw.DSCF4001 StitchThis wonderful board wall was not an ‘official’ part of COC but hey it’s not a bad thing that everyone wanted to be involved.DSCF4022 StitchTizer and Gent 48 among others joined in the fun.DSCF4046The amazing work of Jimmy C, I’ve never seen it up close before, stunning.DSCF4047Dscreet, love all his work but my favourites are the owls.DSCF4058Spotted at the Custard Factory.DSCF4070Everywhere I turned there was a wall being painted.DSCF4101 StitchNHS crew.DSCF4111Corpse, the largest one I’ve seen.DSCF4125Loved this ladys’ work apologies for not knowing her name.DSCF4148Philth, on form as always.DSCF4154The Stencil Shed, not his real name, and I didn’t see a stencil either.DSCF4158Ennui, gutted I didn’t get to see this finished.DSCF4167 StitchMore awesomeness.DSCF4172I’m sure he didn’t do all of this with a pen.DSCF4357Skema, paintaholic  🙂DSCF4383Enzime, really like this.DSCF4390Bill Giles and PM(?)DSCF4410Andy Council, sponsored by Mr Whippy 😉DSCF4445Steve Edwards beautiful study of Kingfishers playing leapfrog.DSCF4453Lost Souls epic production.DSCF4456 StitchSPZero76, not just a figment of my Instagram!DSCF4461 StitchMade You Look, yes it did.DSCF4463Lisk Bot, very fond of these handsome robots.DSCF4480Rmer1, blooming marvellous.DSCF4482Loved this…DSCF4496….and this…DSCF4507Si2, I’m sure he’d not arrived by the time I went home, but he must have been there somewhere.DSCF4529Delightfully different.DSCF4192CoLor, Eug, Corpse and Tekonta Secta fantastic collaboration.DSCF4177Privileged to see Hoakser in action.DSCF4412 StitchTitle and Jim Vision, I’m running out of superlatives!DSCF4532Mila Ks’ luscious ladies guarding the entrance to the Custard Factory….

….There was more, much more, so much I didn’t even get to see all of it. For a first attempt I would say this was a roaring success, and City of Colours 2 is already booked in for next September. Congratulations to the organisers for a spectacular event. I’m sure I’ll be back, not sure about the dog though, had to sit in the bike racks on the train home…

City Roundup

Bit of a mishmash this one of random shots and spots from the rather large, like this spectacular huge Booms piece….

…To this little Angry Face which is less than 3″x 3″. I’m very fond of the one with the Angry Face, he’s literally run through Sheffield with his angular buddy….

… the wonderfully anarchistic Lisk Bot whose appliance looking type Robots are apparently working on world domination.

Not so much world domination, but Mr Wolf is still taking over the city one wall at a time.

Mila Ks’ beautiful character is going through a short lived blue phase.

This is a close up of a peacock by Fauna Graphic. The whole piece is wonderful which I think is clear when just one part of it looks so stunning.

I’ve started to notice that my graffiti walks are getting longer,there seems to be more places to look for cracking urban art, good times.
