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.

I dunno…

Rocket01 surreal traffic stopper.

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 ┬á­čÖé

    

 

Carpe Diem – Seize The Day

Doses’ touching tribute to his friend Jack Edwards.

Breaks my heart this..

This month (August) saw the tragic loss of one of my favourite artists Kosy, formerly known as Kosy the Crackhead. A large piece of his could be seen as you rolled into Leeds train station. His stickers were all over the place and he painted in Sheffield a number of times. I only met him once, at a Sharrow Jam, I was a proper fan girl and he was lovely. He gave me some stickers too.

Absolutely gutted at his passing, my thoughts are with his family and friends.

 

Never waste a moment, you never know how many you have got…

Seeing Double

As it stands I’m now about 5-6months behind with my blog posts, but you know what, it’s actually quite liberating. I’m beyond racing to catch up, instead I get a little rush of nostalgia as I get to look back. If anyone’s still reading, you might enjoy it too…

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… ­čśë

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