After searching through the archives I came across this shot - Its a pretty straight forward image and not the most interesting I must admit, however it was nice and easy to produce for a Sunday morning. We'd actually gone to do some graf hunting, looking for a pigs arse of all things, which we [...]
Here's some more Phlegm from the hotel!
Some more work by Phlegm
Here's another one from Phlegm, this is a fairly large piece and you can see that the artist doesn't do things by halves, it's HUGE! However despite the overall size of the piece the detail is amazing. We were lucky enough to see this on a lovely clear day and although the blue sky is [...]
Just outside Sheffield is a disused filterhouse, it's a haven for creatives and their excellent art. I was lucky enough to meet one of the artists here as he was working on a new piece. It's over six months since I've been here and was amazed to see that the walls have changed - such [...]
I recently took a trip up to Sheffield with my friend RomanyWG. We wanted to check out a hotel that we knew was in the process of demo and had some cool street art. Luckily we had one of the artists with us which made things a little easier. I really think that we would [...]
The tool makers was covered - wall to wall on all floors with cupboards and cubby holes where product would have been stored. There must have been some very knowledgeable people here who could actually manage to find things quickly.The floor all over is covered in pigeon poo! The image is processed with photomatix for [...]
Our trips to Sheffield weren't all hunting for cool graf in the city. We had another location to try and search out. The tool makers was established here in the 1860's and closed around 10 years ago. The owners manufactured tools for cutting of leather and tools for making shoes. The location was very [...]
Thornseat Lodge is on the border of the Yorkshire moors, built in 1855 as a shooting and hunting lodge, it was converted to a childrens home in the 1830s and remained as such for 50 years. Apparently vacated in the 80's it has been left to rot since. The building is one of the most [...]
Another from the telescope fixates Phlegm, this time an exterior image painted on the side of a derelict building.
A recurring theme in Phlegms work is the use of telescopes - really cool telescopes that go around corners and allow the viewers eye to shine out of the other end - this was placed nicely in a window frame. I've processed this fairly heavily using Nik Filters and Focal Point with a good dose [...]
Finally catching up with 'stuff' after a couple of weeks out of the game dealing with real world work and life. Here's one from an abandoned school / chapel in Sheffield. Another Phlegm piece. Perfectly placed on a back wall amongst the decay and dereliction. Click the image for the full size image and rest [...]
The first location we visited in Sheffield was an abandoned filter house, I believe that it was originally something to do with the local water company. The water tanks are long gone though and the building appears to be used by the local artists as their canvas. There is little tagging in here and the [...]
Final of the three in the series - more great work in my opinion. I'll let the pictures do the talking . . . Click the images to see larger, the gallery or to purchase.
Here's the second work of art in the triptych, same artist - Phlegm. I believe that this was the first of the three painted - its really rather nice - very whimsical. and rather charming. I'll not say too much about the shots and let the images speak for themselves. As always my images are [...]
This weekend Viveca and I took a long drive up to Sheffield - Steel City to check some amazing street art by Phlegm. We'd both seen his work online and were keen to see it for real. You don't have to pay to go to go to a gallery like these, just a bit of [...]
