In Pursuit of Rare Meat

I'd seen this mammal in RomanyWG's excellent book Out Of Sight and was pleased to find it hidden away in the Tannery. I shot some normal images straight on, but when I walked through the door Looking back I really liked the framing of this. The Deer looks startled, as if it's heard me and [...]

In Triplicate – Sea Creative

The great blue walls in the tannery provide an awesome canvas for the artists Sea Creative and Vine (right). Pretty much the whole of the factory wall is covered by the work of only three or four artists, their own private play area. The almost monotone colour set that has been chosen works really well [...]

Abandoned Art – Senso – Fallen Angel

In the warehouse somewhat hidden away was this fantastic piece by Senso, I really like this, the image really jumps out of the wall and the artist has used the environment well, the fallen angel sitting on the switches.   Click the image to see a slightly larger version or to purchase

Abandoned Art – Sea Creative – Vine

More excellent contact work from my travelling colleague. We met a couple of the artists at a secret spot in Italy, yet another vast location with a lot of excellent art. The guys have been painting here for a long time and will continue to do so. The art on the walls is outstanding some [...]

Abandoned Art – James Kalinda

My travelling colleague is a bit of a street-art collector, or more accurately hidden art, a few mails and call were exchanged and we had the location of a new spot sorted. There's something affirming and ego-less about the guys that paint in hidden and abandoned locations, great works on vast walls, not for the [...]

Reims – Iemza, Street Art

On the way back from Luxembourg we detoured through France to visit a derelict industrial compound that was due to be flattened. there were still a few buildings left, this one in particular held what we had come to see. The artist of the insect like beings is IEMZA. There's a lot of work gone [...]

Phlegm – Inside the Mind

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 [...]

Phlegm – Telescopes

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 [...]

Phlegm – Horseman

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 [...]

Sheffield – Phlegm #1

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 [...]

London Street Art – SHOK-1

This evening I went out with the express intention of shooting some images down by the Thames. I pretty much knew what and where to go to get the images I was after and managed to catch what I wanted. On the way back I remembered that there was a little secluded square on my [...]
