GRAFFITI-Spades ‘blob character’ used for Referendum Vote poster

Graffiti at railway bridge in Grangetown, Cardiff.
Venturing via a different route in the back-end of town and passing over this ‘well-decorated’ railway bridge – set all alone amongst an area going through huge redevelopment – located between the edge of the City Centre, Grangetown and Cardiff Bay. (Which part of Cardiff would you say this is actually within? answers on a postcard…..)

This bridge was totally covered in various graffiti ranging from tags, stickups, political comment and once again some more of these blob characters that I have unearthed around the City Centre over the past year. You can see the previous posts HERE.

You can imagine my excitement when I found that there wasn’t just a single blob but a whole family of them! There was a total of four of these characters all next to each, in various colours by graffiti artist ‘Spades.’

After all that excitement of unearthing this graffiti hotspot I then ventured across the same character being utilised on a few posters promoting people to vote in the upcoming Welsh Referendum vote taking place on 3rd March 2011. (what were the chances of that happening!) I wonder who has hi-jacked this blob character – and is he going to vote Yes or No?

  1. Well having past the same spot in the City Centre today it seems the posters have already been removed!

    I wonder if Cardiff Council now have a team which go around the City Centre removing posters and graffiti?

    There was loads of things i spotted last week that have already vanished!

  2. Try looking round cathays the Blob character is everywhere.
