GRAF-‘Enta’ legal art opposite Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff.

Graffiti in Canton
There is a small legal wall featuring various pieces of art opposite Chapter Arts Centre in Canton, Cardiff.

It’s essentially a small wall at the side of someone’s house who have allowed artwork to be displayed there.

The first piece sprung up back in December in 2010 and was of a cute little chav girl – but it seemed like they were interupted mid-flow when Rhodri Morgan and other dignatories passed!

The piece was painted over in January 2011 and replaced in a total contrast to the previous chav girl! A much more refined character exercising on a medicine ball?

I really do like the way that each design covers the previous but also leave a hint of what was previously there!

Fast forward to early July and a design featuring two horses and the tag line “Cosmic mates” – loads of love hearts and even more amazing colours.

And finally in late July it was amended replacing the horses with a rose and leaf. All of these were produced by local artist Enta and you can see more of her work on Flickr.

Are there any i’ve missed out? Does anyone know anymore about this project or wall? Get in touch!

  1. I’ve seen a few of these over the past few months – they’re really good. As for the “Cosmic Mates” tag – I can’t help but think of the the old Howling Sleepers track of the same name. The Howling Sleepers used to play chapter regularly at Chapter (the old downstairs bar) back in the early 90s and they’d always start with “Cosmic Mates”. Fun times.

  2. Thanks for your comments Howard! I wonder whether there is any connection or relevance what is being painted on this wall! The Cosmic Mates link is an interesting angle on it all!
    Cant wait to see what is painted throughout the rest of this year!
