STREET ART – Phlegm Dragon in Cardiff


Born in North Wales but now residing in Sheffield, Phlegm is a cartoonist and illustrator known for his self-published comics and amazing graffiti and street art.

It was great to hear that Phlegm was to pay his first official visit to paint in Cardiff as part of the Empty Walls festival.

The event invited 12 local and international artists to transform the streets of Cardiff to bring colour, culture and vibrancy to the city.

Phlegm continually seems to be travelling all around the world spreading his huge pieces featuring large, quirky creatures on buildings, vehicles, structures and derelict areas throughout the planet!

Empty Walls: Phlegm
From afar I could see a glimpse of a huge piece of art nestling amongst a busy City Road in Cardiff. I couldn’t wait to see exactly what Phlegm had created on the side of this pub!

And here it is in all it’s glory – The national symbol of Wales (The Dragon) meticulously painted across this huge canvas.

Just look at all the detail that has gone into this piece – from the detail in the face to that crushing foot!
