GRAFFITI – Plin face in London

Amid my latest trek to the Shoreditch area of London there was one face that kept popping up again and again, everywhere I went…. I didn’t instantly know whether they were all by one artist or by a whole host of different people but I’m assuming they are all by the artist PLIN. A quick […]

PHOTOS – Squatters take over Canton Police Station

I can never make my mind up whether things of this nature are news-worthy due to the act of perpetuating the people who carry out these actions. (I suppose graffiti has been of a similar vein over the years but without any major axe to grind – but perceptions can change!) For the last few […]

GRAFFITI – Blob whale returns to the Capital

Many years after a mysterious ‘blob whale’ began gracing the walls of Cardiff – it has made a welcome return to the City.

STREET ART – Big pink pussy in Radyr

A leisurely bike ride along the ‘Taff Trail’, which winds itself alongside the River Taff from Cardiff Bay all the way upto Brecon, where there is usually some wildlife, historic buildings and structures along this ever popular route to enjoy. Recently artwork has been added to numerous subways and tunnels but my favourite piece is […]

STREET ART – Sophia Gardens, Cardiff

A very large facility box in the corner of Sophia Gardens has previously been ‘decorated’ many times including this by Duel and others – but walking past and glancing into the area – something caught my attention. A quick detour into Sophia Gardens (well the path that run alongside what is now a glorified carpark) […]

STREET ART – See No Evil in Bristol

As a rather large City in close proximity to Cardiff I have visited the City of Bristol on many occasions but have never discovered the true delights of the street art on display…until now! Having previously visited the amazing work in Stokes Croft and over in Bedminster with the Upfest – I was surprised to […]

STREET ART – Birdseed in Manchester

A rapid walk through Manchester and an attempt to get quickly from Media City UK to Piccadilly resulted in getting four different trams, getting the last train back to Cardiff and getting home at 2am. (boy did I sleep that night!) Having not visited Manchester in recent years it was amazing to see how much […]

After many of Lembo’s colourful pussy cats popped up around Roath, Cathays and even one near Radyr – they have now taken a well deserved trip to the western side of Cardiff and brightened up the Riverside area of the city. A boring green facility box located next to the old Wells public house has […]

GRAFFITI – Belgrade, Serbia

I wasn’t expecting much from the capital city of Serbia – Belgrade. But how did a visit to Serbia’s biggest city totally win me over? Sat on the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers this quirky, battered city didn’t seem to have much to offer. At first what appeared to be an endless grey […]
