Street Art Sheffield is a website celebrating the Steel City's street art scene. Since 2014, we've been documenting and mapping out the many artworks to be found across the city. These include feature walls, paste-ups, shutter art and painted boardings.

Sheffield is an industrial, green and creative city in the north of England. It can be found in South Yorkshire on the edge of the beautiful Peak District. It is famed for its steel industry, and Harry Brearley invented stainless steel here.

Many will know Sheffield from the hugely successful 90s film, The Full Monty, which depicts the city during the decline of the steelworks. However, the city has since re-invented itself and is home to a large creative community.

Amongst the derelict industrial buildings, the graffiti scene began to flourish. Many now internationally recognised artists like Phlegm, Faunagraphic and Kid Acne started out by transforming these spaces with their art.

Today, street art can be found everywhere in Sheffield. New artists regularly emerge on the scene; and Sheffield has attracted talent from further afield, for example the likes of Nano 4814, Frau Isa, Will Barras and JupiterFab.
