Nottingham's Creative Quarter Street Art


At the beginning of March I took a trip down to Nottingham to see how the street art scene had changed since my last visit (which admittedly was far too long ago). Now several weeks into the pandemic triggered lockdown, it almost seems like I imagined travelling outside of Sheffield so recently to another city.

Women of Sheffield's Street Art Scene

It’s International Women’s Day today, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to celebrate some of the talented women who have contributed to Sheffield’s street art scene over the last few years.

Discovering Norwich's Vibrant Street Art Scene

A couple of weeks ago, shortly after Christmas, we visited the beautiful city of Norwich to take my little niece and nephew to the pantomime. I hadn’t been to Norwich for many years, so what surprised me on this visit was the abundance of street art.

The Bears of Sheffield Are Coming

Good news for fans of 2016’s Herd of Sheffield art trail, next summer will see a new trail of sculptures appear across Sheffield. The Children’s Hospital Charity has announced that the Bears of Sheffield will be arriving in the city from July 2020. The aim is to raise money for the Cancer and Leukaemia ward, a very worthy cause.

Five Years of Street Art Sheffield

Today marks the fifth anniversary of Street Art Sheffield. I can hardly believe it’s been five years since I first launched the website. The site now has well over a thousand photos of street art and graffiti taken across Sheffield (and Rotherham). Thank you to everyone who has visited, supported and promoted Street Art Sheffield over those years. It has given me a great deal of motivation to continue developing the site knowing how much people have been enjoying using it. Particularly over the course of the last 12 months I have been approached by a number of people who have told me how much they love what this site has been doing for the city’s street art scene.

The Last Day of Kid Acne's Have a Word

I managed yesterday, despite the heavy rain, to make my way to the final day of Kid Acne’s Have a Word exhibition in Sheffield. It seems somewhat fitting that his first major solo show in the city was hosted at the S1 Artspace located in the centre of Park Hill where the artist has contributed many times over the years to its street art.

After the Giants

Phlegm’s Mausoleum of the Giants has closed, his giants finally put to rest. It has easily been one of the most remarkable events that Sheffield has ever hosted. Who could ever have imagined people queuing for up to three/four hours for an art exhibition in our city?
