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?

Wandering Amongst Phlegm's Sleeping Giants

It was hard not to get excited when the news first broke that Phlegm would be returning to Sheffield to put on an exhibition. For an artist that has become so well known internationally for his distinctive and highly detailed street art it is perhaps a surprise that this is only his second ever exhibition. Although born in North Wales, Sheffield was for a long time Phlegm’s home town. As a result many walls about the city are adorned with his fantastical illustrations. So whilst he may have moved on it was great to see him return to Sheffield for this event.

Gavin Kilcommons' Art House Exhibition

Wham

There’s a great exhibition of pop art by Gavin Kilcommons in the Art House just off Division Street at the moment. This exhibition has been on for a while, but I finally took some pictures of Gavin’s fantastic works the other week and wanted to share them here.

Yesterday afternoon I headed over to Magna in Rotherham to see Sheffield artist Pete McKee’s latest exhibition 6 Weeks to Eternity with my partner. It’s his largest exhibition to date and was definitely worth the trip. It’s only on for two days (14th and 15th May) so if you’re reading this on the morning of the 15th and haven’t been yet, get over there quick!
