A favourite is definitely this great wall from Sweet Toof and Paul Insect, some wonderful painting by Conor Harrington, another visit from Sheffield artist Phlegm and new stabby women paste ups by Kid Acne and plenty more. There really is too much to talk about here, […]

We have also seen work going up by Colombian artist Bastardilla over the last couple of weeks, painting […]

On large scale paintings with intricate details, religious messages are replaced by Sickboy’s own symbolism and psychedelic world with a positive twist. A resident pastor appears […]
