Born in North Wales but now residing in Sheffield, Phlegm is a cartoonist and illustrator known for his self-published comics and amazing graffiti and street art.
It was great to hear that Phlegm was to pay his first official visit to paint in Cardiff as part of the Empty Walls festival.
The event invited 12 local and international artists to transform the streets of Cardiff to bring colour, culture and vibrancy to the city.
Phlegm continually seems to be travelling all around the world spreading his huge pieces featuring large, quirky creatures on buildings, vehicles, structures and derelict areas throughout the planet!
From afar I could see a glimpse of a huge piece of art nestling amongst a busy City Road in Cardiff. I couldn’t wait to see exactly what Phlegm had created on the side of this pub!
And here it is in all it’s glory – The national symbol of Wales (The Dragon) meticulously painted across this huge canvas.
Check out a whole host of other national and international artists that took part in the Empty Walls festival including 3Dom, Run and Helen Bur at the following link. https://diffgraff.wordpress.com/emptywalls
