Brummie Paste-ups

A lot of cities have their fair share of street art and graffiti but not all feature paste-ups that much – cue Birmingham!

Here there seemed to be an abundance of paste-ups throughout the Digbeth area of the city. Set around the buildings on Floodgate Street, Green Street and Little Anne Street – they quite innocently bring a lot of interest to these ageing red bricked buildings.

A few designs seem to pop up again and again namely from Fok, Mathechor and Liskbot. (And still a few old D7606 lying about!)
There was a variety of ‘colourful face paste-ups’ identified as Thirteen Skulls (thanks to KyberHai) dotted around the City.

And lastly these delightful paper animals on Little Ann Street. Well not THAT delightful as it pictures a fox chasing a small bunny rabbit – more great work by Annatomix!

      Uh, no problem. But you credited me by my email address rather than my id? Other names in your pics are Setdebelleza, Jekyll Ink, Rebel Gunslingers, Mssdcnnctn, Smegg & C3.
      Likewise, I still need to get back to see all the finished stuff from City of Colours 🙂
