Birmingham graffiti and street art roundup

A brief walk around the Digbeth area of Birmingham is always a delight to see what are the latest additions to the ever growing graffiti and street art scene here.

There was only half an hour before the train departed so this REALLY was a whistle stop ‘tour’ of the area.

Beginning down Bordersley Street and quickly onto Little Ann Street where it was great to see how all these old bricked buildings were a fantastic place to showcase this artwork.

Numerous tall warehouses and workshops littered the whole area with this Yeti character appearing on one whilst these faces by Corpse appeared near by.

Such an interesting area to have massive bricked railway arches throughout and also canals running below aswell – all creating more places for artwork!

Which leads us neatly onto The Custard Factory area which seems to be the heart of creativity and a mecca for really high quality street art including this by Omeza, Corpse and ‘Never ready’ by Philth.

Located fairly near The Custard Factory were a few open spaces, derelict areas and car parks which seem to welcome graffiti and street art of any kind.

Here some devillish mice lurk in a corner of a car park whilst no wall is out of bounds with that face being painted onto a ridiculously tall chimney (rather them than me!)
