Sophia…. so good

A lot of street art lately has been a total assault on the senses with large characters, bold colours and jazzy patterns all taking over walls across Cardiff.

But that’s until these latest discoveries in the Riverside part of the city which are totally understated and utilise simple techniques and colours.

The first two are located just off Neville Street and features some dancing men listening to an old grammar phone painted across a garage door.

Just a few yards from this is a facility box painted with what appears to be a pressure chart featuring some high or low pressure isobar graphs complete with some pointing arrows (what else to do arrows do???!)

A quick hop into Sophia Gardens and featured next to the previous gorilla street art is some more work all with nods towards weather and the environment.

Here featuring a mass of lightning appearing from some great swirly clouds.

And just a short wander towards the River Taff and some steps that lead you upto the Millennium Bridge and a delightful small blue ladder that aids your descent up the steep concrete steps.
