Made in Roath 2015

New Graffiti on the Andrew Buchan

further work 1

Made in Roath is an annual arts festival that takes place each October showcasing various forms of art, music, performance, literature and food across the district of Roath.

Art, and more importantly street art, plays a vital role here with local artists joining in the festival and providing street art and other works around the neighbourhood during the month long event.

Here local artist Spk has painted on the side of The Andrew Buchan pub on Arabella Street just off Albany Road and luckily a local photographer captured the progress of the work.

Rhymney Logo

The Rhymney Brewery has its origins in the great days of the South Wales iron industry and began operating in 1839 with Andrew Buchan as its manager.

On the left hand side of the wall you can see the progress of the brewery building with a fox emerging on a wooden horse inside an old beer barrel.

Taking inspiration from the Rhymney Brewery logo here the artist has reversed all the roles and had a bit of fun with the logo.
It seems the badger originally had a horn but was replaced by a gun! (Love that tattoo.)

Thankfully local photographer Terry Matthews had been capturing each stage of the work where it perfectly illustrates the huge amount of time and effort that goes into each piece of street art around Cardiff.

Taking centre stage is the main ‘Made in Roath’ logo complete with a huntmans running as fast as he can as the fox chases him – where some may say he has more than a passing resemblance to Mayor of London Boris Johnson!

So many different parts to this piece including an owl, a boxing moose and even a frog all awaiting the huntsman.
