The legal graffiti wall attracts a range of artists from Cardiff and beyond – featuring a range of abilities and styles – some are old-timers whereas newer artists use the wall to test out and develope their own unique style.

Above relatively new-comer Rasp sits alongside established Rmer and recently the wall has attracted more newbies like Mr 1c and others which are undecipherable! (is that SXT?)

Whereas the wall attracts what is considered street artists who paint elaborate words, tags, characters and just about anything with traditional spray cans – the wall can also attract artists from outside this field with a few choosing to use paint, brushes and some other items as their medium of choice.

A small meeting of a few artists from either side of the Bristol Channel included Annika Wilkinson, Jee See, Unity & Miller.

And lastly a striking piece featuring a human octopus deep in thought by artist Object… also from Bristol who is a mixed media artist developing an aesthetic of the found and upcycled.

Utilising paint throughout this piece but look more closely and you can see that pads and other items have been used to create patterns and effects for the work.
