Sevenoaks Park street art and graffiti

An unscheduled trip to Cardiff’s Sevenoaks Park to discover a lot of new work appearing along nearly the whole length of the bricked wall.

Featuring works from Dybe, NFS and the No Frills crew.
Admitting defeat in decyphering all the names – if there’s any you know then please send them in!

On the left hand side of the 300 foot wall was some other new pieces painted over both levels of the wall.

Whilst taking these pics a writer approached and started working over the exact piece being photographed.

Quite speedily he whipped out his box of aerosols and instantly began with an outline in light pink before rapidly adding in some stronger pink circles.

The Midlands based artist then filled in the large letters spelling out his name ‘COMS’ and then added some yellow edging and background.

This was then followed by a blue outline and drop shadow around each letter – a spider web was then also added to the letter C.

Literally in a matter of minutes this was beginning to take shape rather nicely!

Next up were some details and lines using a teal colour followed by a few highlights and the date in white.

It’s always amazing to watch someone hard at work but this was totally intense for 10-15 minutes and then it was complete.

Speeding painting indeed!
