Anytime is haus time

Printhaus, Cardiff

Set amongst some fantastic workshops just off Llandaff Road in Canton is The Printhaus which houses many creatives, artist studios and a large print workshop.

A warren of red bricked buildings worm their way around the site and act as a fantastic canvas for all to paint.

Local artist and illustrator Lucy Dickson is the latest in a long line of talent to help spruce up the area.

After studying illustration in Cardiff Lucy has based herself at a workshop in The Printhaus where she now produces screen prints and other products.

Lucy has painted this abstract pattern to the ageing exterior of the red bricked walls and it really does have a dramatic impact as you enter the site.

This now sits proudly next to a giant bird sliding down a stairway as painted by Colour Doomed back in 2014.

Previously next to this was a delightful wall by Peaceful Progress who painted a very large piece across some wooden hoardings in an oriental style which featured two Japanese ladies in colourful attire.

Around another twist and turn of the quirky site is a wall featuring work from some unknown artists – anyone know who created these beauties?

And further along down a small alley at the back of one of the buildings is some striking work from artist Zexe.

Zexe has painted this lady with bright red blood flowing from her mouth and used the same colour for the signature too!

And finally more work from Zexe featuring a monochrome piece of a girl pointing a gun.

Once again a signature from Zexe in the corner.
I wonder what could be around the next corner?

Lurking behind a fence on the side of The Printhaus is some spooky work from local artist Ekstraternek who’s black and white creature which originally spanned the two floors.

The Printhaus and it’s surrounding grounds are well worth a visit to unearth some great street art that is constantly changing and reflecting the wide variety of artists that visit and that are resident at the site.
