The last Bank Holiday weekend in August usually attracts an event to Cardiff city centre and on this occasion there wasn’t just one but two big events.
First was the annual Hub Festival held throughout the venues in and around Womanby Street plus it was the same weekend that Cardiff Pride was also being held.
What a combination and what a great excuse to add some very colourful street art to the city!
A very bright, pink and colouful wall sat opposite the City Arms pub with a pink Care bear (?) perched on one end of a unicorn styled horse – complete with the gay flag colours sublty blended into it’s tail.
The iconic creature straddled both ends of wildstyle writing from Karm and Smaktown in vibrant pink colourings.
The weather on the Saturday was rather sunny but the total opposite was true for the Sunday with very little painting occurring.
It’s unfortunate that a lot of the pieces were never finished and not signed by the artist – but this fantastic piece was by Sledone.
Opposite this was a lot more work along the whole length of the small cobbled street of Womanby Street – here local photographer, Keyo Langford, captured the Hub Festival sign being painted.
A total washout and a totally deserted street but further along and some more unfinished work in pink, purple and blue hues.
Such a great street to feature some of Cardiff’s street art talent with this cut-up beauty below.
The whole street was deserted but still featured a great ‘Hub-Pub’ and even more work infont of the carpark by Auto and Amok.
It’s always great to see a mashup between festivals with new, brash street art making it’s way onto the streets of Cardiff – even if it is a crazy unicorn horse thang?!
