Super Mario World

Cardiff’s longest serving legal graffiti wall in the Grangetown part of the capital has always attracted a wide variety of street art over the years.

And 2019 is no different as the ever changing 130m wall has recently been given a Nintendo makeover featuring the classic Mario Land / Super Mario World.

Taking over a large portion of the wall in Sevenoaks Park all the familiar elements from the classic games are here including the bonus cubes, Toad, the Princess and Mario himself.

Everything has been re-created so accurately with spot-on colours and imagery.

The artists have painted their names in the same huge bright colours – does anyone know who painted this beauty?

There was lots of other new work appearing here too – the next featuring the characters from Henry’s Cat.

Then further along work from the ever growing Cardiff faithful with contributions from Vosie, Ceres and Ozer to name a few!

A much whiter range of work was contained in one corner featuring a huge roller which has since been added to along with latest work from Zevo and Jams.
