Roadside Craic

A once busy, bustling area of Cardiff full of warehouses, garages and industrial units. (Would you call this area Grangetown or Leckwith?) But recently a lot of car showrooms have moved elsewhere in the city and now the area has become a bit neglected thus resulting in some large hoardings being erected around the vacant…

Suns out, cans out

As we saunter into Summer and the days are becoming much longer – meaning more time to paint and more time to saunter around and capture some of the great work adorning the walls of Cardiff. A legal wall for many years now is located in the Grangetown area of the city and stretches 300m…

Millennium Walk away

After proudly showcasing street art and graffiti on a long wall near the Millennium Stadium for the last couple of years … it was now time for change … apparently! We know that all good things must come to an end but here Cardiff Council have slapped signs all over the street art announcing the…

Cruel Vapours in Little Cardiff

A post Christmas and New Year blow out to set 2017 off with a bang… and a few bangers from the Cardiff faithful and a meeting with a few from Bristol too. It almost seems a yearly occurrence now for the Wales and West crew painting near the Principality Stadium in Cardiff City Centre. A…

Park Street makeover

This stretch running parrellel to Wood Street and next to the now named Principality Stadium is called Park Street and this is how it looked near the end of 2016. New boards were erected during 2016 due to bad weather causing them to be blown over. Brand new boards, brand new work! So a range…

Check Mait

Nestling near Cardiff’s Gabalfa flyover is a hidden park named Maitland Park. A very long wall makes it’s way around the perimeter and acts as a great canvas for some street art and graffiti. As the start of Summer beckons some new work adorns the walls in the park starting with some pieces by Rim,…

New Year, New Paint

Whilst construction work gathers a pace around Central Square in the city centre it’s good to know that the Cardiff faithful are still helping brighten up these areas whilst everything else is undergoing such radical change. Set behind St David’s House on Wood Street and next to The Principality Stadium, the artists took to these…

View some of the original art…

Five star

Loitering at the far end of Roath’s Albany Road, before it all goes a bit posh with endless detached houses, is the latest work from a group of Cardiff’s graffiti and street artists. Set on what used to be a garage or petrol station (probably both over the years!) whilst work goes on inside –…

Gorfjam 2014

A wander into Grangetown’s Sevenoaks Park revealed a whole host of brand new graffiti on the 140m legal wall that runs along the perimeter of the city’s park.
