Bobbing up everywhere

After a massive Bob Marley painting recently appeared in Gremlin Alley which was the latest in line of Bob Marley related artwork around the city – it seemed there was some Bob Marley work already located around the city. First up – set in Riverside and around the corner from the old Wells Hotel, is…

Paste-up City at Cardiff City Stadium

Positioned outside Cardiff City Stadium and set on rotting white hoardings ready for another Lidl to be build on the vacant site within – local artist Lembo has on the outside created a wall of paste-ups!

Lembo pussy poster in Riverside

Set in the Riverside area of Cardiff this is the latest addition from Lembo – a 3ft pussycat brightening up a rather decaying phonebox. Sitting rather proudly on Clare Street the pussy now has the name of ‘Bili’ which is sprawled above. The pussy is coloured orange and pink and stares into the nearby hairdressers….

Big pink pussy in Radyr

A leisurely bike ride along the ‘Taff Trail’, which winds itself alongside the River Taff from Cardiff Bay all the way upto Brecon, where there is usually some wildlife, historic buildings and structures along this ever popular route to enjoy.

Lembo hits Riverside

After many of Lembo’s colourful pussy cats popped up around Roath, Cathays and even one near Radyr – they have now taken a well deserved trip to the western side of Cardiff and brightened up the Riverside area of the city. A boring green facility box located next to the old Wells public house has…

New work in Cathays and Roath

It was time to take another trawl around the ‘creative’ areas of Cathays and Roath (ok it’s where all the students live and they seem to accept and produce street art a lot more than the rest of Cardiff!) This time beginning at Cathays Community Centre and some amazing pieces from the locals including a…

Wales Biggest Sticker Combo

I’m not entirely sure where to start with this post but it has become an ever increasing part of Cities around the World to not only include tagging, graffiti and amazing street art but also now the introduction of stickers too. It may seem a little mundane BUT when a lot of these stickers are…

Lembo work around Cathays and Roath

Ever walked along a street around Roath, Cathays and even the City Centre and spotted a small cat lurking on a lampost or street sign? Well it’s probably by local street artist Lembo. I don’t actually know anything else about this character apart from to say that they predominently feature cats, stencils and the odd…
