Black Lives Matter

The coronavirus may have grinded down daily life across the country – but for one wall in Cardiff it still seemed like ‘business as usual’ as it had many makeovers since lockdown began in March 2020. Firstly some Cardiff-based artists painted a very powerful plea for Cardiffians to ‘Keep clean and Stay safe’ in these…

Aerosol psycho

A relatively new location in the heart of Cardiff city centre is Callaghan Square which has attracted a range of street art over the last two years. Set amongst a burgeoning business ‘quarter’ and road system – these two concrete walls have been painted by local artists Rmer, Hoxe and Unity most since the beginning….

Double decade duo

Two writers who have become some of the main players in the Cardiff street art scene are celebrating something very special with their latest paint. Cardiff based writers, Rmer and Hoxe, have painted their latest wall in Sevenoaks Park to mark their twenty years partnership of painting in the capital city of Wales. Rmer’s striking…

2019 Park Life

The first week of a new year and time for a fresh new paint to kick start 2019 in true flying colours. A range of Cardiff based street artists have painted here during 2018 with the remnants of their work still apparent in Cardiff’s Maitland Park many months later. Pictured above is work from some…

Mentalism vs Rmerism

From a distance everything may appear normal but moving past a tree that had fallen during the recent winds and some bright red lipstick seems to have been added to the Rmer piece in Sevenoaks Park. On closer inspection it appears that two red dots have been added to the eyes and some red lipstick…

Lady in blue

The first and longest legal graffiti wall in Cardiff is located at Sevenoaks Park in Grangetown and always attracts a high calibre of work. For years, going on a decade now, artists have painted the 130m long wall through each and every year – regardless of the weather! At one end of the wall it…

Skull Attack

The legal graffiti wall running alongside the River Taff near Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium had become a showcase for the city’s street art where there was one last paint before it was made to stop to make way for the UEFA Champions League Final earlier in 2017. One of the last pieces painted was this pink…

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…

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…

Welsh Language Music Day – Celf stryd

The second ever Welsh Language Music Day was held on 10th February, 2017 with the aim of celebrating and promoting music from Wales to the world. A series of events were held throughout the day with the Welsh Government working in partnership with Deezer, HMV, BBC, Grazing Shed, Spillers and others to help spread the…

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…
