I will eat you!

At the start of 2013 artist Squid took to the Elm Street lanes in the Roath part of the city to create another masterpiece. The myriad of walls and doors makes it a great places to paint amongst all the varied textures of brick, stone and rendered walls. (Throw in some wooden doors too) Painting…

Walkaway walkaway

The Millennium Walkway has attracted many official pieces of art over the years and also some unofficial ones too! A decision was recently made to allow the very long blue wall to showcase works from local artists. Backing onto the Cardiff Arms Park and the Millennium Stadium at one end of the wall a whole…

Sevenoaks Park Summer 2015

One of the many legal walls in Cardiff and one that is regularly updated – sometimes on a daily basis – is located just off Sloper Road in the Grangetown part of the city. Here are some pics taken from when Summer occurred in Cardiff (yes THAT day!) and made the already colourful street art…

Blondie bombshell

A totally striking piece of street art that was painted back in 2012 but with no certainty that it had survived or was still intact now in 2015 – also the location was still a bit of a mystery. Photographs of this beauty have been circulating online for a few years now but has always…

The jam that keeps on giving

Back in October 2014 the Empty Walls Street Jam took place with artists and writers arriving from all across Cardiff with some further afield from Bristol and Birmingham – all primed ready to paint on the hoardings surrounding the vacant Western Mail and Echo site near the Millennium Stadium.

Fenced off for summat

A stone’s throw from Cardiff Castle and almost cut off due to Obama and the Nato Summit being in town for a couple of hours – it felt like the city was totally spliced by a huge fence that surrounded certain areas for the majority of a month. The city was on lockdown, 10,000 police…

Tom and Co at SevenOaks Park

A brief amble through Grangetown’s Sevenoaks Park revealed a mass of new bright street art adorning the 300 foot long graffiti wall. Due to the huge size of the canvas this wall really is a mecca for street art in Cardiff and attracts a variety of tagging, throw-ups and more character-based street art. Local writer…

Substation graffiti in Ely

Set amongst nettles and trees in the corner of Ely’s racecourse is a brick electricity substation building. Due to the remoteness of the structure it has been a canvas for graffiti and tagging over many years and is captured below. Some of the tags must be years old now and feature the likes of Dork,…

Anti Vincent Tan street art in Cardiff

What great timing for some topical street art to appear in Sevenoaks Park just days before a protest march of Cardiff City fans is planned – the art illustrates how some fans are feeling since the current owner took over at Cardiff City Football Club. Just a short distance from the Cardiff City Stadium –…

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.
