Hunting for street art is one of my favourite things to do in a new city. I even did it in Reykjavik.
I wish I could create a Sheffield street art map but I didn’t drop a pin in a single location. But just wandered around the Sheffield university area (I think). Basically I parked my car on street, hoped I remembered where I parked it and followed the street signs to the Winter Gardens. These are the ones I spotted along my route.
These 3 pieces were all together, I guess in a find one find them all kinda thing. I did however almost miss the birds on the wall. And really Sheffield Womens Lib … did you really need to tag this? I don’t think you did. Is there a difference between ‘street art’ and graffiti? I think there maybe. Without hitting up my old friend google, I see graffiti more as a nuisance. A badly written tag or something that destroys property in a negative way. Such as covering signs, maybe this makes me old?
Street art doesn’t have to be spray paint I don’t think, this is fun isn’t it, I don’t even have a GCSE in art. I just like things that catch my eye and grab my interest. A plain brick wall wouldn’t of. It also stopped me looking at the run down building it was attached too. Also the dodgy looking tag that it seems to be hiding.
Lets ya know end on a controversial one.
