Finding Amazing Street Art in Sheffield

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.
