Strolling and Street Art in Sheffield


We went to Yorkshire Cosplay Con in Sheffield a few weeks ago so Phillip could do his thing and take lots of awesome cosplay photos (check out his ColobusYeti Instagram feed to see some of his work!). He got two press passes so I went along as the plus one. Now I like a little manga, anime and sci-fi, 2 days of it though is kinda not my thing. So one of the days I took myself exploring the streets of Sheffield so I could see some of its famed street art. Visual art means lots of photos and not so many words…a change from many of my posts. Hope you enjoy!

Even the skips are arty!



Sylvester Street car park:



Arundel Street:




Here I found a suitable arty place to stop for lunch called ‘The Holt‘ where I had a rather scrumptious TLT (smoked tofu, lettuce and tomatoes with vegan mayo) and a lovely soy cappuccino.



Street art is not for everyone and some will see this as plain old grafitti possibly. I’m not a fan of someone simply lazily spraying their name without any real effort put in to it. This though felt like it gave character and life to this part of Sheffield and I for one loved it.

  1. Thank you for letting me know about this post! I really enjoyed it. Mt oldest son used to do Street Art- it was amazing work and one approved piece won an award- he was also arrested for ‘expressing himself’ on the side of a train. Kids. He is now a working artist who lives in New York. Its been quite a journey for him!

    • Thank you for coming over to take a look at my post! There is so much amazing street art in Sheffield – I could have spent days exploring it all. Your son’s work sounds amazing (apart from the arrest!) and so cool that it has led to him working as an artist in New York! Have you ever put any of his work on your blog? I’d love to see it!
