Following our Tea & Street Art post we thought we’d show you some of the street art you can find around Sheffield, so you get the picture 🙂
These are just a handful of the hundreds of superb pieces adorning the Sheffield landscape, from just a few of the many amazing artists out there. Sorry if we’ve not featured your work – it’s not personal. Give us a shout and we will!
A couple of the snaps are old, so the art isn’t around anymore, some snaps are new, some snaps are borrowed, courtesy of the wonderful Street Art Sheffield website. There’s even a blue one. Colour. Not, like, porn.
A new mural by Kid Acne on the side of a building overlooking Wellington Street Car Park, Sheffield City Centre.
Internationally acclaimed, Sheffield based artist Phlegm, on the outside of the Rutland Pub (Tea Maestro Marc’s favourite pub in town. Well, one of a couple…)
Local artist (and legend) Pete McKee’s mural on the outside of Fagan’s Pub, Broad Lane. (Marc’s other favourite pub…)
Another Kid Acne mural outside of Sheffield City Centre.
There are a few Rocket01 murals like this around Sheffield and this Darwin one is a belter.
Mural by Jo Peel on the outside of Haggler’s Corner, a great space for yoga and events with an awesome little cafe.
Kid Acne strikes again, this time on the outside of Pina Bar in Neepsend. Image courtesy of Street Art Sheffield.
Mural of Sir David Attenborough by Rocket01 at Brown Lane
This has been there as long as Marc’s been alive. Bang in the centre of town, things have changed since this was created!
Kid Acne Unemployed Gods at Parkhill Flats – the original “Streets in the Sky” and protected by their listed status. Parkill is generally disliked as a blight on the skyline but is being redeveloped in a gentrification process currently.
Another Phlegm mural in the archway at APG Works on Silver St.
Harry Brearley – one of Sheffield’s finest – the man who invented Stainless Steel, is commemorated on the back of The Howard pub by Faunagraphic.

More of the artwork at The Hubs
One of the most famous Phlegm murals in the centre of Sheffield.
Another Rocket01 piece of Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, near to the Sir David Attenborough piece
Oldschool street art! This steelworker made of bricks was commissioned in the 1980s.
This art was painted on some boards where the old Republic Nightclub, where Marc spent most of his youth (later called Gatecrasher1) once stood. Now fancy appartments.
More Phlegm adorning the glass doors onto a balcony at the Millennium Gallery
This Phlegm piece is round the back of the now closed Rare & Racy shop. The best book & record store ever.
