I heard that Sheffield-based street artist Phlegm was mid-mural on Holywell Lane in Shoreditch today, so I popped down at lunch time to see what was going on…
This is going to be seriously cool.
I saw him paint once before, those dreads have grown some!
He looks so cool, doesn’t he? 🙂

You are getting some really great graffiti shots. Well done.
Thank you! I get lucky sometimes! 🙂

I”ve never reblogged before but I thought this post deserved it. From picturing England – great shots of a mural in progress in Shoreditch
Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Great shots and nice to see he’s working away from Sheffield again. You never know where he’ll pop up. We are spoiled in Sheffield with lots of his wonderful artwork all over.. This looks like a huge wall. I’m constantly amazed at the level of detail he puts even in his large scale murals. Wonderful stuff. I’ve a lot of Phlegms work on my Postcard Cafe blog. Thanks for sharing your images. Best wishes, PC
Yeah, it is a massive wall, and it’s fascinating to see what different artists do with it – it’s constantly changing. I was amazed by the detail too – he was up on that ladder in the freezing cold for so long, just calm;y spraying each stroke. 🙂
I know Phlegm from when he is out and about painting and bump into him occasionally. I love watching him paint. He is meticulous with the detail even in such large murals. He has done a few large murals in Sheffield. I stumbled upon his Robot painting http://postcardcafe.wordpress.com/2012/03/02/robot-by-phlegm-sheffield-2012/ and was completely bowled over. He is also quite fearless in how he accesses places to paint. The ladder is one of his more safe options! He is an inspiration. I hope you will post some photos of the finished painting. There is a great time lapse video of him painting in Rotherham a couple of years ago. It’ll be on youtube and is worth catching. Keep up the great work… 🙂
Wow, that robot is amazing!!
These are staggering shots of work on an amazing scale. I have seen a lot of Phlegm’s work on Little bits of Sheffield but hadn’t twigged that they were spray-painted. Wonderful insight into the process, thanks!
Thanks for stopping by! I’m really glad you liked the shots – I was really lucky to be there at the right time. Phlegm’s work is incredible, and it was so interesting to watch him paint.
