Street Art and Graffiti, Digbeth, Birmingham.

I went to an awesome little market in Birmingham last week, and saw some cool graffiti as I walked through Digbeth.

I love seeing all the street art whenever I go to a city, we only get boring tagging here (so far!).

Do you have interesting graffiti where you are?

  1. Leicester has disappointingly rubbish graffiti - apart from a couple of walls, it's all just tagging.

    1. It's disappointing isn't it, usually we only have tagging round here too, although I have noticed a couple of yarn bombs!

  2. Love street art, Detroit has a lot of it. Always something new to see. Pittsburgh which is a city we visit a couple of times a year to see family have some great full building pieces, so vibrant and eye catching.

  4. These are great, the first is my favourite. I haven't noticed any graffiti, good or bad, around Norwich - although maybe I'm just walking around in a dream lol!

    1. I love the first one too, it was so big in real life too, like 10foot tall maybe!

  5. Hey Susie - nice little post on my local area; thanks for sharing and showing off some of our backstreets!

    Just to put some names to the walls, you have

    Amara Por Dios (from Sweden, living in London - done for the City of Colours 2014 festival)
    Corpse (from up the East Midlands - he's a fab pasteup guy who pays surprise visits to the area every now and then)
    Name escapes me right now (the graff reads OWED but that wasn't the writer's name as I recall - was one of the local guys though, I'm sure)
    Graffiti 4 Hire (local business here in Brum and a legal piece from a few years back)
    N4T4 (Leamington as I recall, done for City of Colours Winter Showcase 2014)
    And again, Grafitti 4 Hire (done to promote Movember a few years back)

    Glad you enjoyed them :)

    1. Hey, thanks so much for that info, it's nice to put names to the paint! :)

      I didn't know anything about the City of Colours, but I see there's going to be another one in 2016, so I'll look forward to checking that out :)

  6. There isn't really any graffiti where I live but in my old town there was just rubbish tagging too. Taggers really are a sad breed. Absolutely 0% talent and 100% waste if time-it's not even as if their writing is neat. Essentially the equivalent of a toddler getting hold of crayons and scrawling on the wall.x

    1. I totally agree, tags are so boring to look at too!
