STREET ART and GRAFFITI OF BIRMINGHAM
Last month we gave you the Ultimate Guide to Birmingham. This month we are talking about street art in Brum. One thing we enjoyed about walking around Birmingham is the street art everywhere, especially in Digbeth. Digbeth is known as Birmingham's cultural quarter with many creative exhibitions and music venues around.
Most of the great street art seems to be concentrated in Digbeth. There are many buildings around that are either abandoned or the owners don't mind having graffiti there.
There is all sorts of different styles of street art and it's fun searching for it and finding your favourites.
Some of the art is tagging and some of it is "out there" and unusual.
It's something that makes the city look a lot more interesting in our opinion but to others it is an eye sore which is a shame. Art is subjective.
This Spock stencil didn't last long. We went to see it again and it was painted over. You have to take pictures while you can.
The Custard Factory in Digbeth has a parking area covered in high quality street art. It's definitely one of the attractions of the neighbourhood and a reason that people will enjoy visiting Birmingham.
