Street art and graffiti scene photography - Birmingham UK
There is certainly no shortage of extraordinary street art in Birmingham!
I’ve rounded up a few pieces here: favorite odds and ends taken a few years ago in and around the city of Birmingham UK.
The consequence of a thriving artistic community in Birmingham is not just a plethora of museums and historical statues...
With the bustling Custard Factory, Eastside Projects, gigs @The O2 Institute and underground clubs in former warehouses around Digbeth, the street art and graffiti scene in Birmingham is alive today with new artwork popping up all over the city every week.
Todays street art provides an extraordinary spectacle for our eyes.
It celebrates different heritages, fights for equality's, pays homage to icons and honours the heroes and villains of our society.
It can also be none of the above and just the simplest of things that brightens a dreary day.
Digbeth, east of Birmingham city, with its run down empty factories and monolithic railway arches, has fast become the hub for street art and self expression.
Some of these projects have embedded themselves in the very fabric of Birmingham and are now as much part of the City’s identity as its iconic sculptures and landmarks. Some of them are also hidden as was the piece below in the derelict wholesale clothes warehouse S. Rose & Company Ltd - New Canal Street and Bordesley Street, Digbeth, also used as a location for filming of the movie Ready Player One back in August 2016.

Hunting down the great pieces of Birmingham street art is a rewarding experience any time of the year. Ive found the chances of less vehicles parked covering half the stuff in Digbeth is early mornings over the weekend, dont let the exiting wide eyed clubbers and drunk pub revellers put you off, normal people filter back in around day-break :)
Please note: any artists who would like specific accreditation please get in touch.
