Phlegm street art

According to Wikipedia Phlegm is a “Welsh born sheffield based muralist and artist”. His unusual moniker first appeared with his self published comics and he works at all scales from the tiniest etchings to gargantuan creatures and murals. You can see more on Phlegm’s Instagram

With very few exceptions Phlegms images are painted in black and white. They are full of intricate details and fantastical creatures and figures.

In 2019 Phlegm put on his most ambitious show to date. Mausoleum of the Giants featured huge full formed figures apparently slumbering in a disused factory in Sheffield. It was a runaway success attracting 12,500 visitors over its duration.
