The summer street art season of 2016 well and truly kicked off this weekend with the vibrant festival that is Birmingham’s City of Colours exploding onto the streets of Digbeth in a flurry of colour and spraypaint.
Sponsored by Grolsch and featuring talented artists such as Inkie, SPZero76, John D’oh, Fanakapan, Snub, Zabou, Cheba, My Dog Sighs, Masai, 3Dom, Angus, Ant Carver and my long-time favourite, Dan Kitchener (DANK), it really was an amazing sight to see walking around Digbeth as all the new pieces evolved before your eyes.
And as normally comes with a huge event like this, the slaphappy’s, paste-ups and taggers were also out in full force, with Free Art also dotted about all over the area for art lovers to find. I myself picked up a piece by Jay Sharples, and a piece by Rebel Grey too.
I’m already looking forward to next year!
