My favourite Street Art in Staffordshire

 

Street art, it’s like visiting an art gallery only you’re walking the streets.

It makes me smile when I stumble across a new painted wall, a subway or building. There’s so many now, especially in my home town – Newcastle under Lyme. Thanks to local artists and world famous Muck Rock our local streets are awash with colour and joy. Yes that’s right Jules Muck has been decorating our streets and she’s the talk of the town. As well as providing so much inspiration.

When I stumble across a new spot I can’t help but stop and admire. And take a photo. Of course. I first started to see street art popping up many years ago when George was much younger (see below). And in the last two years more and more painted doors and walls have appeared. It’s wonderful. Certainly makes me smile, I presume that’s the intention right? The power of art, it makes you stop. Makes you think. And smile.

So many businesses have now started to paint their walls and have even commissioned the very talented Jules Muck. She’s so talented, and as I said before the talk of the town. There are now so many old doors, shutters and walls that have been given a lease of life as well as businesses painting exterior walls to showcase their business – just like this pink hearts one. A great marketing tool for the hair salon!

The last time Muck Rock was in Stoke on Trent was just before lockdown. I remember following her journey around the local area and at one point thought how interesting it would be to watch as she painted. I’ve seen her stories when she paints in California and find it fascinating how a wall comes to life. It’s a real talent to be able to transfer a wall into something that stops you in your tracks.

I really need to walk around the streets one weekend and snap more of these walls, I might even take Bobby. I’m sure there’s more that I haven’t managed to capture in other Town’s in the area. One day I’ll do that.
