Sheffield’s Phlegm is well known for his detailed illustrations and we’ve seen a lot of work of his over the years on the streets of London. Starting out as an illustrator he has created his own World of characters which have since evolved into some of his giant intricate street art. His work can be seen on the side of Swans Buildings on Cable Street. A fantastic city in a bottle the detail is impressive. It’s not certain exactly what was in Phelgm’s mind when painting this as he doesn’t really do a lot of explaining but the metaphor of a self sustaining city stuck inside a bottle whilst outside the World is just blank walls is an interesting one.
A world-known cartoonist and illustrator, Phlegm is also well known for his self-published comics and highly creative street art. Phlegm’s work is distinctively detailed composed of odd figures and a narrative structure. His work inspires greatness and is even often inspired by graffiti where Phlegm transforms run down urban spaces and factories.
