On the drive home from work the other day, I saw a painted wall. I stopped to take some pictures and a man came out of the building and stopped work to talk to me. (It's Avonstar Trading; a metal suppliers located here in Digbeth in Birmingham for the curious)
I asked him if he knew who'd painted the walls. He told me I was looking at the person who'd done the paintings and this one he said was influenced by early 1900s Birmingham gang, The Peaky Blinders.
We chatted and he told me where I could see some of his canvas paintings by searching Sainte Caprinus on Behance - https://www.behance.net/gallery/19738541/Kasia-S
He said he'd started the wall last year but it was incomplete because the weather had put him off completing it over the winter.
He wants the whole wall to show industry past, present and future, going all the way up the building.
Then he had a phone call so he left me to it and I went a bit snap-happy!
I recommend you check out his Behance.
About three minutes after leaving him, I passed some more street art on another building located here (which I've since found out is Mission Print printers who I will be looking into for prints of some of my work) so stopped to photograph this one too. ( I was quite late home from work this day in the end...)
I've passed this one before but never stopped to photograph it before.
Digbeth is quite the hotspot for interesting buildings and street art at the moment, so I will be keeping my eye out for more and I'll let you know if I find any.
If you find any interesting graffiti, please do let me know. Also, have a look at this post at www.JicsisJewellery.co.uk for an interesting use for it all.
UPDATE: I've added a new blog post on more findings on this artist.
