The opening night of one of Sheffield’s favourite street artists, Coloquix took place just before we saw in the New Year at The Forum Bar & Café in the heart of the city’s Devonshire Quarter.
With it’s controversial overtones, street art essentially is art for everyone in a public place; commissioned or un-commissioned, versatile, ever-changing and unpredictable in it’s nature.
You can find a lot of Coloquix’s work in derelict buildings, hidden away for the small yet determined community of urban explorers to find whilst wandering the darker corners of our city.
Amongst many secret, hidden gems you’ll also see that his artwork has graced the walls of establishments like The Washington pub, brightening up their exteriors and also many private commissions in people’s gardens and houses.
It seems natural that his signature black and white, long-haired ladies and their feline friends should make the progression into a more mainstream arena.
Bright colours, adorn the walls of The Forum Bar & Café on the well-attended opening night of the exhibition with a total of 14 pieces painted onto board, all of which are for sale and will be there for a total of six weeks until early February 2015.
From the smaller head and shoulders portraits to the larger full length boards; if you want your own original piece of Coloquix street art this is the perfect place to view before you decide which article is for you.
