This photograph was taken on rainy day in January this year.  The paved area in the foreground was actually steaming from the heat of the underground District Energy Network which runs beneath many parts of Sheffield.  Even though the ground was wet it felt warm to touch.  I’m guessing the insulation to the distribution pipes is not as good as it once might have been!

Detail from the new Phlegm mural on Snuff Mill Lane

During October Phlegm was invited to Sheffield along with 15 other local and international artists as part of the Feature Walls mural event

In 2010 Phlegm’s artwork was also seen further along Ecclesall Road HERE  Unfortunately the artwork had only a short life and few people were able to appreciate it. The location has since been redeveloped into flats

See the mural as a work in progress on Postcard Cafe | HERE
