#7. Phlegm’s Alligator mural
Sheffield based Phlegm is one of the UK’s most established street artists, celebrated for his surreal monochromatic illustrations. His murals suggest an underlying darkness with his hunched characters peering through telescopes and mechanical monsters conveying a much more ominous tone than would first appear. If the Brother’s Grimm and Escher were street artists, Phlegm’s work is what you might get. In a sign of growing public acceptance of street art, the Royal Opera House commissioned him to create a series of works for their Festival of Myth in September.
