Launched a little over a month ago, Street Art Sheffield is a personal project I’ve been working on this year. It’s a showcase for the fantastic street art found across Sheffield, the city I call home.
I’ve always been a fan of street art, occasionally sharing pictures of it on this site. About a year ago I started taking photos of all the great graffiti I spotted as I was moving around the city. After being asked by a friend what I was doing with all the pictures I came up with the idea of building a site to post them and pinpoint them on a map of the city.
At the same time I’d been playing with the PHP framework Laravel and wanted a real project to put what I’d learnt to good use. So Street Art Sheffield was born.
I’ve still got lots planned for the site but there’s already a lot to see on there, so go check out Street Art Sheffield today!
