Biography / PHLEGM

North Wales born, Sheffield based Phlegm is now a street art muralist who first developed his illustrations in comics. This artist manages to draw his environment into a narrative and spray paint it on large walls. Meanwhile he still creates book with it, of course using lots of ink. Phlegm’s works are featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Phlegm’s pseudonym dates back from ancient Greek. It is one of the four bodily humors believed it was responsible for the apathetic and unemotional temperament. His graffiti style is anything but conventional. He started using characters from his self-published comics and never was really interested in letter graffiti. One can say that the only difference between his comics and his murals is the working space; the size and surface where he places his artwork. His art style is highly unique and recognizable making him the most adored street artist. Besides his outstanding mural artwork on buildings, old factories, urban spaces and art festivals he has painted on various objects like airplanes, boats, and vehicles. What makes him so unique is the way he sees street art. He believes his murals become part of the cities’ architecture being influenced by the surrounding, which is a wonderful way on how to see art.
