Graffiti and Street Art
A gallery of graffiti and street art found around the city. Please click on the thumbnails to enter the individual galleries
Great Northern Road
This first collection of images were taken in a derelict building on Great Northern Road that I think used to belong to the Client Logic call centre
Graffiti at Friargate station and warehouse
Lara Croft Way
Following completion of the Inner ring Road a few years ago an arts collective called Subism were commissioned to provide some art work for the area. Working with local schools they created the mural shown in the pictures below
Commissioned art work for the side of the old Debenhams building, now Silly Sid's, on Green Lane. The mural is a look at a possible future Derby in 100 years time and has been painted by artists Aaron Murphy and Diana Bechmann.
Great Northern Road 2016
Since the first set of photos were taken at the Great Northern Road site the derelict Client Logic Call centre buildings have been demolished with the result being that much of the wonderful graffiti was swept away. Recently, however, I was made aware that artists have been creating a wonderful gallery of work on the surviving walls. Below is just some of it.
Great Northern Road 2017
This site has now become a major centre in the city for fabulous graffiti art. The ever changing site now features the work of artists from all over the country. This huge site is well worth a visit
Graffiti Park May 2017
The latest collection of art work at the site - January 2018. It has recently been announced that the site is to be the new home for Derby Cathedral School so this wonderful place will be lost to the city. If you want to visit I would advise doing it soon - you won't be disappointed
Great Northern Road 'The Big Yard' April 2018
On the 15th April artists gathered at the Big Yard Graffiti Park for possibly the last time. The area is soon to be redeveloped as the new Cathedral Primary School and this wonderful space lost. There are a large number of photos in this gallery and I have hopefully included works by all of the artists - apologies to any I have missed, if you message me with a description of your picture I will try to revisit the site and add your work to the gallery.
June 22nd 2018 - The Park has not yet been closed, the builders should be making their way to the site any day. Fortunately this means that the artists have been able to create some more wonderful works many of which can be seen below
September 2018 - The park is still open, the builders have not yet moved in so I took the opportunity to get some pictures of the latest art works
I think this will almost certainly be the last set of photos from the Big Yard. As I was taking this pictures there were some diggers on site that seemed to be preparing the ground for the new development
As of April 2019 building work has still not started so our artists are continuing to add some fantastic artwork to the Big Yard
