Phlegm – The spider

When we saw on Phlegm's blog about his first new piece of artwork of 2015 we knew we had to get down to Mosborough to have a look at it ourselves. Although Phlegm is known for his street art and urban art this piece, dare we say it, is out in the Sheffield suburbs. In fact it's about as far out as the city's boundary goes as Mosborough lies on the border with Derbyshire. In every other aspect this is a classic Phlegm piece. The setting is a burnt out barn set back on the corner of Station Road and School Street. The monochrome giant spider is battling hard with the familiar long-limbed being. Who will win in the fight for the winged creature?
