A capture by Ian Michael Spooner of Sheffield City Council removing Faunagraphic and Rocket01’s collaboration piece ‘Home is Where the Heart Is’ from the side of the building at the end of Sidney Street recently.
Rumour has it that alot of Sheffield’s street art from around this area will be removed due to a renovation of that area of the city including a Phlegm piece on the side of Leadmill also having been painted over and the Kid Acne piece next to this piece also having been partially removed with plans to fully remove it soon.
It’s a massive shame that the council have decided to do this as they are all fantastic pieces of art and really brighten up the city.
I, and I’m sure many others who love the street art community in Sheffield, hope that the council don’t choose to remove any more pieces and make the right decision to leave the art where it is.
Along with Ian’s image are two of my own images taken not long after the piece was completed.
