Sheffield-based Phlegm is best known for his self-published comics and highly creative street art. Many of his larger-than-life characters originate from his comics. "I started out as a cartoonist but the graffiti side of things has really taken over the past three years," says Phlegm. "I think it’s because my style has been so effected by what i draw for the comic, it’s stopped almost all outside influences." "I love to get run down urban spaces and factories and play with the space," he adds. "It’s such an immediate way to get your picture on the wall. A painting in the street becomes part of the cities architecture, influenced by what’s around it rather than being some awkward canvas in an art gallery."
