Phlegms huge window painting at the Millennium GalleryHEREhas been vandalised within weeks of its completion. The damage occurred on the evening of Sunday 19th May 2013. This was the same weekend that Phlegms artwork was stolen in Sheffield city centre see earlier postHERE Quite possibly this was another attempt to steal Phlegms artwork from a public place. Whoever did this failed to steal it but succeeded in damaging it. Today three people in the city centre were overheard discussing how Phlegms artwork is “up for grabs“. It is sad and alarming that anyone should wish to deprive the general public of artwork for their own personal gain. It would appear that not everyone visiting his sites are there to appreciate his artwork! Maybe those who frequent places where Phlegm has painted could be be more vigilant and keep an eye out for people wishing to destroy or steal his artworks (be safe and do not attempt to tackle anyone defacing or attempting to steal artworks). It is also another good reason not to publish locations of his work on social media. I do hope these incidents are not part of a trend. Take good care out there and don’t assume that everyone you bump into is simply exploring!
