Phlegm Street Art Project Northam, Western Australia.

Phlegm street art project

Perth, Western Australia and you may think that all the Phlegm street art projects are to be found around Fremantle and Perth. However, worth taking a trip out of the city as things can be found in the countryside. We checked out this project by UK street artist and illustrator Phlegm on the side of a group pf grain silos out at Northam about 60 miles from the city. Even the the local Tiger snakes were checking out the project. So watch your feet!

Northam is a town in Western Australia, situated at the confluence of the Avon and Mortlock Rivers, about 97 kilometres (60 mi) east-northeast of Perth in the Avon Valley.

Phlegm is a world-known street artist, cartoonist and illustrator. He is also well known for his self-published comics and highly creative street art. Phlegm’s work is distinctively detailed composed of odd figures and a narrative structure. His work inspires greatness and is even often inspired by graffiti where Phlegm transforms run down urban spaces and factories.

The name Phlegm came from one of the four bodily humours in ancient Greek medicine; blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm. Phlegm was believed to be responsible for an apathetic and unemotional temperament.

The majority of Phlegm’s artwork is strictly illustration-based. He leaves his street artwork and murals for his cartoon-based art. In fact, that majority of his large characters originate from his comics and they are often spray painted onto very large walls. Phlegm prefers to paint his comic work with black Indian ink and a dip pen. He uses colour only when he is screen-printing or painting large murals and other objects. 

Since Phlegm emerged, he has gained worldwide recognition and is one of the most admired street artists across the world. His street art is very exciting and highly recognisable. His work has also appeared in a variety of objects such as airplanes, boats, buildings, vehicles and many street art festivals.
