Syd of the Stencil Shed
Who’s behind it all?
Syd (Luke Hollingworth). The rural based ‘street and field’ graffiti artist is based in the Stencil Shed.
The story goes that Syd took to his garden shed when the UK’s economy was falling on hard times back in 2008. The shed was purpose built for aerosol graffiti art adventures and the consumption of cider (of course!) and it’s Syd’s “oasis of heaven” that made it all the way to the final of Amazing Spaces ‘Shed of the Year’ on channel 4 in 2014!
So what exactly does he sell?
It’s a collision of spraypaint and wood that makes very eye catching and unusual art. Each piece is handmade by Syd and thus unique and highly collectable, making perfect gifts for all ages and sexes.
Syd’s shed is a distinctive and very creative place where magical things happen with spray cans, stencils and imagination! He was proud to win the coveted best dressed chalet at the 2015 Bath Christmas market and has something fun and exciting on the exterior of his chalet to greet you in 2016.
Visit the Stencil Shed at the Bath Christmas Market and expect a warm welcome from Syd in his shed-like habitat featuring lots of new, exclusive and fun artworks for all.
