Art is not what you see, but what you make others see

wpid-phlegm5-2011-04-9-02-01.jpgPhlegm is a a urban/comic artist based in Sheffield, UK. “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.”
His comic, also titled “Phlegm”, contains his pen and ink illustrations, cartoons, and spraypaint work found in the streets. “The work is intricate, often surreal, but most of the time it looks like a mad person has been locked in a room for years with no company but a bottle of Indian ink and a scratchy nib….because that’s precisely what it is.”
