Legendary local illustrator, Phil Morgan’s street art style is well loved and instantly identifiable.

Soaked in music and skateboarding – and sometimes Welsh cultural – references, Phil’s work takes well-known elements from worldwide pop culture and repurposes them with a wink, a smile and – fairly often – a middle finger.

Work brought him to Cardiff where he settled in Penarth. After a short career in printing, he now paints. Primarily a landscape artist working in both watercolour and oil, he prefers to paint directly from nature, working quickly with a limited palette whilst endeavouring to capture the image before him in the most economical way.

I Loves The ‘Diff’s own postcard is an image by Ian Johnson, taken on 1 May 2020.

“It was really just a quick snap I took on my phone as I headed into work last Friday morning,” says Ian who works at the BBC.

The photograph, showing a Cardiff Bus on Park Street, central Cardiff, with its Cheers Drive message struck a chord with many people online, who were missing Cardiff and also wishing to convey their gratitude to the key workers who were out there keeping things going.

The fact that it also shows the Principality Stadium, converted into Dragon’s Heart Hospital, not only locates it – it can only be Cardiff – but made the image all the more pertinent.
