Acerca de Carlos
Hello everyone! I am Carlos. I have lived in Sheffield for 15 years and I worked (and lived!) in Central America, the Caribbean and all around Europe for 10 years before.
I love the the quirks and eccentricities that only travelling our wonderful world and meeting its beautiful people can give. I also like finding the spots that maybe not even the locals know too!
I am an avid fan of street art and around 7 years ago I started to capture photos of the outstanding street and graffiti artists all around The Steel City.
The fleeting nature of this kind of art is what I really enjoy.
What else? Let’s have a think...
I am a Dad to my son and daughter and I am lucky enough to be married to the best wife, ever! I have a Yorkshire terrier called Ernesto and I love taking him for walks in green places. I love to cook all kinds of food and don’t mind being experimental in the kitchen. Ha! I love Greece and have spent around 5 years in that fascinating country. I also speak some street Greek that I’ve picked up along the way.
Mostly I love meeting new people from all over the world and getting to know them. All the time realising that we have more in common than we all know.
Even that I have not participated Carlos' tour (yet), I wish to share with you my experience from the opposite side, as a Greek local which runs a similar street art walk. Carlos is a humorous and intelligent guy and I was really lucky to have him as a guest in one of my walks. He is super friendly and he is really keen on local stories, murals and graffiti. I had visit Sheffield two years ago and he explained to me the figure of a mural I have seen next to the university. Also his photos are suberb (hint: ask for his Instagram profile). I am really happy for your tour Carlos and good luck. I already know that it's going to be a great walk!
Καλη αρχή! Να περνάς όμορφα.
I hope to visit Sheffield soon!
