Here’s all you need to know about the creators ahead of the start of the Guinness Six Nations this Saturday.
Graffiti Tom – @tee2sugars
Wales fan Tom is best known for his eye-catching murals, which he posts online under the name Tee2Sugars.
Tom rediscovered his love of painting during lockdown and got to work, with some of his most famous compositions depicting the most iconic moments in Welsh rugby history.
“It started 14 years ago when I was 18, but it went on the backburner, it was a little bit of a side hustle kind of thing, and I had other jobs and stuff in between,” said Tom.
“Then lockdown happened, and I took up painting again, it has just become a full-fledged thing and I started posting a lot more on social media.
“I think being Welsh and from the Valleys, 90% of the people watch rugby and obviously all watch the international stuff, so I think it is just embedded in us really that we all are passionate about the rugby.
“I get the opportunity to paint a lot of Welsh inspired stuff, and a lot of the time, I get to paint rugby sceneries, recently I painted a Welsh dragon, with Dan Biggar about to kick a rugby ball, and some beautiful daffodils around him.”
Tom will be at Principality Stadium for the opening match of the 2023 Guinness Six Nations, as Wales take on world no.1 side Ireland under new boss Warren Gatland.
