Sharrow Graff Jam 2013

DSCF2241Skema and Apps travelled up early from Walsall to take part in this years Jam, producing a stunning Star Wars themed collaboration. Perhaps it was part of a cunning plan to make sure they got finished sooner and didn’t fry like the rest of us, because it was certainly a scorcher.

DSCF2318Meth looking very dapper as he worked on a piece in his trademark style.

DSCF2267Mis Red, not been out and about as much as I’d like to see, produced a lush cats and mouse piece, hope there will be more soon.

DSCF2321Trik9, excellent as always.

DSCF2316Xhastexo and Bine, a winning combination, fuelled by Budweiser!

DSCF2334DSCF2332DSCF2330Bob, Public Offender and I’m not sure who, painted some of the smaller panels on the outside of the ball court.

DSCF2314I like this and wish my reading of letters was better, so I could tell you who it was.

 

DSCF2296Mr Ryak, always nice to see.

 

DSCF2340MTH Crew, great to see them in Sheffield, a really talented bunch.

 

DSCF2840Kosy, cannot tell you how happy I was that he came and did a piece at the jam and that I met him and he was great!

DSCF2834Si2, Hull Graffiti, I can watch this guy paint all day he’s like a magician, even if you’re watching his every move, you still don’t know how he does it.

 

DSCF2337Five Five in action.

 

DSCF2837Such, organiser of the graff jam, love the colours in this.

 

DSCF2842Lone and Bern key artists at the jam…DSCF2843…as is Kode it wouldn’t be the same without them.

DSCF2831Last but by no means least Pawski, Shoe and Mace, a force to be reckoned with. A fantastic piece, again, can’t wait to see what they pull out of the bag for Tamworth.

So yes all in all a good day out, met lots of people, got burnt to a crisp, saw some wonderful graffiti/art, got a Booms piece of my own and had some fabulous indian food, does it get any better than that? Probably not…

P.S. Apologies to any artist not featured here, there was just too much!

Street Fusion, Brink,Kenilworth, May 11th

 

 

Managed to bag a lift with some Sheffield chaps in a car with a wankel engine and off we went to Kenilworth.

DSCF9225It should be standard at these events that the name of the artist is written on the wall where they are to paint, so that I know who they are, I was very pleased. Tim at Brink Contemporary Arts is very good at this kind of thing, organising a cracking event and making people happy.

DSCF9446Good to see Kilo Sinstars Fba in action last time I saw him was at a jam in Sheffield last year.

DSCF9524Steve Edwards lovely guy with a distinctive style, nice to put a face to a name.

DSCF9586Binty Bint wore the smartest and most co-ordinated outfit on the day really nice to see her do her stuff. Camz and Moe. new to me, did 2 great pieces and I will be looking out for them in the future. Oh, and yes we had the odd spell of rain.

DSCF9606Tokes, Rascal, Apps, Reas, Kilo, Skema, Hush, Crom, Title and Vomit, what a wall. awesome.

DSCF9622Hush, Crom, Title and Vomit, bit more of a close up.

DSCF9527Crysp, good to see him again, missed his lovely lady though.

DSCF9588Tokes, Rascal, Apps and Reas, stunning, running out of words for how good the quality was, but trust me it was good.

DSCF9632The Sheffield posse of CoLor Art, Duse and Pawski pulled off 2 stunners on the day.

DSCF9629Simon75 worked on this cube concept that was sadly not finished by the time we left, the weather and the fact that he had to build the boxes first probably didn’t help, looked really cool though.

DSCF9619This piece by Sed was looking great  and I think it was nearly done as we left.

DSCF9481There were also live acts on throughout the day, they’ve got some real talent round them parts.

DSCF9597All in all it was a fantastic day, that the weather didn’t spoil. Went to Kenilworth with some great people I am proud to call friends and hopefully made quite a few more while I was there. Tim was an absolute star as always, can’t wait to see what he organises next!
