Imbue is Onboard

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Along with Hutch and Snub, Imbue is a prolific Brighton-based street artist with a wicked sense of humour creating amazing work across the city. Imbue, as the dictionary defination suggests – [im-byoo] –verb (used with object), -bued, -bu⋅ing. 1. to impregnate or inspire, as with feelings, opinions, etc. 2. to saturate or impregnate with moisture, color, etc. – does all these things and more. Be it belton (spray can) time bombs or bullets in bananas, his work is synonymous with Brighton and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with for TB+TC. Check out his site here.

Ben Slow’s Quick!

Or maybe it just helps to have friends. Snub sent an e-mail out last week and Ben was quick to throw his hat in the ring. Others have signed up since and we’ll update you soon. In the meantime, feast your eyes on this. She’s called Lucy and this was taken by Romanywg at Bazaart. You can check out more of his work here. Enjoy!

Tickets Go On sale

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

While spending a few needed days off in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada (Spain) to a backbeat of travellers beating their drums and the sound systems of the Dragon Festival filling the valley, tickets for The Beautiful and The Canned have gone on sale. Check out the Brighton Fringe website for details and snap them up. The closest Orgiva – probably the largest town in the Alpujarras – has to stencil art is this. Expect a lot more from TB+TC. We’ll be back in a day or two and will update you on events.

Latest Recruit

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Hot off the press and off the back of a phone call, Charles Dada is the latest name to sign up to TB+TC. Any of you who were at Cans II will remember his take on Marcel Duchamp’s The Fountain. Charles Dada also starred at exPreSSion at The Brick Lane Gallery back in September 2008 alongside the likes of SPQR, L.E.T, BANDIT and K-Guy. Ex-Brighton resident, Charles Dada, uses strokes of emboldened chaos where subject is almost secondary. Nevertheless, a powerful image emerges.
