Aggggh! We didn’t won’t to ruin the surprise but the cat was clawing the bag and we’ve never been good at keeping secrets. This…is what the Snub 23 Big Lemon bus is going to look like! Look again!! Sorry Snub but we thought all of you who don’t use Big Lemon should get an enhanced sneak preview. Video of Snub and Shuby making it real up at the weekend.

Gnarley Dude!

TB+TC are proud to be associated with a few companies and one of these is Route Oneestablished in 1989, they are one of the oldest street stores in the country, specialising in BMX, Skateboard, Inline Skate and ATB equipment. Artists like Snub have painted limited edition decks for these guys in the past and we can now announce that they have donated 10 decks for 10 of the TB+TC artists to transform. These will be ‘dropping in’ in time for the show and each of these will be a unique one-off design. They will be either auctioned or raffled to raise money for the Brighton Youth Club charity. We will make an announcement as soon as we have confirmation of which artists’ work will feature on the decks and how we’ll sell them. It won’t matter though if your a skater or a collector – these are going to be off the hook!

We’re Back!

We’re back from Paris and back on point. The French capital has a mad graff scene but it’s good to be back in Brighton – we love this city! As promised, updates are going to come thick and fast now so try to keep up!

Pink Bananas and Big Lemons

We know it sounds obscene but really it’s just some harmless fun. Since TB+TC met up with Shuby, she’s been busy putting paste ups around Brighton. Some of you wide-eyed people may already have noticed them but not 6 ft tall on the side of Big Lemon buses! This is a fruit salad we couldn’t send back. So expect to see them soon.

Anyone following us on Twitter will aprpeciate that this event is a culmination of a lot of hard work from a lot of people and organisations. Least of all Diosa Media. We just wanna say thanks for all your help. 

Who’s Who?

The artist list is now up and it reads like a who’s who of street art talent. If you’re not familiar with any of the artists’ work then hit the links and check it out for yourselves. You won’t be disappointed.

Tickets Please!

For all of you who live in the sunny, seaside city of Brighton and rely on this alternative service, do not be alarmed if you soon see graffed-up Big Lemon buses crossing your path or pulling up to bus stops near you. This alternative bus service which runs its machines on eco-fuel will soon feature exclusive work from some of Brighton’s most famous street artists. The paste ups will be visible on the side of these instantly recognisable coaches from the last week of April until the end of TB+TC – 17th May. We don’t even know which artists will be responsible for the work so the final result will be just as much as a surprise to us as it will be to you! In partnership with Big Lemon, TB+TC aim to make your travel more enjoyable.

We’ve been big fans of these guys for some time now as the walls of our house will testify. So, imagine our delight when we found out that they will be swapping their adopted town of Newcastle for Brighton over the weekend of 16th and 17th May. A little bird tells us that they are keen to hook up with TB+TC and paint the town red – well, several colours actually. We hope we’ll have their work on display and for sale at the event. So you’ll have to get in quick if you want to snap up these unsung heroes’ work. Once we have more details on any collaboration we’ll let you know. If you haven’t heard of or seen Prefab 77’s work then shame on you and immediately click here to be illuminated.

Digital Graffiti

Monday, April 6th, 2009

A massive shout out to Colin Jenkinson of Cogapp for sorting out L.A.S.E.R tagging for TB+TC. This is an interactive system designed for visitors to the show to try their hand at Digital Graffiti.

Established in 1985, Cogapp is a Brighton-based consultancy, design and production company working with online and interactive media. Within this field, Cogapp specialises in work that generates high value, long lasting and innovative results including web sites, interactive installations, mobile applications and electronic publications. Services offered include consultancy, design and production. Some of their clients include the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, the V&A and BBC.

The system, “L.A.S.E.R. Tag”, was created by some very brainy and rather subversive people at the Graffiti Research Lab. This particular group use the technology to temporarily deface important landmarks, before they get chased off by the police.
