The Paint Box Redux

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

Bear with us people. We know things have been a little quiet recently but we have some technical problems which are preventing us from uploading video and images to the site.

The end of June saw the return of the Paint Box in Jubille Square, Brighton, for the ‘Bringing Brugal to Life in Brighton’ campaign. This time around we had Req 1, Jeba, The Osh and of course Don. You know the form by now. Each artist has a side of the box (8ft x 24ft) to project their take of Brugal rum and Caribbean life!

Well we have some great shot to share with you and they can all be view HERE.

Pimp My T-Shirt

Friday, June 11th, 2010

Last night saw one of Brighton’s finest Mishfit pimping T-shirts as part of the in-bar Brugal Brighton launch in pubs across the city centre. The rules are simple: buy a Brugal rum and you get a free tee for the artists to customize. The punters were definitely loving their shirts just as much as the rum. Tonight is the turn of Foundry and Snub 23 (recently back from his Secret Wars win at Upfest – so he has his eye in!). We’ll be at the Mash Tun from 8.30pm, the White Rabbit from 9.30pm and Riki Tik from 11.30pm. If you’re in Brighton and want some exclusive T-Shirts then make sure you’re at one of these venue tonight!

In the field

Here are graffiti legend Don’s 6-sheet posters for the Brugal Brighton campaingn which are now gracing bus stops throughout the city. The first is called Waterfall and the second is entitled The Whole World is a Stage. These posters are just part of a month-long launch in Brghton which Wet Paint Productions have been employed to help deliver a ‘street up’ approach to increase awareness of the rum brand.

For all of you in Brighton tonight, the first lady of Brighton graffiti Mishfit, will be customising free Brugal tee-shirts. So, come and see us at the Fish Bowl at 8pm, Fiddlers Elbow at 9pm or the Black Lion from 10pm. Bring friends. Drink rum. Have fun. It’s nearly Friday!

Agent Provocateur’s One Slick Dude!

Friday, June 4th, 2010

A month of Brugal Brighton kicked off yesterday with Don, Foundry, Pinky and Mishfit (respectively) getting up on the Paint Box in Jubilee Square. The artists and onlookers could have been in the Caribbean as the temperatures soared into the high seventies yesterday with great weather and art guaranteed again for today. These shots are of the work in progress and each mural depicting the essence of rum and the Dominican Republic will be finished today.

Wet Paint helps launch Brugal rum in UK

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

Just when you thought is was all over, Wet Paint Productions are back and this time working with London – based agency Billington Cartmel to promote Brugal rum in a month-long street art campaign across Brighton. Originating from the Dominican Republic, the ethos behind Brugal is passion and vitality for life centered around sun, sea and dancing, music and nightlife, as well as vibrant street art that can be seen all over the island. The combination of laid-back yet creative culture meant that Brighton was a perfect match for the launch of Brugal in the UK via a street art based campaign. Wet Paint Productions were chosen as the perfect partners to deliver the street up events. Activities for the launch will continue throughout June across the city starting with live painting in Jubilee Square over the next two days – 3/4 June. Come and see Don, Pinky, Mishfit and Foundry painting live and projecting their tropical take on this sugar cane spirit and the spirit it represents. See you there for a taste of the Carribean mixed with some great street art!
