The Yard’s Gates Open

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Last week Brighton got it’s newest club in the shape of The Yard and after being commissioned to give the interior a serious street vibe overhaul, we thought we’d share some more pictures with you. At the top is Snub 23, the man behind all of the work, next to his image ‘Be Nice to Girls’ which now adorns one complete wall on the ground floor. Most of this floor has been given a distressed, lived-in look to mimic art on the street and we think we fulfilled the brief. At the bottom is a commissioned piece by rum producer Brugal which WPP worked with over the summer. We can now announce that there will be a rum-fueled spray paint antics coming up next month in Edinburgh, Manchester and London. We’ll update you on events soon.

The Whole Nine Yards

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Another month and another commission for Wet Paint Productions. This time around it is for Brighton’s newest club The Yard (formerly the Ocean Rooms). When the new ¬†owners asked us to be involved we jumped at the chance and unleashed our own ‘Optical Manipulator’, the machine that is Snub 23 to take over and put the ‘street’ into the venue. Before the doors open tonight we thought we’d give you just a sneak preview of what clubbers can expect from the revamp of this three-floor hotspot about to get nightlife in the North Lanes buzzing again. We have been asked to keep the spirit alive by continually changing the interior and experience, so we’ll post more pictures tomorrow after the soft launch and updates as they occur. If you’re in the neighbourhood, get yourselves in for the artwork alone. Like the sound system it’s banging. Big ups to Snub and thanks again to The Yard team and if you need some of this in your life then get in touch.

We’ve Seen the Future…

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

Due to a manic schedule (and maybe a bit of well earned laziness!) we have had what can only be described as a communications black out over the last few weeks. Well, back from travels sorting arrangements for forthcoming events which we’ll announce very soon, we thought we’d update you with a couple of posts on recent events.

Last month saw Wet Paint Productions’ Aerosol Art workshops kick off at the Open Market, Brighton, and we had a full house every time. From seven year-olds to a thirty something stag party, we found ourselves teaching the uninitiated how to spray paint and with great success. Our young apprentices especially threw themselves into the action and couldn’t wait to get their hands dirty as these pictures prove. Under the guidance¬†of Foundry and Snub 23 we think we have helped to produce some budding little graffiti artists. We have to also thank Funky Red Dog and Limbo for their direction too.

Having already received a lot of requests for more we will update you soon with future dates.
