Linked Up Again

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

 

Last weekend marked another Wet Paint Aerosol Workshop for the kids of Brighton and Hove’s parent-run group the Link-Up Project. As we have posted before, this amazing group offers support and social activities for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN). Once again the incredible Snub 23 put them through their paces – teaching them can control and compostition – all overseen by our very own Projects & Community Manager Charlie Allsebrook. Despite most of the kids being new to spraypaint their efforts really impressed us and they all left with a finished canvas as a memento of the day. Above all the other projects Wet Paint get involved with this is probably one of the most rewarding, especially as the kids enjoy it so much.  But don’t take our word for it. This is what Julie Sissions of the Link-Up Project had to say: “The children all loved the workshop. It was good that the session was inclusive of all age groups and it was fantastic to see an 8 year-old as engrossed as a 17 year-old working alongside together. The artist was informative and worked well with the young people, sharing his skills and passing on confidence to those who normally find art at school difficult. We will be booking [Wet Paint Productions] again for sure.” To find out more or to book workshops contact us at: wetpaintproductions@hotmail.com   

 

Link Up Graffiti

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Last Sunday saw another Wet Paint productions’ Graffiti Workshop and this time we were working with some budding young artists from the Link-Up Project .  The Brighton and Hove parent-run group  provide support and a social network for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and their parents. As part of their activities and outings they included an aerosol art afternoon schooled by Snub 23 (powered by Kobra Paint) who introduced the kids to the art of the craft. The kids loved it so much we have a sneaking suspicion they will be coming back for more. We’d like to thank all the members of Link-Up as they were great and a pleasure to work with. Especially Tom who at 15 years-old had this to say: “I feel this workshop has really enriched my knowledge of graffiti, character construction and building on a canvas.  I think we have all learnt new skills with spray paint and I’d definitely love to do it again in the near future.  All participants have really enjoyed themselves and found a way of expressing their individual artistic side with brilliant outcomes.” And of course a huge thanks to Snub 23 for being inspirational and to Wet Paint’s Community & Projects Manager Charlie Allsebrook for heading up this and all of our workshops and community work.

Leeks and Fin DAC on Film

Wet paint productions Findac & Leeks from snowstorm-media on Vimeo.

For your viewing pleasure, this short is part of a longer film that was beamed onto the side of a building as part of Wet Paint Productions’ White Night centre piece ‘inCANdescent‘ in Brighton last October. As we have posted before, the production which celebrates the end of BST and embraces winter, was put on in conjunction with artrepublic, ink_d and our good friends at Snowstorm Media. It was Snowstorm who filmed the original footage at Wet Paint’s event The Beautiful and The Canned (this one from 2009), edited and then projected the film at the White Night festival. The film shows Fin DAC and Leeks going to work in Brighton. Thanks to Snowstorm for the use of the footage and we’ll post more shorts in coming weeks. Stay tuned for news on The Beautiful and The Canned!

Brighton – Brugal Part 2

Sunday, November 7th, 2010

More corporate than then the first, here’s the second installment of the Brighton Brugal rum campaign, Wet Paint delivered back in the summer. This one features our man ‘Rum & Juice’ Jeba, Req, The Osh and of course, the Dada, Don. T-pimping is Snub 23, Foundry and Sinna. This is a precursor to the latest shorts we’ll post in the next few days from Edinburgh and Manchester, before we hit Covent Garden at the end of the month.

Rocket & Faunagraphic

Kelzo

Faunagraphic & Panda

Long overdue are these amazing pictures (courtesy Ant Clausen) from Wet Paint commissioned artists Kelzo, Faunagraphic, Rocket 1 and Panda hitting up the PaintBox and bringing the Brugal message to Manchester. Set up in the bohemian Northern quarter of the city, the roadshow drew a crowd despite the weather and the writers’ work injected much needed colour on a wet October day. We asked them to think Dominican Republic, sand, surf, sun and rum, and then unleashed them onto a 24ft x 8ft blank ‘canvas’ and unsuspecting public. As soon as we have the short film from the day we’ll post it. In the meantime, you can follow the Brugal blog to find out more about the street art activities Wet Paint are putting on for the campaign and you can follow Brugal on facebook.

This time it was the turn of Manchester’s Faunagraphic (pictured on her way up to Scotland last Friday) to get the bottle rolling in Edinburgh before this weekend’s Brugal launch in Auld Reekie. Fauna rocked the Candy Bar in George Street and all of you wanting to see live graffiti and street art should be in Castle Street this Friday and Saturday (15th & 16th October) to see Scotland’s finest in action. We’ll update you on all of this weekend’s action tomorrow!

Snub 23, Foundry, Avian Security, Dank and Vodker’s TB&TC (Komedia) wall has found its way onto the front cover of Access International – the premier publication read by  professionals around the world who rent, use and manufacturer cherry pickers. VNA it aint but respect to the artists for their work which obviously caught the eye of the editor and the KHL Group who publish it.

Meet Chima. Chima’s a free runner and the subject of the painting in the background called ‘Cheema Cheema, Chima Chima’ by the amazing talent that is Cosmo Sarson. The piece is based on a photo taken during the 1981 Brixton Riots and shows Chima leaping onto police riot-shields. Well, Chima offered his support by coming down to TB&TC and we wanted to share these photos taken by Jon Cartwright with you. The man has skills!

Stone Cold Camping!

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

These pictures (courtesy of Four Eyed Kid) are of a split screen VW Camper Fark FK and Stickee (the VST Racing Team) painted on the Saturday of TB&TC 2010. The guys did an amazing job in the rain and waved it off at about 5 PM before it took a final lap around Brighton attracting jealous and amazed stares from passersby.
