Manchester’s Street Summer Entry Goes Up

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Manchester’s winning entry for Channel 4’s Street Summer season went up at the start of the month. Designed by local writer Theodore and mentored by Sheffield’s own Faunagraphic, the piece draws inspiration from an unlikely source. In this film, Theodore explains that his design is based on a painting by the Czech Art Nouveau artist Alphonse Mucha no less. Watch the film for an explaination and look out for Fauna’s expression – it’s priceless. Wet Paint would like to thank Faunagraphic and all of the artists we worked with during this project. And to view all of the regional winners and their films skip to the Don’t Panic website HERE.

Somehow, this video of Wet Paint’s antics for Brugal rum in Manchester got shelved for a while, but we thought we’d dust it off and post it up. Produced by Fat Sand, it features the amazing talents of graffiti king Kelzo, Faunagraphic, Rocket01 and 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.

Faunagraphic

It’s that time again! Crack open the Brugal rum and grab your tees ’cause the Wet Paint T-shirt pimps are back! 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!
