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.

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.
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.
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 Productions will upload the finished pieces later and announce more news of planned in-bar promotions involving artists pimping tee-shirts and more live painting dates to come in June. You can see more photos HERE.
Yesterday was the first day of Brighton Festival Fringe which has taken over the city and will last throughout May. The first day of the month also saw a few TB&TC artists doing their own things. This included Sinna painting live at Madame Geisha, Hutch painting the outside of Residence – Brighton’s first pop-up restaurant in Whitecross Street – as well as Funky Red Dog and T.WAT’s open house Vehicle Testing Station, 20 Cambridge Grove (venue 13 on the Hove Arts Trail). More from all three of them next weekend.
