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!
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.

While we have been taking a few days off to regroup after TB&TC, it appears the artists’ work has caught people’s attention and made some headlines. This is a piece from Brighton’s daily newspaper, The Argus (page 5 no less- here Remi/Rough is pictured in front of his wall). Huge thanks to Fay MacDonald of Diosa Media for all her help to land TB&TC this year and for contacting the media post show.
A big shout out to RJ Rushmore of Vandalog for posting TB&TC on his blog last week. RJ is one of those tireless guys who is in it for the love of public art. Keep up the good fight! Click HERE to see the piece.
As Wet Paint Productions were out with the rollers today, Graff-City were busy delivering out paint order. The fact that we can’t now move for full boxes of Montana and Kobra tins in TB&TC HQ makes us happy. We’ve already tested the Kobra paint and it looks great. It could even be the new kid on the block! We have to say that organizing this amount of compressed colour for this many artists is never easy but our friends at GC made it so. Thanks guys and sorry you can’t be with us this weekend. We hope you can make the next one.
This is your map for the TB&TC weekend running 8/9 May and shows where all the paint sites are located and where the central installation and shop can be found. All roads lead to Brighton. Be there for some major work from amazing artists going big! Some as high as 10m and above on a cherry pickers and scaffold!!
The last wall of the day to be given a facelift was in Buckingham Street near Brighton Station. This spot will be painted by Blam, Smug One (down from Glasgow) and Estum, and it’s going to be a killer. All of these artists have serious kills and we can’t wait to show you the finished piece. Of course, you could always make it down to Brighton to see it going up for yourselves. Here is the LOCATION. And if it rains or you get a little thirsty there’s The Eddy pub directly opposite. TB&TC reaches the parts other paint jams cannot reach!
Wet Paint Productions, the organisers of TB&TC, earned the name today as we have spent most of it up scaffolding painting Prime Brighton, a great independent clothing shop in Gardner Street in the North Laine, in preparation for Remi/Rough’s arrival. We hope he’s not scared of heights as it a good few feet up as this picture proves. Anyone wanting to see Remi in action should be at this location on the corner of Church Street and Gardner Street from 11 am on Saturday to see a master at work!
At TB&TC HQ we’ve been receiving artists work for the last few days now and this cross section doesn’t even scratch the surface but we thought we’d give you a heads up anyway. We will have a lot of original work on sale at the TB&TC shop at Myhotel over the weekend of 8/9 May. The prices are as varied as the artist list. Hope to see you there.
