Channel 4’s Street Summer Midlands’ Design

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Last, but by no means least, of the films covering the cities Wet Paint Productions covered for Channel 4’s Street Summer season is Birmingham. This was a weird one as Lucy, the winning entrant, was unable to take part as she was busy bouncing around Europe and couldn’t make it back in time so it was left to mentor Ventsa of Four Pence Collective to recreate her design as he explains here. On this film Ventsa also touches upon the graffiti versus street art argument and what is art and what is vandalism? A subject which Graffiti Wars – a film commissioned as part of the Street Summer season about the fued between King Robbo and Banksy – tried to tackle. Ironically this competition sparked similar arguments that played out across several forums, chat rooms and websites. Massive thanks to Ventsa and all of the artists for their help and support on this project. For more information on Street Summer and it’s offerings hit HERE.
