Paint and Beer 2013 – Villa Friekens, Amsterdam.

Another awesome year at Paint and Beer and all in all it rocked.

With Sid on the amazing brew tip, Dries on the artist liaision with a loose ‘Street Art versus Graff’ theme ( It always seems like that anyway, with the artists segregated that way!), the whole day was brilliant fun and I met some sound peeps.

Painting massive walls and then later vans too, I ended up in the club at 4am and, to my delight, stumbled across these amazing Techno Gnomes having it on stage.

Thus enabling me to stay up and drink more fine beer and dance away the rest of the night. Brilliant!

I always love the Paint and Beer because it always inspires me to try out things that I wouldn’t normally do and I see an array of amazing styles.

Literally painting from the minute that I got there to the moment that I left, the event always does exactly what it says on the tin. Simple!

Thanks to all Friekens crew especially the one and only Dries and Sid ( and fam). Mega love and respect to the UK connection. Snub fam always in full effect.

Until next year.

Producers Retreat – Hippy Retreat

Events

Many thanks, yet again, to the guys at Producer’s Retreat and at the Caxton Arms for another great paint and choons event. The vibes were all peace and love, the paint and beer was flowing. With the flower power beats busting out and the Nag Champa slowly burning in to our brain, this Retreat was one of the best yet.

Props to Max and Charlotte, who knows how to rock a party.

Fellow artists on the night were Pinky, Snub23, Mishfit, Hinesy Hines, Ennui and Squirl Art.

If you’re based in Brighton and you haven’t been to one of these nights, then you are most definitely missing out.

BIG BIG BIG

In the past year and a half I have been involved in some of the biggest wall projects that I have ever done. It started in May 2010 with the event The Beautiful and the Canned 2, which was a highlight of 2010’s May Fringe Festival in Brighton and Hove. There were a number of large walls painted around the city by a selection of amazing spray paint and stencil artists. This event was lovingly and meticulously organised by Brighton’s own Guy Harris and Fay Mcdonald at WET PAINT PRODUCTIONS. The wall I was involved with, as seen above, was a collaboration with Brighton’s no.1 female spray artist, MISHFIT, London’s awesome character artist , INKFETISH,  mural cartoonist, KEV MUNDAY and Leamington Spa’s super tech stencilist, DBO. With a special guest appearance by Holland’s (or Nolland) crazy graff cartoonist, NOL getting as high as he always gets ( he is a very tall guy!). This was assisted by Independent Scaffolding of Brighton

In August 2010, I single handedly painted the largest mural I had ever painted. The wall ( as seen above ) took a week to complete, up a scaffold and I probably went through around 50 tins of spray paint. Powered by the mighty KOBRA brand and once again supported and elevated by INDEPENDENT SCAFFOLDING of Brighton, the wall was commissioned by THE  PROPERTY SHOP to promote a new business venture in to home repairs called ALL BUILDING TRADES. The image is the cut away of a house showing lots of building and repairs going on throughout.

This year has seen more large work go up ( see below ) and there are still a few more projects in the pipe line.
