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.

I must start by apologising for my horrendous lack of posts in recent weeks. I have been up to my eyeballs in projects and organising stuff that i just haven’t had the time to even blink at my wordpress.

 

So, SORRY!!

So we hit the end of may, and it was bloody sunny. Yay!! Got all of the boxes painted. Now June is here and it’s equally as rainy, so cannae get out to paint boxes again!!

So, just before the end of the festival, I went out on one scorching morning and painted the final box of the festival.  Nice spot, in front of Brighton pier.  The amazing Mr Hopes of  Pooka Photography came along and documented the event and put this rather lovely timelapse together, alongside my favourite remix of Caribou’s SUN –  remixed by FYBE : ONE of Shades of Grey recordings

Along side the Yarn Bomb project. the main project for Brighton Festival was for myself and Snub 23 to brand up some Brighton green boxes in the Brighton Festival styleee.

Got a few done, but the rain has been holding off painting play. Grrr! If it stops then there’ll be more to come in the next few days.

Happy New Year from Sinna One and friends.

Wow!! 2012. Here we are. What a great end to 2011 and what a great year for me in respect of some great projects. I hope that 2012 brings even more brilliant opportunities.

At the end of 2011, as you all know, I started painting the media junction boxes around Brighton. This then evolved in to the Grafik Advent project for Dec.

The month saw varied artworks on green boxes all around Brighton from myself and other Grafik Warfare members.

The project was a success, and I now have my work cut out for me and the crew in the next week or so to cover all the Christmas works up. The results of which will be appearing on here.

In the meantime here are a great selection of shots, captured by the brilliant 4FOOT2. He has a great passion for photographing street art and graffiti and spends a good deal of time finding the best spots and getting the best shots. You can see more of his work on his Flickr – Here.

Enjoy.

Grafik Advent 20 and 21

So we are rolling to the end of the Grafik Advent with only 4 days to go until Christmas.  Lots more boxes have appeared around Brighton and unfortunately I have broken my camera and my phone so it is getting difficult to log them all. Not to worry though. Here are 2 more for ya.

First up, is another great colourful box by Snub23. I’m digging the white highlights on this, making it look like it has a layer of snow on the letters.

Then a quick entry from myself today. Done as part of the Fresh St.Art project today, with assistance from Sharon.

Sorry, once again, for the delay in posting. Things are getting more and more hectic in the run up to Christmas. There is still work to be done. There are cards to write and also some Christmas shopping to finish. Arrrrrgh. And on top of this the last 5 Advent pics to be done.

The last few days, I have been busy so we have a collection of boxes done by Req1, Stink Like Dog and Snub 23. These fantastic pictures come courtesy of amazing photographer 4Foot2.

 

As this project has moved along and different artists have become involved, it has been incredible to see the level of artwork being put out there. Grafik Warfare and friends have offered up a range of diversity and skill in producing the boxes. As I say there are 5 days left. Keep tuned in for more awesome work.

GRAFIK ADVENT DEC 10th – SNUB

Snub bangs out some 23 steez on the boxes for Dec 10th. These are all located around the city centre.

 

You can see his other work on his FLICKR.

 

The 23 is representing SNUB’s favourite number and not the Advent day. That one is yet to come and something big should be coming for the last 2 days of the Advent. Watch this space. 🙂
