Vodka shot!

Earlier this year we’d heard that Vodka, one of Brightons finest had met up some of the NFA boys and they’d all painted at the Midlands largest Hall of fame the Walsall Copperworks. 

Obviously being 400mlheroes it was a nighttime trip down to do a bit of NTC.  We were not disappointed; contrary to rumors that the site was about to be built on, it was good to see that the Copperworks is still a hotspot for some of the best writers in the country.  While we were having a look around at what was new we found a piece by Kak from Infamous last words which had been up a while, and a couple of fresh pieces by local writer Ziner NFA.

A bit more NTC.

So here you go, a few NTC shots we’ve done over the past month. The first one was when we went down the time tunnel to do a burner but we got the wrong idea, then while we were up Kem and Mefs spot taking the shot for the steel horses show we got a few that the lads did from up there including a nice one of the whole building. Also in this set is a piece one of us did and one of us tried to destroy with molten metal, we nearly didn’t get this shot due to a bloke in the factory next to it telling us to move our car then watching as we snuck off past the factory down to the line. After about an hour we heard sirens and they came to an abrupt halt right above us we contemplated sloping off up the track but we had that much kit with us by the time we’d got it all together if they we’re coming down we’d still be packing up. So we waited for the inevitable and then we realised that the police really wouldn’t be interested in a couple of guys taking photos on a disused railway ………hope you like them…..more to follow soon…..honest.

Vomet

If there’s one writer in the Midlands who’s quickly making a name for himself its Vomet, in the past 4 years he has been relentless.  If you look at his work there’s no way you’d think he did his first piece Christmas 2008.  The only way to improve your skills so quickly and that’s to paint…paint…paint, and that’s precisely what Vomet has done, quickly building a reputation of being one of the Midlands most prolific and best writers… interview coming soon.

Kamoe NTC Copperworks

The Copperworks in Walsall were visited by some of Voms friends from Cardiff Saturday, we went down to get some NTC shots but the heavens opened just as we were waiting for it to get dark, we managed to get a couple before we got a nasty shock from the flashes.  Graff by Ziner and Kamoe….

The Copperworks

In 1999 Walsall’s James Bridge Copper Works shut down ending the 400 year Copper smelting industry in Walsall. So what happens to a 28 acre concrete jungle with 1km of wall? Thats right it gets painted, on 7/7/2005 Walsall’s very own Mr Vote discovered and painted it for the first time with Nems. The rest is history as developers are about to move in, plenty of the graff thats been painted (If not all) can be found with a quick Flickr search.
