400mlHeroes

So who are these 400mlHeroes?

;

Firstly there are two of us; we’ve been involved in graff since it all started in the UK. We are founder members of TWC (The Wild Criminalz) and RGT (Rogue Troopers) we’ve been actively involved in the scene on and off for 27 years. Basically we know our stuff, we call ourselves 400mlheroes but the real heroes are the guys and gals picking up the cans and giving us something to photograph.

What’s the difference between 400mlHeroes and all the other graff sites out there?

;

One thing that sets us apart from most graffiti sites is the quality of our photography and the fact that it’s all our own material. And with these pictures come the best interviews giving you a insight into the graffiti world. We’re creating our own unique style of photography, something that people will look at and say, “That’s done by 400mlHeroes”. We’re pushing our boundaries experimenting with different styles creating our own unique look. We’re going the extra mile to get these “Photograffs”, when we go out at night setting up shots it feels clandestine it gives us a similar feel to going out bombing. We’re setting up the shots then instead of taking a can of paint to a wall we’re painting with light. We’ve got some big ideas and we want to share them with you. In these pictures we’ve been experimenting with painting with light and exposures. Have a look and please feel free to comment on them, give us your feedback, let us know what you think.

Bomb da Base

We received intelligence from a close friend of 400ml that there was an disused cold war army base once used to make cruise missiles containing depleted uranium, we thought Diva, Vomet and Shady looked a bit green around the gills last time we saw them…..now we know why!

Shok and Awe

Where the new Walsall college stands once stood another remnant of Walsall’s industrial past.  Left to ruin it was only a matter of time before the building was used for a different purpose.  In 2001 Walsall was graced with the presence of two of Europe’s finest artists.  Seakone and Shok1, Shok was local to Walsall at the time and Seak had come to visit.  Shok and Seaks abstract and organic styles bought the place back to life one more time.

So heres another post about the area its not our first and it definitely wont be our last.
