It’s all about paint and pens…

Long gone are the days of racking paint, we know it still goes on but it’s no where near as bad as it was back in the day. There are shops selling paint all over the place now whether it’s a walk in shop or an online store it’s now easily available to buy. Our local store The Bench 504 is in the Custard factory Birmingham, It’s run by Rob and he sells most paint and pens and has a good selection of clothes and accessories in there as well. He’s been good enough to let us do a few shots in the shop like the Montana hardcore limited edition full set and he’s got a nice selection of old Krylon which he let us take some pics of. If your in Birmingham the bench is definitely worth a visit.

While out visiting Amsterdam Meek had the opportunity to visit one of Europe’s finest graff shops Henxs it’s stocked up with everything you could possibly need for weekends painting in Amsterdam. Another highly recommended place to visit if your ever in the area.

Tempo 33 Jam.

5 Years ago Tempo 33 was born…you’ve seen him popping up all around Birmingham over the past five years.  There was a good showing from some of the Midlands best Graffiti artists including Zuki, Corsa, Meek, Chu, Newso, Ziner, Fuels and Fluid to name a few despite the bitter cold.  We we’re there throughout the day but returned midweek to put our own special mark on the event with some Heavy Light NTC.

Dossin in Digbeth

We went to meet our old muccas Chu and Fluid in Birmingham last Saturday to get some paint from the bench and to discuss what was going on for Tempo’s birthday jam the day after. Chu and Fluid were fashionably late so we went for a wander around Digbeth and saw this wall that had been recently painted by Newso, Lewes,Fluid and Skank.

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.
