Lakeside

In May us 2, Vomet and Bert took a drive down to Dartmouth to visit Lakeside where one of the legendry jams was taking place. Vomet was painting so we decided to jump in and take a look. The lakeside wall isn’t exactly legal but the sites tolerated by the owners. It’s massive! one of the longest single walls in Europe weighing in at approximately 2km long and it’s all painted. You get the odd fisherman when the tides in and a few dirt bikes but that’s it as the path ends at a petrol storage depot and you cant get any further….we tried. There was a decent turnout considering the weather wasn’t the best, but it’s definitely a spot to visit in the sun.

The Lakeside Graff Jam was started in 2010 by Tony Keen, Fivethree, Stamp and Sian.E as the old School Reunion and Graff Jam. Even for its first outing it was big with over 30 of some of the best artists – Old School and new School painting alongside each other at this reunion. The event continued in 2011 with Sian.E and Colt 45 and slammed it with over 58 artists repping with some incredible piece of work. There were again old School, new School and artists from all over the UK, top names and top pieces. 2012 saw the third year but despite the horrendous rain 20+ artists showed and produced some quality pieces. A second event for 2012 is to be organised for July time (weather permitting) for those that didn’t make it the first time round and is promising to be even bigger than the previous 3.

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.

Running Amuk in Tamworth.

So yet again we’ve been out and about in Tamworth, we’d gone down there with Diva for a specific reason which will hopefully be put up next week. While we were down there we noticed that Amuk had done a very nice full wall piece, and given the size of the walls at Tamworth thats no mean feat to do by yourself. We were joined later on by Mr Vomet who gave us a hand with some pyrotechnics cause apparently he “Loves burning shit” he then insisted on striking one of his very best catalogue poses for a shot by a very nice piece of his that he did the weekend.

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….
