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.

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.

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.
