StreetFest 2013

Making the most of the bank holiday weekend, I was really stoked to be able to join Sri McKinnon running a stall at StreetFest in Shoreditch last month, trundling a range of goodies along to this rapidly growing celebration of Live Art and Street culture.

With Global Street Art and Secret Walls providing a curated selection of artists including Captain Kris, Tizer, Candi Lo and too many more to mention, the event is as focused on its Live Art as its music, dance and sports. There were some amazing dance crews, beatbox battles and deejays giving it their best shot and loads to take a peek at, over the day.

This weekend for us though, was all about getting the stall set up within the TogetherTheyCome Market, showing folks what we do and meeting some really positive and friendly people along the way.

With a new range of tees to launch and trialing out a fresh range of bags and jewellery, a stack load of stickers and new prints were all on the stall, along with a selection of custom skate decks. Sri brought to the table her full range of hip hop and 80’s inspired handmade jewellery aswell as her illustrated cards. More of Sri’s work can be seen through her facebook page which also has links to her store.

Bomb Exhibition - PyklopsOrganised by Verity Flute and Alfie Sims this exhibition will be showing at the Black Heart, in Camden and will be opening between 5th June, through to the 26th, with a selection of Skate Decks by a wide selection of artists.

I’ve submitted a hand painted deck called ‘Ponyo’s Revenge’ which features a number of characters and has been created with a mixture of spray paint and acrylics, on a neon green maple base.

Keep an eye out for pics of the other artists work too, there’s some great work on display and its well worth checking out if you’re into board art.
