Art In My Mouth

By Cheffo31

Over the past weekend something quite special took place in a location not normally known for it’s Street Art prowess.

VNA was asked to support this unknown show, and was eager to see how it would unfold. We took the trip up to Norwich, yes home of Coleman’s Mustard, The Canaries, and was the 90’s territory for Global Graffiti head Shok-1. I’d seen the flyer and couldn’t believe the bill! The London Police? Really in Norwich, is this for real?? Alongside Mr. Penfold, Millo, Miss Wah, RX Skulls…and a host of other international and local artists! Blimey! It was a no-brainer. The show named ‘Art In My Mouth’ was the creation of curator Frazer Bailey, a young guy with a great passion for Street Art whose collective Moosey Art hosted the event @Stew Gallery and Print Rooms, a non-profit making organisation run by volunteers founded in 2008, providing open access screen printing facilities for paper and textiles.

A great white walled space that would have equally been at home in East London. The walls of four rooms were adorned with canvases, framed prints, painted skate decks and other painted materials of real high quality. In the main room a collaborated live drawing session was taking place with local artists mixing it with the globally renowned names with a rare collaboration between TLP & Mr Penfold. It was a very enjoyable evening, and hopefully the first of many, and after speaking to Frazer his passion was obvious when he explained how he wanted to “Make Norwich a similar destination to Bristol with some BIG walls” this was a bold statement indeed, but something that would certainly put Norwich on the map, and hopefully with the support of other international artists something could happen in the East!
As well as the show The London Police and Mr Penfold teamed up to paint the interior of a local hangout The Birdcage in Norwich’s Lanes district.

Jana & JS

An interview by Cheffo31 – www.wallsandpictures.blogspot.co.uk

It’s been a month or so since the photographic stencilling couple Jana & JS were on these shores, with amazing pieces painted and pasted around Shoreditch, and the gigantic mural in Blackpool for ‘Sun, Sea & Spray’. Well a lot has been happening since, so here’s a few questions I fired at them to help understand where it begun and what it takes to create such work.

Nychos is smashing London right now…

Long time friend and photo contributor to VNA, CHEFFO31 captures these shots of Nychos & Vibes painting on the weekend!

There is much disappointment amongst the London graffiti and street art community as news filters through that the buff take away yet another pair of works of art, hours after completion…angry?! You bet! So whilst standing in Brick Lane on Saturday I get wind of some serious painting taking place over at Trellick Towers…the names Nychos, Vibes, Tizer and Roids are enough for me to straddle the bike and make haste while there was enough light. On arrival it’s like a who’s who of writers of varying styles. Totally unprepared with no SLR I have to start firing with the iPhone and capture some shots of two of my favourite writers Nychos and Vibes. Their contrasting styles of sick lines and wild font against gruesome exploded animal matter is immense and I stand in awe of two guys who love to paint and are so fluid in what they do. Having a brief conversation mid session with Nychos about his plans I learn that he’s over for a couple of weeks with big plans of big walls! Let’s hope the bloody English summer sorts it’s act out and let’s us bare witness to something great… No not the ruddy Olympics….more great work from our Austrian visitor. Here’s a selection of shots. I was fortunate enough to shoot some shots with Vibes SLR to record the work, I need to get hold of them believe me!
