What a great night and a great show! My worries about how all of these would look in one place were unfounded, it rocked! Amazing show not to be missed. All the artists really worked hard on this one, every Boy Soldier looked totally different and you could tell the substrate stretched the imagination. All the artists i talked to said that they struggled with these incredible panels, changing their minds many times on what to paint on them. Make sure you pop in, these are well worth the visit

Well its that time of year again. The preparations are underway for the mother of all street art festivals, the first and the best, Nuart 2010.

Running for the month of September, Nuart amasses some of the biggest names in urban art, for a show that pervades the city, joining works from previous years in a town that is fast becoming one of the worlds largest street art collections.

Boy Soldier

Its a great line up, and a blinding substrate! Definitely not one to miss! In two locations so you have no excuse, now all i have to do is paint my one, at least i didn’t have to make 30 of these things like Tristan had to.
