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
Here is my contribution to the Boy soldier show. The show comprises of 40 panels created by that master of the cast Schoony. The show opens next friday with a private view on the Thursday the 2nd. It opens in the east end and then travels to the west

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. Riding high on the success of last years stunning Brooklyn show that combined gallery and street based works, the Nuart team plan an even bigger show for the streets of Stavanger, Norway. 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. City wide the buzz word this years seems to be GO BIG! With cherry pickers being towed in from all over the west coast to guarantee that this years artists can reach the parts other painters cannot reach.
