Eurocultured 2010

This weekend was Eurocultured, it was in the city of Manchester, where you see many new contemporary architectural landmarks and then a very small London eye ride mmmmm.

This weekend was Eurocultured, mainly an art festival where the streets are taken over by artists and semi sober people who either like art, music or drinking etc...

The work produced by the artists this weekend was great fun to watch, the chosen medium for most this  weekend was spray, but i was happily armed with a bag full of  Posca's!

I ended up working on two locations with two different style of art, one of which was inside the FONT bar, where I had the DJ area portion of the bar to paint and i created a Fake Gallery of artwork, with new pieces on plinths and strange sculptures including the "Fish Munga". and some rather nice sunken spray cans.

The other piece i put up this weekend was outside of FONT bar on the street, i covered over a small black door and where it goes nobody knows.

The piece i chose to paint was a Fishy themed piece, no name as such, but i really liked it's hybrid body and human head in a diving mask space helmet kind of thing. For this piece i smashed up a background of colour in Posca, and then worked over the top of it to create the effect of depth.  

I had a really good weekend with my new friends.... BIG THANKS to Big Rich, Sumit and the rest of the organisers!
