GRL @ Tate Modern

Coinciding with Tate Moderns first ever street art exhibition, Graffiti Research Lab and myself were asked to do our thing at 'Raw Canvas', a Tate Studio event.

We (Chu, Jimi Crayon, Alfa, Teck) kicked off with some live drawing on the black glass walls of cafe 2, and once the crowds were inspired, they were let loose with a massive box of Edding pens in the annex. The turn out was impressive, with 700 people going through the doors, and many having to queue in the rain for ages to get in.

The highlight of the evening was GRL's Laser Tag display. Due to the wet weather we could only work in the turbine hall, but managed to get a few 50 ft wide reaches! I could have played on that thing all night.

Chu's 'your mum rang' went down a treat...

Secret Wars x Youtube x Google

Secret Wars were asked to paint at the Zeitgeist Europe 2008 Gala Dinner @ The Grove, Watford. The show included the most popular acts on Youtube including Beardyman, Mia Rose and the Vagabonds breakdance crew to name a few. Jimi Crayon, Stika, Mr k and the Disco Teck warmed things up with a display of live illustration. Due to security at the party (with Gordon Brown and the Queen of Jordan in attendance) we were not allowed to enjoy the open bar and other live acts, so the crew headed to the hotel bar for an evening of overpriced drinks and unacceptable behavior.
