Terry Pratchett Mural Progress Day #2

Productive day of painting at the Terry Pratchett tribute mural yesterday, although of course, as always, the sun helped. The drunks didn’t, but we learned how to be friends by the end of the day.

Jim Vision headed down to finish off the monumental portrait of Terry Pratchett and the tree characters from The Reaper, and will be BACK next week with collaborator Dr Zadok. We were lucky enough to bump in to TizerOne with Kemps who were painting the back wall with some classic reaches. Look out for more Kirby artwork appearing soon and keep an eye on the @EndoftheLineLDN Twitter to find out exactly when.

Also, if you haven’t heard, we are running a competition over the next week for 1 lucky person to be in for a chance of winning some EOTL goodies. See here for full information.

Want to be in for a chance to win some EndoftheLine goodies??

Jim Vision & Dr Zadok’s Terry Pratchett tribute mural has been going to crazy across the media, and some pretty impressive photos are already in circulation, but we at EndoftheLine love to find new talent. So we’re asking YOU to head over to the wall and take your best and most creative photo of the wall and post it on Instagram to be in for a chance to win some EOTL goodies.

The photo can either be of the wall in progress, finished or of one of the artists in action – you decide. But to be in for a chance of winning you must tag the artists in your post and #TerryPratchettMural.

The wall can be found just off Brick Lane at the top of Code Street (see map below) and you can find the mural on Google Maps. The artists will be out painting on Thursday 9th & Friday 10th April 2015.

Meeting of Styles UK 2014

It seems a long time gone now but we’ve been gathering our images, finishing up wall spots and awaiting incoming photos from all over London of the recent Meeting of Styles weekender.

We were joined by around 60 artists this year, as far afield as Brazil, who came in full force and high spirits to paint our town styley. We had wall spots scattered all over Shoreditch from Hewett Street to Pedley Street and all the bits in between and had a main site just off Pedley street in an old abandoned waste land with one of the best wall spots in London.

We started the event with a Meeting of Styles pre-party that coincided with the first Thursday of the month, and knowing that this is our arty people’s favourite day, we offered a special serving of live Brazilian painting by FPLO, Saci & Bronco who brightened up our rooftop with tropical inspired, brightly coloured, large scale artworks. It was the perfect start to the fun-filled weekend, the sun was shining, the artists were slowly arriving to size up their wall spaces, music was in full swing with funky beats from Sugai and Maj Duckworth; a not-so-calm party before the storm.

By the time Saturday morning had arrived our walls were ready, our beat boxers were in position and the food was getting HOT. We were joined by Elephant Shack serving delicious lamb & chickpea flat breads, Mama’s Jerk Station making their signature badman jerk chicken & Coffee Space who introduced us to next level concepts on coffee brewing. Our main man Bass6 managed to arrange the Beatbox Collective and the great Super Scratch Sundays fam, and Congo Natty’s DJ Snuff who placed themselves in sweet spots on route to give passers by a heads up and word up and a damn good job they did too.

On the main Pedley street site we had true graffiti writers Vibes, Twesh, Gent 48, Sokemone, Ders & Odisy. Shoreditch Underground boasted the talents of CHU, Inkfetish, Brave1, Louis Masai, Jasik, Mr Cenz, Crymein, Snoe, Aero, BRK, Aeon & Ventsa. Beyond that were Kaes & False on the entrance of Pedley Street, and then a short walk round the corner on Sclater street we had the lovely bunch from the Lost Souls crew; SPZero76, Captain Kris, Squirl & Si Mitchell. Besides them Die Dixons fresh off the boat from ze Deutschland and THEN opposite those guys were the mighty Tizer, Stika, Lovepusher, Aeon & Wisher & 3dom…phew! But that wasn’t all, head left off Sclater street and you were met by Astek, FPLO, Vodka, Dep, Wrist, Arise & Traffik pulling in the crowds on Braithwaite street, Inkie, Sepr & Dank took over New Inn Yard’s original courtyard theatre. Painting over in the King John Car Park were Jive, Chuckone, Amuk. Candy Lo, AR, Elph & Hicks painted a beautiful under water scene harmoniously on Whitfield street, Zina took a short space round from there on Chance street and the classic duo Zadok & Jim Vision headed over to their trusty spot on Redchurch street. Finally back at the MOS HQ, Replete, Title, Riot & OTwo were jazzing up Hewett Street ready for people to return for a well deserved boozer.

There was a LOT of walking involved but it was well worth it to see these legendary artists in action. The founder of MOS Manuel even popped in for a surprise visit from Germany. We cried.

We came back this year for the 5th time running Meeting of Styles UK, took a totally different approach to it and couldn’t have been happier. We cannot be more grateful to our wonderful crew and artists and everyone that got involved to make MOSUK14 possible. And an extra thanks to all of you who came down and have been posting photos well after the event.

Till next year kids, when we’ll bigger, better and potentially out of London…

So much love!
