The first of the Vapour Trail series, an up & coming series of videos that will showcase artists who have made an important contributions to the current street scene and represent the culture of graffiti art today. As the Vapour Trail continues to grow and promote the key aesthetics of these artists and put across their signature styles that we have known to love them by.
We start the Vapour Trail with world renowned graffiti artist and good friend SheOne.

We’ve been seeing a lot of this guys recently. From his work on the street, in the Futurism 2.0 exhibition, at our White Canvas Project exhibition and more – but finally, close friend of EOTL is bringing us his solo exhibition! Entitled ‘Blackatelier’ Sheone shows us a range of work that gives us a little insight into his ongoing aesthetic journeys. He says “In graffiti you have to be prepared to walk away from your works. What is important is committing to a moment and the experience of making the works.This latest show captures fragments of these journeys, externalised private moments, experience translated into permanance.”
Sheone’s work is a movement, a step away from the idiocies of street art and his latest collection is no different. His rapid lines and over-sprayed motions make his work immediately recognisable and is renowned worldwide. He has travelled from Hong Kong, New York, Tokyo, Paris and now resides in Spain but we lucky people will be able to view his solo show from the 26th October at the Ar-tel Gallery in Bristol.
The show will open at 6pm and will be open daily until the 17th November at Art-el, The College, Marksbury Road, Bristol BS3 5JJ.

Last week, incase you didn’t hear (impossible) EndoftheLine co-hosted, along with friends Supreme Being, The White Canvas Project Exhibition Part III. And though we have already posted about what went down over the time it was open – we’ve been getting photos back, left, right & centre so we obviously had to share them with y’all.
All photos taken by Toby Summerskill – and a fine job too!
Those of you who are lucky enough to be travelling down Great Eastern Street everyday to work will have seen this wall progressing over the past few days. Today friend of EndoftheLine and fellow artist participating in The White Canvas Project, Will Barras arrived to put the final piece in place.
If you’re in the area come take a look – and keep the 11th Oct free in your diaries because all 4 artists as well as others will be showcasing their work at The White Canvas Project exhibition which will be taking place just next to the wall. It’s gonna be a good night!
Yesterday at 6.58 we were so excited we could pee….even though we were outside in the rain waiting for the doors to open, it was worth the wait. And boy have we been waiting!
It is said that “In 1912, just three years after the manifesto was published, the Futurists exhibited in London for the first time. A hundred years later on September 27th, 2012, just three years after the creation of Graffuturism.com, the Graffuturists will exhibit for the first time in London at Blackall Studios.”
THE IDEALS OF DYNAMISM AND PROGRESSION
So yer, last night was a pretty big deal, and needless to say, the show did not disappoint. With mind boggling work from some killer artists such as Mr Jago, Sheone, Otwo, Poesia & so so many more, the show was a perfect mix of architectural street art, defined lines, incredible depth and explosions of colour.
If I were you i’d make like Tulisa and get down there quick, because we don’t know when it ends…and you don’t wanna miss this!

Down here at EndoftheLine we sure know how to party – so when it was time for the Hewett Street block party that took place on Saturday, we were there cans in hand at the ready!
The event was run by our neighbours Protein who put on an amazing event with Wu themed fun and some great stalls. So feeling festive we put on a stall right in the entrance, we were customising t-shirts and tote bags for everyone to take a little piece of our hearts away with them. As well as this Jim Vision gathered a crew of the finest street artists and wowed the crowed with some live painting! Giving the walls behind Rockwell House a sweet new look. We had Andrea, Sheone, BRK, Cept, O-Two & of course Probs and the work is still here if you wanna come and have a peek for yourselves!
