So Boswell and Pen were painting down at Upfest the other weekend, and Vermin was around too, but decided to do his own thing rather than paint there. Here’s a couple of snaps of Vermin’s work from over the weekend…
First, a spot of painting on the practice boards at the end of Ashley Road, which, incidentally have been getting better and better over time.
‘Here’s to the guys with corporate logos’
and a projection on the side of the Tobacco Factory later in the evening – ‘Fuck you you have really depressed me’
On a similar tip, this is the painting you weren’t allowed to see there. A piece by LL Brainwashed, lovingly titled ’2 Bags of Brown, A Chicken Licken and 2 Solpadiene Max’
Apparently the organisers said it couldn’t be displayed or sold at the show, which seems a bit contrary to the spirit of where ‘street’ and ‘urban’ art came from in the first place.
