So, Secret Wars is rolling into town tomorrow night. It’s been an odd one this a bit, info on it’s been light on the ground until late in the day, and lots of people you’d think would have heard about it don’t seem to have done, so not sure how ‘graffy’ it’s going to be.
It’s at Blue Mountain on Saturday night though, and the info they’re putting out on Facebook promises a lot, so who knows?
Secret Wars has finally arrived in Bristol town. We wanted to do this right and give everyone in Bristol something to shout about.
The same rules apply, you know the format by now. 90 minutes on the clock, black edding pens, go big or go home….standard.
We’ve got a great line up, which will be announced closer to the time. So keep checking the site, http://www.secretwars.co.uk
Richard Ashworth and Mark Anthony are dealing with the music supply on both floors of the Blue Mountain Club. There’s going to be a load of blank boards set up around the place for all you budding artists.
Remember, Secret Wars is launching a euro league in 2010 and we’re scouting for artists to represent Bristol. So this is your chance to get yourself and your work out there.
It’s a battle style format, as they say
The Secret Wars concept is a one on one art battle between two artists using black marker pens on a white [battle ground] board. The idea being to out draw and humiliate your opponents character/city/crew/logo
Representing London are Disco Teck and Mr Gauky, whilst representing Bristol are Andy Council and Lorenzo. Which in the context of the above seems a bit odd in a way, as at least one of those two would be the first to admit he’s not a battling writer.
That said, rather than a one off thing, it looks like the event’s going to be;
a showcase event (to) give artists and public an opportunity to understand the secret wars concept and find out about the Bristol team selection process.
So it’s not the main thing then, more something to get people knowing about and interested in the chance to apply to be in the Bristol team for the Secret Wars events coming up across Europe.
So, it’s Blue Mountain, there’s painting, music and a bar, and sounds like you can have a paint too if you fancy. Definitely worth wandering down to, not least for the sight of the ever illin’ Andy Council battling to burn someone else’s crew to a soundtrack of phat beats.
Worth getting in touch with them if you fancy representing Bristol across Europe too it seems.
Will be interested to see what happens on the night.
