A few months back I was asked to be a part of an event for Off Sonar 2018 which would involve five street artists live painting at the event whilst the DJ’s and house/DnB lovers did their thing in the arena.
It all fell a bit silent for a few months but the week before the event it was suddenly all go and I was tasked with getting the artists together to create their masterpieces at the event. The event was mostly house and DnB but as Moritz Barcelona were the sponsors the theme had to include their beer or at least the colours of the company, blue and yellow.
I was fortunate enough to get five wonderful artists in time, Ives one, Tim Marsh, Maga Illustration, Ioke and Oreo. Unfortunately the event didn’t go perfectly well and there were plenty of issues over the four days it was held but at the very least it was a very important learning experience for me and also for some of the artists.
Below are some shots of the event which even with some of the issues encountered has only wetted my appetite for organising street art events in the future.
Also a side note, getting shots of Ives in action are like gold dust, he only seems to paint when you are not around!
