SNUB23 CRUSHED THE JUNK YARD JAM 2019

img_20190707_151048ed.jpg

WE SMASHED IT, QUITE LITERALLY, AT URBAN ARTISTRY’S JUNK YARD JAM IN CREWE.

We were in our element on the Junk Yard. Surrounded by filth, rust and smashed up electronics and cars. The junk yard felt like a dystopian cyber wasteland which fitted our style perfectly, we had to take advantage and paint as many beautifully gnarly surfaces as we could.

We woke up bright and early on the day of the jam as we were eager to get started. The first thing we painted was a 6 wheel fibreglass Mini Bus. We started by throwing buckets water over the Van and painting it as the water dripped off to give  a distressed background. On top of this we painted a SNUB Robot and Orange Isometric Cubes.

Next we painted an old metal drum which was inside one of the Junk Yard Jam warehouses. The drum was covered in rust, peeling paint at massive dents. Everyone was confused as to why we wanted to paint something so awkward and messed up, but to us it was perfect.

We painted the drum with SNUB23’s Iconic Robot and Red Isometric cubes. Then to make the whole piece feel like it had always been painted like that we took a scouring pad to the whole thing and scratched off the paint to reveal the beautiful rusty textures underneath.

Our final piece at Urban Artistry’s Junk Yard Jam excluding a few cheeky ISO’s hidden in places was a giant metal box. We have no idea what this was originally but it had the perfect rust surface which we utilised to our advantage and only painted the outline of the SNUB Robot so it looked like the rusty metal was the surface of the robot.

OH WE FORGOT TO MENTION ONE THING…

ONCE WE HAD FINISHED PAINTING THEM… THEY CRUSHED THEM!

We cannot thank the Junk Yard Jam Guys enough for their incredible hospitality and general greatness. We had the best time.

We also have to thank Graff City and Kobra Paint as always for supplying us with paint.

YARDWORKS 2019 MURAL GLASGOW

YARDWORKS GLASGOW 2019

YARDWORKS GLASGOW 2019

In May we spent 3 days painting at Scotland’s only street art graffiti festival YARDWORKS in Glasgow alongside 120 other artists. 11,000 members of the public visited SWG3 where the event was held over the weekend and just like every year the sun was shining.

It was great fun painting this mural. Especially the roughed up “rust” background technique, which contrasts the sharp lines of the sketch and the crispness of our isometric cube designs.

Since “Yardworks” first started back in 2017 we haven’t missed an event!

Thank you to all the wonderful people who came to visit us and came to say hello throughout the event and a huge thank you to Gaz Mac,  Marriene Vosloo and all the other organisers who make Yardworks so fantastic.
The finished mural can be found at the entrance to the SWG3 building on Eastvale Place.
Spray paint supplied by Kobra Paint.

Snub23 Polyhedron

I answered a few questions before the show opened for VERY NEARLY ALMOST. See it here and below

With his first big event of the year, cyborg heavy-hitter Snub is treating us to POLYHEDRON, an all-new solo show in Southsea, Portsmouth, between the 2nd and the 30th of April. One of the key themes in the exhibition is to capture demonstrate the scope of the Brighton-based graphic artist, as mentioned when we caught up with him for a quick interview about the new show.

“The name of the show ‘Polyhedron’ means ‘one solid, many facets’, this also fits my artwork. Anyone who follows my work knows I don’t stick to one technique. I sketch, stencil, brush, sticker, paste, craft and paint.” He explained, before warning that this new body of work may not be exactly what his fans normally see. “I guess I’m known for ‘mongrel’ the robot inspired by my childhood comic book hero’s the ABC warriors, he appears in this show but isn’t the main feature.”

The show is held at Play Dead Studios, an uncommon merger between tattoo studio and creative exhibition space. Making the most of the unique venue Snub has created a custom set of 10 tattoo flashes to run alongside the exhibition, each to be inked only once by the artists at Play Dead. “The crossover is perfect for my work.” Snub began, “we already have bookings and think some may even be inked by the time the show opens on Friday. I plan to then frame some of the designs.”

“The shift between me painting a fictional character and it becoming something more solid and real happened couple of years ago. I started to introduce a skull into my robot sketches which led to more realistic looking creatures and people. The difference between human and robot in my sketches blurred and they became one.” This metamorphosis between robotic and biological is demonstrated best in HYBRID, Snub’s self-proclaimed favourite piece from the show, “A brushed acrylic piece. It’s either a human being revealed as a robot or the other way round and it’s about not knowing.”

The most iconic pieces from the show are undoubtedly his formidable garrison of overhead masks in all their mechanised glory. “The masks developed from conversations with good friends and a model maker, it started with a full skull and developed into the masks. Firstly a cardboard prototype which is layered with resin, sculpted and sanded. Then that’s the master for making a cast. This is then used to produce more but these are reinforced with fibreglass.” However he was unwilling to take all of the credit for the pieces, stating, “I’m really happy how they turned out but I can’t claim all the credit in their realisation, without Ed Nottingham they wouldn’t have gotten this far. We have other plans for the future and with these new customs even more ideas have sprung up.”

Especially created for the solo show, Snub has released five blank masks to a group of hand selected artists to bring their signature styles to each cyborg head, although through the variety of artists involved some unexpected results arose. “My Dog Sighs has given his an aged metal effect and realistic eyes, which freaked me out the first time I saw it. Also Aremsee is an artist currently working on the Star Wars movies and has blasted one side of a mask painted with actual stormtrooper paint. Nerd alert! I’ve yet to see Fark’s and Betso’s but I know they’ll be killer.”

The show’s opening night is tonight from 7pm and it runs right up until the end of the month so if you are in the south of the country at any point over April it is definitely worth a look. As well as picking up your one-off Snub inking, a limited run t shirts has also been created to commemorate the event so make sure you head on down there, the more the merrier. “A SNUB army would be glorious.”

We Are Pseudonym (WAP) are getting a serious team of graffiti artists together in Portsmouth on 29th January 2011. The event, entitled ‘The Utility Of Space’ will see respected artists such as Aroe (MSK + HA), Trans 1 (TND + AP), Gary (MSK + HA), Ebee (TND), Fark FK (TND + PAM), Snub 23 (GW), and many more, all coming together to paint hoardings around the iconic Zurich House in the city centre.  The event will be the first of its kind to attract such big names to the seaside city, but hopefully it won’t be the last. Long time collaborators Pseudonym and Fark FK are helping lead the way in the upsurge of street art and graffiti projects in Portsmouth and Southsea. Aiming to reclaim some of the under developed or forgotten areas of the city for more creative and inspirational use, We Are Pseudonym are hopeful that Portsmouth is taking the first steps to a more colourful future.
