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.

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.
This year the international graffitti festival Step in The Arena will celebrate their 6th Edition. What back in 2010 began as a festival where young and established talents could meet, quickly grew into the unique international festival it is nowadays.
