Vernissage ( a fancy word for Party)

On 30 June the King’s Land will be completed, officially. As you will know if you’ve been following this blog, it’s been a good few months of making murals and remaking them. After June 30 though, the murals will stay as they are until the building comes down, in late autumn. I’ll have covered every building on the estate.

So, those of you who are in or near London, please do come on Saturday and celebrate the project. I can’t promise great weather, but I can promise art and music.


in the news again

It’s great how the local press is getting behind the project, thanks Hackney Citizen and Hackney Gazette! And all the London and Street Art blogs! I really appreciate it!

and it’s great that people come back to see the progress of the murals –

The weather’s still vile but the work is all ready to rock out, and so as soon as we get the go ahead from the Weatherman we’ll get a full enhanced crew out there to blast the site with the biggest most astonishing creatures your deepest depths of imagination never conjured up!

this is just one tiny section of the creature!

This one’s done

The weather has been really awful for April! Very cold, which makes it hard to be mobile when dong the fine work, and occasional very heavy showers that come and undo your work soon as you’re happy with it.

Still, we’re going strong. This wall on Laburnum Street was completed yesterday:


Something to remember

tanbouli & Manz 2012

Yesterday I finished working on the 3rd mural, the collaboration with Valentine Manz. It was a really interesting experience as I’m not really the collaborating  type but as I said before, I love Valentin and his work , being with him feels like being with Juan Miro, not that I’ve been
hanging out with Miro but this how I expect him to be like … just another Valentin.
Anyway, we did it and we got accused of witch-craft by one of the locals while we were at it, which give us something to remember.

As for what is next, I don’t know. I will go and walk around the block a few times until  my
next wall calls me.
