As we descend towards the end of the year and the impending end of 2014 lists compiling the best & worst of the year, at AboutToBlow we’ve always held an inherent interest in the arts. Since the beginnings of the site we’ve only been able to scratch the surface and highlight such a compelling sector with minimal interest – until now…
To round things off this autumn/winter we decided to team up with the uber-talented artist Danny Mendoza – AKA Zinc Styles – to conjure up an introductory project for team ATB on the base of West London’s Trellick tower to create an original mural piece in the authorized graffiti area which would remain on show for the by-passers to admire.
Filmed and edited by the team, this is a one-off, introductory creation for our new Arts section which seeks to introduce and highlight the best of artistic talent working in your local area. With more content than ever and some incredible exclusives on the way, what better way to celebrate than painting a 15foot wide version of our logo in West London!
Keep an eye out on our ‘Arts Department’ in 2015, this will consist of regular videos and features showcasing the incredible arts scene we have here in the UK via artists and events in London, Nottingham, Bristol and Brighton.
Having curated a diverse & stunning variety of installations, portraits & murals at across Europe including Outlook and Ceremony Festival in the last few months alone, be sure to check out Zincstyles’ work via his Facebook page here, rest assured when we say it’s talent beyond measure!
