We we’re invited to paint a small part of a Hidden beauty project in Eindhoven. In the background of the wooden fence graphic elements of the new logo of Eindhoven had to be incorporated. We kept it pretty graphical.
The wall will stay up till the end of 2014. It’s located right in the backside of the central trainstation of Eindhoven.

Thanks to Dave and Vincent for the invite.

We went for a few days to Cambridge to do some pieces at the Alfresh.co shop and hang out with Kakerholic and Bonzai.
As soon as we arrived in London we were picked up by the airport and went straight to Alfresh.co to paint the London underground subway car at their premises. They had a little surprise for us: Smug was there also for the weekend and he came along to do a quick background on a wall with us the next day. Also Lovepusher joined the second day to paint with us on the wall… On the last day we painted the New York subway car replica in typical English weather (rain), but we managed to pull off a decent piece….
We had a lot of laughs and a great time! A special thanks goes out to Big Dave for having the greatest paintshop on the planet. If you want to paint the alfresh.co express also, just drop a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and then it can be arranged. And offcourse massive thanks to Kakerholic and Bonzai…

We painted this production in our hometown Sneek. It took us 2 days to complete the wall. We also painted his cousin Slowpoke rodriguez. We got a lot of positive reactions on this wall. It’s funny to see that the younger generation doesn’t know the Speedy Gonzales character at all while most older people yell ‘arriba arriba’ all the time when they pass by the wall…

We painted this wall at the springtime festival in Belgium earlier this year. We did multicoloured outlines for a change. This often works very well.

In the Netherlands and some other countries the comic is called Suske & Wiske, but in other countries it’s also known as: Bob & Bobette / Finn & Fiffi / Willy & Wanda and a couple of other names. During our childhood we did read a lot of these comics and we wanted to pay tribute to it. Of course with a little twist to it, as we usually do when painting these kind of concept walls.
The wall is painted in the characteristic style of the cover of the albums; with warm red background (done with roller paint) and the title in the same letter style as the comic to give it the exact feeling as if looking at an original album cover. We gave it the title ‘de baldadige broeders’ (which can be translated as’ the nasty brothers’).
All the main characters of the comic can be found on the wall and also a Dns piece to make it more ’streetwise’. The background was improvised on the spot by looking through various albums we brought with us. Because of the size of the wall the very small details where added with a black Molotow one4all marker, to give the wall some extra detail. All in all again this was a very fun project to do! On to the next one…

Weather temperatures in Holland are still pretty much below zero, sowe decided to do another indoor spot. Indoor spots are good for trying new directions and are fun to do during the winterseason.
We had the idea of making rather simple pieces which are partly disintegrated by a tornado.
We painted the wall with a selection of greys from the belton range.
We kept the style of the pieces pretty basic because after adding all the effects we wanted the letters to still stand out and not becoming unreadable.
First we painted a comic style tornado in the middle.
Next we started painting the letters and put an outline around it and added a simple 3d.
After that it was time to add the movement lines in the fill and 3d to create a motion effect.
To spice it up we added some dirt all over the piece to make it look more realistic.
The transparant black came in handy for some drop shadows.
The last thing was to add some finishing touches such as adding the crewname inside the tornado and do some minor touch-ups.
All in all it was a good exercise and the effects work well.

We’re working on several projects right now so there has been a lack of updates…
We did a little indoor wall with script letters and a lizard character. Walls like this are fun to do.

We did paint a remake of a genuine classic from the United Street Artists from Amsterdam.
They made the original in 1985 for a tv-program called “jonge helden” (young heroes).
The making of this piece can be seen here > click <
Years ago we already had the idea to do a remake and then change the title into “ouwe helden”(old heroes) because the guys who made this went from young men into oldschool writers.
At first we talked about making the piece with the paint and skills of today but we decided that it was better to keep it as close as possible to the original, so we used ‘Sparvar’ spraypaint and some cheap other paint to give it the oldschool look.
The United Street Artists crew was the best graffiticrew from Holland in the eighties. The members Shoe,Jezis,Joker,Delta,and Jaz are considered legends who inspired us and many others. This remake is a Tribute to the teachers and a reminder of old times,good times,Better times!
Below you see the original piece. The remake can be seen here > click <

A while ago Serval (from Switserland) made a dope sketch for us. He made a very clever design, if you read it normal, you see a ‘MEGA’ with a character and background, and if you put it upside down it reads ‘ROMEO’, also with a character and background… This was a real challenge for us to make, since the placing of some lines are very important otherwise it doesn’t work on both sides.
Offcourse we wanted to paint it on an object which can be flipped upside down. We thought of making it on a car, but no one would let us put their car upside down (which is understandable)…
Romeo came up with a 3 x 3 m banner which could be mounted on a big frame used for advertising….
So this meant we had to paint pretty small. From earlier experience we did knew that Molotow cans do the trick when it comes to paint small, so we went for that….
It was indeed tricky to get the lines right but we think the mission is accomplished….
Check the endresult here >clickety clack< Here you can see both pieces in one design..
Thank you Serval for the sketch and Interlinie for letting us paint one of your banners.
