International street art festival – Bring The Paint


We love working in the cultural quarter. This week, Bring The Paint  – the international street art festival – has been taking place on our doorstep – and it’s bloody awesome.


 We couldn’t help but take to the streets for a little look-see ourselves – along with taking a few snaps of some of the quality artwork that has been popping up over the last few days. The time lapse video is of the huge head literally next door to the Arch studio which has been meticulously constructed by internationally renowned artist Smug over the past few days. You can see some of his other artwork here. Smug puts small creatures into a lot of his work. We’ve got a rat.

The Cultural Quarter just became a bit more cultural – as if that were possible. The artworks are adorning the walls of the streets around us including inside the LCB Depot, around Phoenix and even on Curve’s glass frontage.

Arch client FunkNation will be holding an after party at the Sound House on Saturday – which you can see below covered in waves. Sound waves at a guess.

Get yourself down to the Cultural Quarter over the weekend as it plays host to all of this amazing art work along with music, street food, skateboarding, breakdancing, BMXing and a range of creative activities and exhibitions.
