SECRET WALLS LONDON

Secret Walls x Birmingham | Series 2 | Round 4 | Trou Vs Foka Wolf

The last of our first round battles brings new boy TROU of Column Arts Agency up against reigning champion FOKA WOLF in what promised to be a showcase of pure quality.

A lot of people in the know have fancied TROU’s chances of going all the way in this competition but, getting past champion FOKA WOLF will be very difficult … I have spoken to him personally and he is ultra determined to see off all of the opposition laid in front of him yet again!

The contender TROU managed to defeat reigning champion FOKA WOLF 3-0 and go through to the Semi finals- big things are definatly in store for this boy!

SW HK 2014

Secret Walls Hong Kong Returns……

This week HK started the second bout of Secret Walls battles with a SOLD OUT opener!

Judges included last years’ winner Mark Goss and festival-organiser Jay FC.

Stepping onto the battleground was SW veteran Jay Cadwell, versus newbie Alex Wong.

Jay competed last year, emerging as a crowd favourite, but with a bit of dutch courage from our proud sponsors, Absolut, Alex braved the stage and won their vote!

Nice one Alex. We’ll see you in round 2.

Keep up to date with battles in Hong Kong on our schedule. And if you can make it down, this year’s series is being held at The Fringe Club – one of the few listed colonial buildings surviving the concrete jungle.

Black Book Battles x Australia

BREAKING NEWS
FROM OUR RELATIVES DOWN UNDER: ***

———————————————
G’Day! How ya goin HQ?!

Been yonks since our last Secret Walls series in Sydney and Melbourne, hey? But no dramas ’cause we’ve got some mini battles going out Woop Woop. Yeah right, get this – we’re in Perth now! Bloody fair dinkum mate.

What were we thinking? Well, a little birdy told us Westraya’s “up and coming” now, meaning artists are thinking twice about their one-way ticket to Melbourne. We laughed too. So we shot the bugger and put him on the barby.

Yet, by some twist of fate, the creatives down at Form decided in April to use Perth as the playground for their urban art festival, “Public”. Strewth mate, you shoulda seen – it was going off like a frog in a sock! The city was chocka with national, and even some stray international artists, descending on the sandgropers to paint murals across the city. 45 beauties in a month. Too easy. Good on ya Perth.

And just like that, the City of Light’s snuck into the international street-art scene and given impetus to local initiatives from Art Lab, The Little Wing Corner Gallery, and the emerging Laneway Collective Project. Oh, and Secret Walls Oz of course!

We stormed into the melting pot with 2 Black Book Battle events and 23 artists locked in Artline war. The first rule of BBB is that all are welcome to the party, whatever age, experience or style. Heaps variety. Heaps fun. It’s ace mate.

Check out the work below and we’ll catch you guys later. Hooroo!
