Progress

The aim of the game is to paint as much as you can before 1pm, trying to do anything after that is a sweaty struggle in this ridiculous heat and humidity. Here’s some more photos from the front line.

 

More Photos

We’re now very happy to have the amazing photographic talents of Ian Cox from Wallkandy with us and he’s been doing a top job documenting the goings on in Kubuneh village. Here’s a few of his snaps from the village.

First Peek

Cans have been unpacked, colours chosen, brushes have been in motion and Wide Open Walls is finally fully underway. Here’s a peek at what’s been going on so far over here at Kubuneh Village.

Many more photos and posts to follow as the project progresses.

 

Diary Entry #2. There Goes the Neighborhood.

Big day yesterday. All the artists arrived into The Gambia safe and sound, all the artists apart from Ben Eine that is, who not only chose not to come, chose to tell us he wasn’t coming the day he should have been here. Big shame.

Anyway, moving on, there is an excitement in the air here, and a calm before the storm. Tomorrow we’ll all travel by boat down to Kubuneh Village for the first time and begin work. The African sun, brutal and unforgiving, will certainly take it’s toll on everyone out there, water and shade will be close allies for the next fortnight.

I’m itching to see the beginnings of what has been a years worth of planning and excitement. Not long now till the sound of spray cans shaking and the site of brush strokes and stencils.

So expect to start seeing some photos of the official beginning of Wide Open Walls at some point tomorrow.

Onwards and upwards!

When Trust is the New Money.

October is a busy month for the Broken Crow duo. Not only are they preparing work for the mud huts of The Gambia, they’re also destroying their fingers cutting stencils for their first ever collaborative solo show.

“When Trust is the New Money” opens at XYandZ Gallery on Friday, October 1st 2010 at 7:00pm. Everyone here at the W.O.W treehouse wanna wish John and Mike the best of luck with the show.
