Southend Arts Festival 2021
Scotty Brave and @sterupc wall from last week.
Recently I was asked by @theartistjohnbulley to organise the street art part of the Southend art Festival.
It's long been my ambition to transform areas of my town (southend) with some decent street art. Luckily round here we are spoilt for choice when it comes to Artists that are handy with a spraycan. So I rounded up some of my friends (Essex locals) and set about planning to transform the Clarence Rd carpark into Southends street art Quarter. With help from Southend Council kiwiproductions and my old mates macbuild @nikvaughn and @ekto1 and @cryola1 we managed to vastly improve this wall in the centre of town.
@systemwise for street art consultation through @Brave_Arts
The Making Waves event saw walls in Clarence Road car park transformed into stunning works of art by Daniel Kitchener ( DANK ), Karl Sims Sims, Nicola Cry CRY and Scotty Brave Brave.
Head into town now and catch a glimpse of these amazing murals!

Basildon Street Art Festival
This glitched princess face is what I painted as part of the final celebration of the Basildon Arts Festival.
There was a street art festival in Basildon this summer.
It was lucky to be a part of it, working as assistant to the mighty @insa_gram who painted a massive piece.
Yesterday on the festivals final day,
I painted my piece alongside Live painting, walking tours of the new murals, workshops, music and more all day, all free.
Scotty Brave was well happy about working alongside his old friend INSA in Basildon recently. Basildon Born Scott went back to his roots & Helped create this huge mural as part of a recent street art festival in Basildon.
@ourtownsbas have been working with some incredible street artists and some equally incredible members of our community to create these beautiful pieces of art that symbolise what's important to us all. They could be just around the corner so keep your eyes peeled.
Over the next few weeks we'll be sharing each #Mural and artist to give a proper understanding of their work and how the Basildon community helped put it together, so keep an eye on our page and let us know what you think of the pieces. If you spot any of them on your travels don't forget to share them with us

Anglian Water & SAVS

New space for street art at skatepark
launched the Leigh street art wall last weekend. With the help of zarjaz, @hiltgraffiti and the legend @ster.upc
3 local graffiti artists with roots in the foundations of the local scene
Big thanks to the leigh town council for supporting the building of this wall and the return of spraycan art to leigh skatepark. Forward thinking councils that accommodate spaces for the practice of urban disciplines are excellent leaders.
We used to paint the leigh skatepark when it was wooden 20rs ago @buskone_ @ethospws @mute1one
It helped keep us out of trouble and gave us somewhere to practice our art safely and legally.
We christened the new extention to the Skate park on Sunday and intend on renewing the art work regularly so when you're passing come n have a look
When the Skate Park was refurbished last year, Leigh Town Council decided to re-instate a street art wall, to give creatives an outlet.
The Town Council hope that this will be a fantastic ever-changing community art project for young people in Leigh and will also help to boost tourism.
Imagining a New Future
I was thrilled to be asked by focalpoint gallery Southend to take part in this project.
Reflecting on our experiences throughout the 1st Lockdown in 2020. Myself & 2 other local creatives created a resource pack for teachers & individuals to use to explore our shared experiences.
My contribution was something I like to call the "protest preparedness pack. A little exercise in preparing to be a protester if the future needs you too be.
Imagining a New Future
link to resource pack here:
Black history month event.
'Celebrating black lives'.
I was thrilled to be asked by Onesouthend/the Southend youth council if I could take part in their black history month event.
'Celebrating black lives'.
For my part I made some street art! Of course!
Focusing on someone who I think has captured the current atmosphere here in the u.k. Marcus Rashford.
Footballer and powerful social justice activist. Someone whos enormous wealth hasn't removed his ability to empathize with issues like child food poverty, and actively push for change. Big up mr Rashford. ❤👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Tuesdays 1000mph live performance in the high street Southend was an opportunity to point out what this great man has already achieved and how his plans to negotiate free school meals for children was rejected this week by our current government. 🤔
It was also a chance for me to again remind the gate keepers that I have plans to lead a team in a coordinated approach to street art throughout the town. I believe this form of art has the potential to benefit the town greatly. And I've been painting teaching and campaigning for wider acceptance of public art murals for years.
Stay tuned as I may need 'your support' to realise this in the near future.
We made a film of the mural painting process which will be available to watch from tomorrow through the onesouthend website. Look out for the link 😄

I've been painting this new tiger dragon. For the live stream new urban era festival. First time in years I didnt make it to the jam in person.
Props to Vic Brown the man does a lot for art and artists in his community.
Shout to all the writers I've met at this jam. Be good to see you all again.
Its rubbish, not having festivals and gigs to go too isnt it! 😒 If you can, support your self employed friends at this time please. Artists and small businesses like mine Brave_Arts need as much work as ever. Good luck out there guys, it could be worse you could bump into this angry looking beast🤣
Piece dedicated to Dez. RIP.

I am privileged and I will never take my freedom or my health for granted. Big shout out to everyone I've worked with this year. Let's make 2020 even better. Best wishes to all of ya ♥️ Brave_Arts

Hottest bank holiday weekend in London ever!!!!!
Carnival weekend! The vibe is nice, got the Saturday and Sunday pass, so I went painting with a load of top people.
Cos it was 20 years since the spot was first painted. We gave the wall an anniversary jam.
Thanks to all that attended, you know who you are. Respect due to all of you, the place looked amazing!
here is the result of a recent youth work session back at the Rayleigh Skate park, around 15 young people wondered up & helped during the graffiti workshop
I've been painting with @cryola1
Someone who I knew and respected for her graffiti, way before we actually met.
It's been almost 20 years. This week she took centre stage. Proving once again that CRY is still one of the best british female graffiti artists, to ever do it.
I was on background duty 😁
it was great catching up with old friends & meeting so many people whilst painting the High st.
Sunny southend, like many British towns and cities, has got its social issues, deprivation and poverty. Caused mainly by the fall out from cruel austerity policies. But the pair of us got nothing but love and admiration from the comfortable people, to the destitute ones. Everyone we met was sound, the sun shone and paint sprayed 🙂
Thanks to natalie at southend festival, and johnbulley for sorting the wall.

Justice for Grenfell.
Peace to all the heads that turned up to support the Grenfell graffiti jam.
No justice no peace.
Sadly the fight against the madness of the system continues. So many amazing people in attendance yesterday all we all want is justice for the survivors and the legislation needed to prevent this happening again.
Why is it a fight!?
Thanks to @weardoe on the help out, & yo @nemigardner, Respect. Thanks for helping me paint this tiger.
@sheshegabor thank you. Well done mate ❤
