MADE BIRMINGHAM 2015
With only a matter of weeks to go until the 2 day event taking place in the Digbeth Triangle 25-26th July, 2014 Best Metropolitan Festival nominee, MADE Birmingham reveals its very own 400m graffiti wall, lovingly crafted by art collective, Fortyeights as well as details of the multifaceted night time event, MADE…My Night.
“Such an organic vibe to it, I sometimes wish that more promoters from the US would come here to experience what a great time it is” Headliner, MK
Fortyeights is an arts production and independent commercial creative company. It was started by two Birmingham born and bred graffiti artists, Gent and Newso. Its focus is on commercial commissions of their collaborative mural work.
Gent and Newso have collaborated on murals for over a decade. They have painted together and been involved in urban art for more than 18 years.
They continue to stay close to their roots with their graffiti work. Recognised nationally and internationally, the duo have spent the last seven years making Digbeth more inspiring.
“We’ve been looking forward to this commission, it’s a good feeling to have such an open brief and have the chance to create art that’s representative of our strong visual identity. We’re both passionate about our home city and hope that this wall cheers and inspires others. The mural that we are painting over this week, we painted last year and based it on our cities motto, ‘Forward’. A big thanks to Custard Factory and Rainbow Venues for allowing us the wall and giving us continued support” Newso
“What we hope to represent through the design is the vibrancy of MADE and of our area of Birmingham, Digbeth. Over the years we have been working hard to transform this area with our artwork and open up new walls to paint. We’ve tried to help make Digbeth similar to those places we found on painting travels across Europe. We get invited to other cities to paint these sorts of walls so its good to have more opportunities to have our work brought back to our own city” Gent48
MADE are also announcing details of their official night time event, MADE…My Night, which will take place from 11:30pm to 6am on Saturday 25th July after the festival at a host of venues across the city.
