Dibujar Mata Violente from Bom.K, Dran and Sowat


So after posting about Da Mental Vaporz’ kickass recent wall in London, I found out that part of the crew makes up the three-man show Dibujar Mata Violente at Ras Gallery in Barcelona. Bom.K, Dran and Sowat make up nearly half of DMV and (at least to my knowledge) are the more active members of the crew when it comes to painting indoors (but my knowledge of that is pretty limited to what has been shown in the UK, so feel free to correct me) Update: Thanks to people who know more about DMV than me, I’ve been informed that there are 9 artists in the crew and that they all have both outdoor an indoor practices, so I was right to worry that I might be misinforming people. Sorry for any confusion. This is definitely something to check out.

Da Mental Vaporz at London’s Meeting of Styles

Meeting of Styles London (organized once again by End of The Line and Probs) 2010 just took place. While there were plenty of amazing walls painted, the most impressive is definitely this one by Da Mental Vaporz (Bom.k, Jaw, Sowat, Brusk, Blo, Dran and Kan). Not much to say here besides “Damn that’s good!”

New DRAN & BRUSK Mural In London

Following their live performance at the second Lawnfest Charity event hosted by Camilla Al Fayed and sponsored by Gallery Nosco, French artists Dran and Brusk from the DMV crew left their mark in East London.

Dran and Brusk actively painted a fresh mural day and night over the week end in Great Eastern Street. The collaboration depicts a dragon monster representing a CEO (still wearing his tie on) eating an employee, while Dran’s signature children characters are happily riding and laughing on his back.

Naomi Doran, Dran and Alexandros Vasmoulakis

The work that Dran had at Pure Evil Gallery earlier this year were exciting, so I’m glad to see him back in London. And while I usually don’t like Alexandros Vasmoulakis’s work, it should be nice to see him come to London and maybe he will surprise me.
