September 2016 marked the 30 year anniversary of people painting graffiti art at West London’s most loved hall of fame, Trellick Towers. Chrome & Black thought it was only right to hold a paint jam in celebration of this!
This mural was performed live and shot on time-lapse mode by HEK and JUNKY from the North Paris Graffiti crew TJS (The Junkie Spray) as a tribute in the loving memory of their friend the late DJ Mehdi (1977-2011).
Directed by: PIERRE “PIRATE” QUIQUERÉ
Music by: DJ JUNKAZ LOU.

They may have had to travel upstate, but the Burning Of Kingston II was like coming home for a lot of these guys. The event brought some of the top writers from New York City to battle it out with burners on a scrapped subway car. Many of them were around for the era when it was common to paint New York trains, so like Bio says in the video, “It’s nostalgic.”
On one side was the defending champs Ces, Bio, Doves, and Ribs, and they kept their title this year with the assigned Donald Trump-themed production. On the other side was the close runner ups Nover, Vers, Yes 1, and Nicer, who went in on their Deflategate theme.
To celebrate its two year anniversary, for the first time ever, Theo Cane Garvey’s documentary filmmaking debut ‘Sheffield Graffiti Kingdom’ is now available for viewing here via youtube.
This was a project that took him around two years to put together, all filmed and edited by Theo and scored by his long time collaborator Cal Williams.
Theo explains “Graffiti Art is a scene that I have followed for many years and although I have never been a participant in the art form myself, its one I hold very close to my heart and can hopefully say with this documentary I have cemented my own little piece of Sheffield graffiti history.”
The views and opinions expressed in this documentary are that of the individuals interviewed only and do not reflect the views and opinions of the filmmakers.
All footage featuring graffiti writers trespassing on private property was filmed by the writers themselves and given to the filmmakers afterwards.
This film is for information and common interest purposes only.
The filmmakers involved do not condone or encourage stealing, drug use, defacing, destroying or vandalizing public or private property.
Graffiti is an illegal criminal activity and those who do it, do so at their own risks.
8 writers had 20 minutes, 3 colours and a random word given to them right before the timer started. They had just 20 mins to paint to come up with the best dub they could, in the rain and wind! Only 4 writers went through to the semi finals which is this weekend. Keep your eyes peeled for part 2!
Artists featured CREPT, CHIK, OUST, NEBOE, GORO, KAES, INKFETISH, ROBES
Footage from Chrome & Blacks Leake Street takeover back in August – the Summers biggest graff jam!

But fret no longer, this Saturday 18th April it’s Record Store Day 2015 – and that means that as long as you drag your lazy-ass out of bed before it’s too late, you can cop one of these little beauties to add to your wax collection…
This double-sided 7″ Picture-Disc contains both vocal and instrumental versions of the tune, with full artwork on both sides and presented in a stickered clear-plastic wallet – and is strictly available ONLY IN STORES!!
