Recap: Art In My Mouth – Norwich, UK
We headed 115 miles north of London to the East Anglian city of Norwich. Not known for it’s street art prowess (despite being the city were UK graffiti heavyweight, Shok-1 evolved in the early 90’s) a new collective, MooseyArt hosted their first group show, Art In My Mouth, curated by Frazer Bailey, a guy with an obvious passion for street art. The white washed walls of Stew Gallery featured a collection of canvases, framed prints, painted decks and more that wouldn’t of looked out of place in East London. Managing to grab a few words with Frazer, he was overjoyed by the success of the groups first show and expressed his desire to make Norwich the Bristol of the East with murals that would put Norwich on street art map. Featuring a line-up of artists including super duo, The London Police, Mr Penfold (who’s recent show at Unit 44 introduced abstract art within his works), Miss Wah, RX-Skulls, Millo, amidst exceptional local talent set the precedent moving forward. The main room also hosted a live Posca battle where locals faced off against guests to create a one off mural.
Whilst in town for the exhibition, The London Police and Mr Penfold collaborated on a mural within the bar of fashionable local spot, The Birdcage, which seemed as good a place as any to chill and take in the exceptional line work from these guys.
