On Tuesday night we went down to the first screening of Toasters film ’Everywhere’. Getting there an hour early and queuing meant a long wait, but this was worth it to receive our free toaster popcorn box.
We have always been a fan of Toasters, (especially Alex!) the simpleness and quirk that toaster has taken over the world over for the last 13 years has made us smile and follow their antics, always keeping an eye out where we might spot our next Toaster.
The film showed the Toasters (Toaster A, B and D) journey over the last decade featuring a variety of famous artists such as D*face giving thier thoughts and opinions on the toaster movement. Highlights being toasters at the Tour de France and World Cup… those toasters are everywhere!
We wont give to much away.. get down to one of the other viewings if you can, if not we’re sure it’ll be up online in the next few months. Check out the video preview of the show to wet your appetite.

We are quite new to the work of Tilt at UAM but have really grown to like his work.. Recently featuring in POWs xmas show and also annihilating the outside of Village Underground (video above) Tilt has been tearing up the streets for years. We are loving his bold lettering and vibrant colour work.. Nostalgic sexy pop, meets dirty street.. loving it!
A little about the artist… Tilt is an internationally recognised traditional graffiti artist, originating from Toulouse in South France. A self declared “graffiti fetishist”, he learned his trade in the streets and on trains as a youngster. In the time since he did his first tags on a skateboard ramp back in ’88, his ensuing career has been nourished and influenced by extensive travel. Inspirational journeys have seen Tilt exhibit and leave his mark as far and wide as the U.S.A, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Laos, Taiwan, China, Canada, Philippines, Indonnesia, Maldivians and in excess of 12 countries throughout Europe.

Village Underground are trying to gain funding to turn the exterior wall of their premises into a public art space. They have rejected big offers from advertising companies who want to sell their nonsense and have decided to put awesome artwork up instead. Good for them! We think this is a great idea, so have a look at the kickstarter video to get involved if you so choose! They are offering some great rewards if you do.
