7th April 2013
Ghostdavandal originals were up and about at The Freshly Made Festival in Brick Lane with Marvin Hagglar, promoting the latest release from the up and coming album, "This Is Freedom"( available on Soundcloud).
The event was packed with exhibition events such as live graffiti from some of the best aerosol artists in London, music and live performances plus urban and street wear stalls exhibiting and marketing their products. Being at Brick Lane, on a Sunday, the Truman Brewery was typically jam packed and heaving with activity by the afternoon, although it had a slow start.
We managed to mingle within the stalls and stall holders that were exhibiting and selling their products to get a feel of the event, and most exhibitors sounded uplifted about being out and about selling their products or liaising and networking with other exhibitors.
We met Natcho, an illustrator and photographer who was exhibiting at the market and she was excited about being at Freshly Made and getting a response to her product. Her illustrations are definitely striking and we loved her enthusiasm! Amongst the exhibitors, we ran into 4649 Worldwide who seemed to be having a wicked time at the market and loved the products on display, some of the exhibitors included Funk Rush, Peace and Cookies and Big Deal Clothing. We also got chatting to GUSTO Urban Clothing and they explained their involvement in music and fashion, not forgetting Seymore Greene Apparel (loving the Snapbacks range) and the boys from Dictate Clothing.
We also met the legendary Aztec, who we interviewed about graffiti lifestyle, Tom Ryall and a load of artists that were doing their thing outside or jus mingling within the crowd! The music stall, pumpin out fresh organic beats courtesy of DJ Shep and DJ Ivan of Holdin'Court, held memorable performances from Oliver Sudden, Cracker Jon and Marvin Hagglar in front of a humbling crowd that seemed to respond to the emcees performances.
Special Thanks go to David Tainsh @Krome Ink Cloting, Luke @Holdin' Court, Aman Mahoon @Ghostdavandal Originals and to Dave @Massive Arms for the tshirt swap( for my Busta Tshirt)!
C U @ the next Freshly Made Market!
