Eurocultured 2006

It has been suggested that they call "Eurocultured" as they do because there's more funding available for a festival of European cultural *stuff* than there might be for a free party with music and graffiti. I couldn't possibly comment on this.

Anyway, the street-artist roll-call included Rookie, San, Klit (photo 2 below), Ruse76 (who has decorated the cornerhouse window in the past, Matt Sewell who did the mural on the wall of Common, Dreph, Guy McKinley, and ooh loads more.

This year's festival was pretty rained out, especially on the Sunday, and the street artists were stop-starting with the showers. Browse all the photos on Flickr, there's some superb ones.

Here's my top 4. As ever, if you know who the artists are, let me know! Particularly the top one, which seems very familiar. Big love! It's God, looking at himself in a green-tinted mirror, in the bath, surely?

Its called Eurocultured because it was initially invented and funded by EasyJet to announce the introduction of its new cheap flight services to many major European destinations from Manchester airport.

It was such a success that the organisers 'Spearfish' decide to keep on doing it and find funding for it elsewhere eg the Council & Arts funds.
