We headed down to Newcastle to catch up with some old friends and check out what the guys at Unit 44 have been up to.
Situated in the Hoults Yard Estate, the owners are looking to push a more creative angle for the spaces and Unit 44 have helped out by building an impressive collection of large scale murals from some of the best artists around today. The White Walls project has already worked with Roa, Kid Acne, She One, John Burgerman and most recently Insa (keep an eye on his blog for something epic coming soon).
The guys have plans for another 10 plus murals so when finished it will become a unique "gallery".
While there we also caught the launch night of an installation and collaborative print from Sickboy and Paul Insect, at onethirty3 which you can check out here.
With the perception that nothing happens north of London this is a really exciting project and definitely worth a visit.
Cheers to all the Folks we met in the toon, check out Unit 44 online here.
