First Coat 2014

A few weeks back, 40/40 Creative was invited to help film the official video for Toowoomba's first street art festival, First Coat. 

The 3 day festival consisted of 15+ large scale murals being painted throughout the weekend from 27+ amazing artists both national and international including EWOKMR WANY, SOFLESTREASQUENCHFINTAN MAGEESHIDAREALSMEKSTUESYESMAWUBIKTHE GRID, JOHN KAYE and plenty more. The event was a major success for Toowoomba's Regional Council, GraffitiStop, Kontraband Studios and Toowoomba Youth Service. 

We stayed quite busy filming and socialising at all different wall locations across the CBD and in between those, the opening launch party, the StupidKrap exhibition and also the Analouge Digital Artist talks. All in all, it was a jam packed, fun and creative weekend. Special shout-out to the girls over at theGRID for the hospitality and accomodation! After trekking the city, partying with new and old friends, the community seemed to be enjoying every aspect of all the amazing art work and events popping up over the city. We are currently in the works editing the First Coat video which is where you'll see most of the action but for now we'll leave you with some of our favourite images that sums up the weekend that was. For more info about First Coat and the artists, please visit:
