This is the last entry to the I-Chirves. I take this opportunity to close our old activities with the introduction of the new Ifreecans Collective Logo, Kid Khai. For more information on his History, as well as the live art auction and future news and project, please visit the new blog via the link below. thanks for the love and the support and hope you will keep posted on our activities.
From our inception in 2008, our wordpress blog has been used to catalogue our activities, growth, losses and adventures to present day. Change is good, and at present, it is becoming clear we have done all we could do with our blog using the wordpress format.
In 2012 ,we have an abundance of new. New logo, new projects, new ideas, new members [some of the old have gone their own way] and we are moving to a new blog format and a new blog address. We are also updating the BigCartel shop format and will add new products once they are ready. My hope is that this change will be evident, helping us attract a new fan base, while retaining the loyalty of the old. We have listened to what our customers/fans/followers asked for in regards to products, mailing lists and post and will strive to bring you not only what you asked for, but what we feel you deserve from us as creatives, and what we feel needs to be out there.
This blog will now be referred to fondly as our “I-CHIVES” in the hope that when one stumbles upon it, it can give them a History of the Ifreecans Collective. We found an interesting way or archiving everything we have done and hope the format is suitable. This is the second to last post that appear here, an announcement of our departure from WordPress. The last post will be an announcement of where to find us in our new stomping ground. I hope you will pay us a visit, it is coming soon.
Founder, Ifreecans Collective.
Aruta Soup is off to Japan. He will be much missed, but we will keep you updated on is work and keep the bigcartel shop as well as Brick Lane stall stocked with his work. See more on his final London mural via links below and we hope to bring him back to London for future projects.
Arutasoup recently did a mural in support of The Japan Society Earthquake relief fund. See more on the project and his work via the links below
Kiboko84 recently took part in a 10 day residency in Marrakech. The image above features a collaborative mural between him and other residency artists. More information and pics on other projects completed while at the residency via the links below.
There is nothing else to say other than the mural is done and thanks to all the artists who participated. We will keep pumping out pictures because they are too many taken by plenty of people but me thinks still worth showing. Check link for the final-ish pics showing how the work links to each other. Better yet…come down to Camden Stables Market and see it live
Much has been happening and apologies for lateness in updates and pics. The mural is almost done and it has been more of an experience than hoped for. We got to take part in the making of a documentary courtesy of Nils from Berlin, got to collabo with new and amazing artist from the UK and outside. Much love and respect to those who hit the wall and run Romeou, BoogieRez from NYC and to new guest artists who took part Valdi,Liam, Naquala, Alex, Ron&Peace and a special shout out to Bubblin Sunn who flew in from Germany to take part in the last week of the project. For those who have been active from day one, much love to Eunie, Wumz, GTS, 5foot, Pensee+ and anyone who passed by to show love and lend a hand and take photos. The project started out with 8 artist but thus far close to 15 international artists have taken part. Have a look at the pics below and check flickr for more images. Final images and links to participants websites to follow soon.
