Boxpark is the worlds first pop-up mall. Located in East London’s very trendy Shoreditch (5 minutes up the road from our studio!) and fashioned from shipping containers it houses some great shops (some more permanent than others) a mix of fashion and lifestyle brands, galleries, cafes and restaurants – it has even featured on The Apprentice!
It also hosts a number of successful and busy events including Bomb The Box, a 6 week long event in which a number of graffiti artists and groups will decorate a 20-foot long blank shipping container live in front of Boxpark.
It began on 4th August with one of the exhibit’s curators Aroe and Gary from UK’s MSK crew. The video below takes a look at how the first week went with comments from Aroe & Gary about the event, where they started and the state of UK graffiti today.
