Another Graffiti Art Event Coming To Everett This Week

Last month Graffiti Artists from around the country came to Everett, Washington to participate in Going All City Northwest where 150 artists created dozens of murals around Everett, Washington over the course of four days.

One of the outcomes from that weekend of artwork is that a major mural known as “The Lost Samurai” was rejected by the building owner and “buffed” or erased by the crew from Arizona that created it per their agreement for the project.

This was a big blow for Hype Murals, local graffiti artist Hyper, the Graffaholeks Northwest crew and the community of artists, creatives and makers who worked for a year on the original event. They went to work to find another location and bring the crew back to paint another mural.

Here’s the mural at Scuttlebutt’s outdoor dining area.

Scuttlebutt and the City of Everett worked together to make this wall available to the crew of artists from Arizona.

Up stepped the folks at Scuttlebutt Brewing. They had already commissioned a mural for a wall at the outdoor dining area of their building but now they offered a huge wall at the north side of the brewery for Spawk, Faust and their entire crew from Arizona to come back up and create a new mural. Patrick Kolb is the Taproom Manager at Scuttlebutt.

“I’m excited, its artistry and the world needs to see it,” Kolb said last week. “This is a great way to show Graffiti Art as something more than a nuisance.”

Going All City Northwest Part 2 is set for Thursday September 22nd – Sunday September 25th at Scuttlebutt Brewery and Tap Room at 3314 Cedar in Everett.

In order to cover the cost to bring the crew of artists back from Arizona and pay for the paint and materials, limited edition prints of the original “The Lost Samurai” mural were created and printed by Alexander Printing in Everett. The artists have signed these prints which are on sale through Hype Murals on their Instagram page.

There are limited seats left. Click to register.

There’s also going to be a Pin Striping Class with Spawk on Thursday evening. In this class they will be teaching the basic strokes of Curly Q. Style with a splash of history on the artform. They will also supply all materials to use in class and have starter kits available for purchase. At this writing there were seven online spots available per class. A total of 15 students will be attending. – The location for this event is 3314 Cedar Street, Everett WA. Click here to sign up online and claim your spot.
