Onek at Black Rainbows

25 Jun

Black Rainbows Flyer at the Carhartt store Manchester.  Click for interview with Onek N M

Last night the Carhartt store on Oldham Street welcomed in the cream of Manchester’s graffiti crowd to the opening of the Black Rainbows exhibition curated by KREK.

On the night I got the chance to talk with veteran Graffiti artist ONEK NM about his part in the show and the changing state of the graf scene. You can listen here.

Bringing together seven established UK artists who work in and around the graf scene the store was completely emptied of all Carhartt stock for the launch. With such a strong turn out for the event it’s fairly fair to assume this is because of concerns for security as much as respect for the work, even so the exhibition is well worth a visit over the next 3 months if you’re perusing the boutiques of the Northern Quarter.

The show continues in-store until mid September.

      Hi Krek,
      Wanted to catch you but had to run to another appointment at the Whitworth. Would be good to catch up some time – nice work getting things happening in Manchester.
