Another week and another fat, ugly, bright orange EasyJet flight. Why do they fly everywhere and why do I always end up on them. If only Virgin Atlantic flew everywhere, I would be so much happier. So we were picked up from the airport by Nicholas from Inoperable Gallery who had very kindly invited us out"to make zee street art in ze vanderful sity of Vienna". Inoperable had found us a wall on the side of an old movie theatre. The owners were totally cool and basically let us paint whatever we wanted, however the wall wasn't quite as accommodating. After much thought I decided on the phrase 'Colour Fool', describing how positive I feel about my life right now. Being with 2 Americans we discovered that if you say 'Colourful' repeatedly, over and over again in your most L.A gangsta lingo you can actually entertain yourself for days. Try this yourselves, its really, really good fun. If anyone has other phrases, in other accents that sound equally as funny please let us know and we'll put them up on a wall (this could be the start of something big. or not).
Just as we were leaving London we saw this new piece of street art down on Hackney Road, being pretty good and looking different to anything else out there at the moment, it caught our eye. And so it follows that who do we bump into in Vienna but the Israeli kids responsible for the Hackney Road painting, Broken Fingaz (of which none seemed to have, but we didn't like to ask in case it involved some crazy Mossad secret intelligence punishment). Go check them out http://brokenfingaz.com/
Thanks to Nicholas and Nathalie from Inoperable for having us http://www.inoperable.at/
