downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...
Saturday, 7th October 2017
The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.
We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Team Rex, massive graffiti exhibition heads to London
Mark McKenzie has dropped us a line about an exhibition offering the largest ever graffiti, street art exhibit in London.
Team Robbo represents a new order in the art world; a renowned graffiti crew was formed in 2010 by its founder and inspiration King Robbo – champion of the true Outsider art movement, antidote to the Banksy mythology and a rising star in the art market.
In the Summer of 2012, Team Robbo will take art lovers on a visual journey, exploring how the creative ‘DNA’ of street/train graffiti, spawned in New York City – developed, spread and mutated around the world, creating a kaleidoscope of art and culture.
Team Robbo’s new work will synchronize with the energy of an extraordinary collection of works by over a hundred invited international graffiti writers and artists from around the globe, including the full Team Robbo artist team - Choci-Roc, Doze, Fuel, PIC, Prime, alongside Pranksky.
If you would like to attend the exhibition Private View on 30th August, commencing at the Red Gallery, London at 6pm, please let the team know via the form on to their Private View page.
You will also be able to join the after party at East Village, nearby, which commences at 9.00pm on the 30th.
- The public exhibition opens every day from 31st August until 9th September. Opening hours Mon - Sat 10.00am - 7.00pm; Thursday 10.00am - 8.00pm; Sunday 11.00am - 5.00pm. Entry is free. Web: www.teamrex.org/about
