Annual LIVE Graffiti BATTLE: Gums & Tounge VS Illustrated 2017


ILLUSTRATED 2017 brings together a group of the brightest visionaries in contemporary illustration and street art.  Between 9th – 11th June enjoy one of the UK’s most exciting exhibition environments set against the backdrop of The Old Truman Brewery, Shoreditch – East London’s revolutionary arts and media quarter.

What makes us different?  We’re not an art fair!  We deliver industry events with quality content; a well curated programme of seminars, workshops, live art & music all within an informative, engaging and vibrant arena.  It really is set to be an exciting three days.

Building on the success of last year’s curated schedule of seminars, we continue to source a variety of experienced facilitators and speakers to deliver engaging workshops and talks.

This year we’ll continue our effort to deliver our exciting programme and hopefully introduce a few left-field additions set to push the envelope!  Our event schedule is updated regularly so keep checking back, alternatively like us on FB to stay updated.

We’re always open to suggestions – if you’d like to deliver a workshop and/or seminar at ILLUSTRATED 2017 feel free to reach out: events@illustrated.co.uk

The IWS comprises three annual tournaments:

  • – UK Illustration Championships
  • – World Illustration Championships
  • – Illustrated Masters

This year ILLUSTRATED 2017 hosts the UK Illustration Championship finals with the quarters and semis played out over Friday 9th & Saturday 10th and the grand final scheduled for Sunday 11th June – don’t miss it!  For more info and if you’d like to compete – click below!


A riveting live drawing battle experince and our annual ‘blue riband’ in-event feature.  Secret Walls return this year bringing their graffiti big-guns to take on the best of ILLUSTRATED 2017’s exhibiting artists.  Last year Secret Walls won the battle by a slim margin, who’ll clinch the winners medals this year though?  Get along on Saturday night and find out!

About Secret Walls:  The cool simplicity of a monochrome palette mixed with the invigorating effects of time constraint has proven to be a winning concept for Secret Walls.  Aspiring artists of all styles and backgrounds contend on the global platform.  They’re armed solely with black markers or acrylic paint, with the challenge of filling a large canvas.


Since 2010 we’ve worked with hundreds of musicians and bands.  Some of the biggest names we’ve had to-date include Ithaca Audio, FEMME, Cate Ferris and Passion Bel Canon.

With this year’s bigger more professional AV setup we’re set to attract interest from some of the most exciting new-comers on London’s live music scene.  What better way to spend the day than listening to some of the newest sounds in the UK while surrounded by top quality visual art and fun things to do!
