Wall Project
Artist Remi/Rough launched the Wall Project in January 2011. The celebrated urban artist was specially commissioned to design and paint an interior wall that runs the entire length of the Rich Mix events space. Tonight’s event sees the unveiling of the second design, which has been selected by a panel of experts, including Remi/Rough.

On the 1st August 2008 Remi/Rough held court at London's Tate Modern. As part of the Tate's Street Art exhibition and series, he was invited to talk on the underground history of UK graffiti in front of a sell-out auditorium. His deep rooted personal gallery relationships date back to the murky days of 1989 when he unveiled his debut art show and has since gone on to see his work exhibited All City, All Global. London to Paris, Perth, Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Berlin, Hamburg, Strasbourg, Edinburgh and Ibiza. And he ain't done yet.

Shane Solanki
Shane Solanki is sometimes a spoken word artist, comedian, lyricist, producer, journalist, curator and director of film and theatre - plus he loves working with kids and adults to build sustainable communities. Both a cowboy and an Indian, his work often explores relative cultural values and belief systems - perhaps that's why he's got a swastika tattooed on his back. Often performing under the pseudonym Last Mango in Paris, Shane is resident artist at Rich Mix. He's recently returned from a British Council supported three month sabbatical to India, collaborating with Asian Dub Foundation, Talvin Singh, Bandish Projekt, Arun Ghosh, Jeet Thayil and Monica Dogra.
