Do you think you’ve got what it takes to be the latest star in street art? Today Umbro are launching a special collaboration with Foot Locker and Secret Walls, to unearth some of the finest fresh talent across Europe.
To celebrate a new range of
Umbro clothing that’s soon to be available in Foot Locker stores, we asked four
top artists to create the stunning poster that you can see in the video above,
which now towers over Old Street in London. Artists RIFF, ALPHA, Conzo and
McBess created the image earlier this week in a 48 hr burst of creativity, and
they’re going to help us in our search for the best new street artists across
Now they’ve shown us their skills, it’s time for you to get involved. As Lethal Bizzle explains in the video, we want you to upload a piece of work to our special Facebook app inspired by who you are, where you’re from, your football culture or Umbro’s history and heritage. Using these ideas as inspiration, we want you to create a black and white image and then upload it here.
The four finest artists who enter the contest will receiving special mentoring from RIFF, ALPHA, Conzo or McBess before taking part in a special live art battle in London later this month hosted by none other than Lethal Bizzle. The two winners of this event will then go head to head in a final competition to find out who is the most talented street artist around.
There’s also a very special prize for the artist who comes out on top – your artwork will be used in Umbro and Foot Locker’s adverts, seen all over Europe and on our massive space in London’s Old Street. There’s only one word to describe such a prize – DENCH.
So how can you get involved? Just head over to our Facebook page now to upload your artwork. You’ve got until October 17th to enter.
