{     Secret Wars     }    

http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/09/SecretWarsBlack-thumb.jpgSecret Wars = Fight Club without the fists. And organized following the rules of the football (for some known as "soccer") association, in London, England (where else?). Secret Wars is an underground tournament where the onyl weapon allowed is black paint: brought to you by Monorex (remember this UK art&design collective and their wicked one-of-a-kind customization of as wicked Hulger cell phone attachments? If not go back and read!), it was born as a "friendly battle" between Monorex and Jon Burgerman's Black Convoy and it has now developed into a structured, dangerous art fight. This is the deal: an underground network relying on word of mouth, two battles each night organized into a pyramidal tournament, only black paint and pens as weapons of mass distraction, one white wall to be filled in one and a half hours in a bar in Shoreditch (London E1), one final winner. Figthing until the last pencil has broken to win the final price made of 500 BP cash and a heavy bag filled with electronic goodies and other gadgets. Since this does not happens in a dark garage where knifes and fists can fly unseen, but in a bar, expect to meet a crowd of art lovers and street artists ready to cheer for their favourite contestant. And possibly sizing up the competition, since Secret Wars, currently in its first edition (the 16 competitors have been hand picked by the organizers), is accepting applications for an upcoming series 2: if you think you can challenge these artists, drop them a line! If not,drop in Juno Bar in one the Secret Wars nights and watch them work: fun is guaranteed and you may learn their tricks!
