Microbo (Italy), Joska (Germany), Jeremy Fish (USA), Wayne Horse (Netherlands), Bo 130 (Italy), The London Police (UK), Galo (Italy) and Will Barras (UK) – all part of the Big Geezers family.
In the last years Carhartt has supported and worked closely with many artists and therefore it seems naturally to pay tribute to the Big Geezers and initiate this one time road trip. After the Tour D’Amour last summer through South Europe, Carhartt now discovers the North and the East:
Copenhagen, Oslo, Warsaw, Budapest, Vienna, and Bratislava – 6 Stops and 5500km in 3 weeks.
The term “Big Geezers” stands for a group of artists doing something together. Originally the idea comes from Chaz, the man behind the London Police. He is the one uniting all the Big Geezers to one force – in this case a paint trip.
The Big Geezers Family is huge, and not everyone has time to go on tour, but a good representation of members will go on tour and join their talents to create some remarkable works.
This unique road trip will start on the 11th of August 2007 in Cologne/Germany and then head towards Copenhagen/Denmark where the Geezers will paint the Carhartt Shop and the Indoor Skatepark, then they head for Oslo/Norway to run riot on the walls of the Stress store and the walls at the Brennerieveien. Afterwards the Big Geezers family heads East towards Warsaw/Poland to paint at the Frontline store and another secret spot that will not be revealed yet…
From there it goes to Budapest/Hungary to the newly opened Carhartt Shop and Tuzoltu Vida, to Vienna/Austria to the Rag store and Wiener-wall (Wienerwand); and finally they head to Bratislava/Slovakia to paint the Tukame Store and under the Lafranconi Bridge.
All along the road the Big Geezers will spread their message of friendship and respect. At each stop they paint it will be a great get together.
The Big Geezers Tour is coming to you and you should not miss out to join them.
