The RoxeJam was originally set up in 2007 by Lou Lockwood as a memorial to her son Bill(aka Roxer), who had died in a road accident.
Prior to the event all the previous artwork was painted over with black paint ready for this year’s creations. Previous blog post about the blacked out wall at http://djleekee.wordpress.com/2011/07/25/grafitti-preparations-for-roxejam-2011/
It’s a 2 day free event held at SevernOaks Park in Grangetown, Cardiff bringing together all elements of hip hop and graffiti culture. The main attraction is most definately the huge 140m graffiti wall which is re-decorated yearly as a collaboration between graffiti artists from the local area and from across the whole of the UK.
The 2010 wall can be viewed at http://djleekee.wordpress.com/2010/08/24/photos-roxejam-graffiti-event-in-cardiff/
