Breakin’ The Bay is a free annual Hip Hop festival held at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.
It’s billed as a celebration of Hip Hop culture covering the elements of DJ and MCing along with graffiti and street art too.
Organised by local writer Rmer – who invited the artists from across the capital city and more from Birmingham, London and Ireland too!
A post on Saturday’s proceedings are on the link below with Sunday’s offering in the rest of this post.
Early on Sunday morning all the previous day’s work was blacked over with paint to provide new canvasses ready for Sunday’s session.
All the previous hard work from Rmer and all the invited artists was obliterated in just a matter of minutes!
Another day and another vintage car festival was also taking place alongside the Wales Millennium Centre with a whole range of vintage and not so vintage cars from as late as the 1980s. (Yes we must be getting older when an 80s Escort is now considered vintage!)
Positions of each artist had slightly changed with Karm One and Philth now under the overhang of the WMC – which could be deemed a good move due to the grey clouds that were gathering during the day.
Large crowds gathered during the day to watch the artists hard at work and also to support the young talent taking part in the b-boy dancing to the riddims being played.
Tizer painted this woman with purple hair whilst Newso painted solo in his traditional abstract style.
Rmer previously painted the Breakin the Bay logo whereas today he carefully crafted this colourful skull. #mindblowing
You can see the progress with the amount of teeth the skeleton has.
During the week running upto the main event local children were invited inside the Wales Millennium Centre to take part in some activities including creating this mosaic for the festival.
