See you this weekend!

OUR MASTERPIECE

We recently worked with a local artist called The Mystical Seer to create the new artwork to near complete The Grounds takeover of the warehouse space. Watch the piece here, with such skill and attention to detail, it came to life over 6 hours with Kevin B making his artwork debut. Check out more of his work at his facebook page here.
