Behind the scenes: Secret Wars

It's no exaggeration to say that Secret Wars has the makings of a bona-fide phenomenon. What started out as a friendly graffiti battle between two design collectives has now grown to encompass club nights the length and breadth of the UK, and plans are underway for a pan-European tour.

Each contestant is given a limited amount of white space, 90 minutes and an arsenal of marker pens and paints to get doodling with. The winner is decided by guest judges and an all-important clap-o-meter, which registers the 400- strong crowd's decisive vote.
