cases, raids, long prison sentences, curfews & fines are just a few of the things that most writers at one time or another encounter in their careers. graffiti is shunned, forced to be looked upon as the product of an unintelligent, disorganised mind. it is these preconceptions that define the word wrong. in the most surveyed city in the world through closed-circuit television with literally no time at all to get things done, London is still a city to be reckoned with. showcasing the movements and talents of writers that risk their freedom and life daily.
Graffiti is something more than your ordinary bomb that you see on the street, or a throw-up on your neighbors rooftop, it’s much more than a piece with 50 different shades of grey. To this day there is yet no simple definition of illegal graffiti to the public eye, unless it is understood by whom understands the concept meaning for what took place previously for it to be existent. The visualist who sees beyond the colours, beyond the time spent, beyond the ripped jackets and splashes of paint on the writers hands and sleeves are those who really understand the true meaning.
