“Old school graffiti has certainly evolved over the decades. Some of the original aspects – hip hop, style, fashion, culture – have eroded, but at the heart is still a way of life. The days of painting whole trains and watching them roll around the city are lost, in New York and London at least. Those unique canvases, however illegal, inspire generations of writers and artists to develop a creative style, and engage in an expressive creative art form” – Joe Epstein, LDN Graffiti
