AboutLondon photographers Delete, Leeone102, Buddz909, NoLionsInEngland, HowAboutNo and Joeppo are hardcore devotees of the capitalâ street art and graffiti scene. Buddies for a long time, for the first time they show together some of the finest photographs of Londonâ internationally famous graffiti and street art. Covering all points of the compass and everything from rooftops, tracksides, illegals and legals, all 6 photographers believe that the artistic talents and technical skills of Londonâ outdoor clandestine artists are truly worthy subjects as art rather than just evidence of misdemeanor. This collection of photographs is curated to contextualise Londonâ graffiti heritage as part of the colour, beauty and character of our city, rather than a blot on the landscape.
The show takes place at the ICA, launches 23 February and runs through to the following Sunday, so like a lot of the best graffiti, blink and you'll miss it.
Prints from the show will be available for sale as well as a commemorative zine which will showcase a broader range of this group street photography featuring mainly graffiti and street art that isn't displayed at the ICA.
