Inkie is one of the first and most prolific graffiti artists in Britain. Living in the town of Bristol, he was a member of Crime Inc. Crew alongside 3D of Massive Attack fame and Nick Walker. He painted his first wildstyle in the summer of 1984, influenced by punk rock album graphics and early New York wild style pioneers such as Dondi, Seen & T-Kid. He came 2nd in the World Street Art championships in 1989 against fierce competiton from LA, New York and all the major European countries but later that year was arrested along with 72 other writers in the UK’s largest ever Graffiti bust Operation Anderson. In the late 1990s he moved to London at the same time as fellow Bristolian and graffiti cohorts Banksy and Will Barras and has since worked as a leading graphic designer in the video game industry as well as continuing to contribute to the UK graffiti scene. In the late 1990s Inkie and fellow Bristolian Banksy collaborated on the largest ever UK graffiti event, ‘Walls On Fire’, where they pulled together UK’s finest street artists to create 1.4 km painting around Bristol’s historic docks. He’s also produced work for Puma, Xbox, Adidas, Levis, Addict, Lovebox and Latitude Festivals and his graffiti featured in SEGA’s seminal video game Jet Set Radio. Inkie is featured in the 2007 LA graffiti documentary Bomb It, and takes centre stage in the British/Brazilian street art documentary, currently in production, entitled Weapon of Choice.
