So bummed to miss this show. It was on over the weekend but I had to work and missed the private view.
Petro is old school and hardcore… The show looks great and pretty much sums up his style of writing to a tee and has some little extras too. Affordable originals and screen prints too? Damn.
Photos from Elates blog HERE
I first saw Petro’s work in the abandoned buildings of Tonbridge and on tracksides around kent when I first started writing. Alongside other such heavy hitters as Oker, AKT etc… I just admired those guys… They seemed everywhere! I guess we were imitating those styles we saw but we would bomb every inch of the walls we could reach and take flicks. I shot thousands of photos back then, I should really dig them up. Loved those days and his pieces sort of sum up that time for me.

And have a read of an interview with Petro whilst your are cruising the information super highway. From Pimpguides. (Rare as Hens teeth so enjoy.)
