Bonzia – Graffiti Kings

Check out this graffiti classic by Graffiti Kings artist Bonzia.

For those who don’t know, Darren Cullen, the founder of Graffiti Kings, was found in a bit of an odd situation recently – the only graffiti artist approved by the British Government & official graffiti artist for London 2012 he was actually arrested in a raid on graffiti artists’ homes. He was then told he could not go within a certain radius of the Olympics, despite the fact he has been a law abiding artist for years and had been specifically appointed the above role. It was all very hypocritical and ridiculous at the time so we just wanted to voice our support for The Graffiti Kings and all the work they do in promoting graffiti and helping to rid the stereotypes of vandalism.
