Graffiti Artists | OLD Skool
A shopping trolley, transistor radio and zimmer-frame are the objects fronting this group of anarchists. One sporting spectacles, wearing a policeman’s helmet, with his arms folded in defiance with a somewhat smug look on his face. While another yob, bottle of booze in one hand, leaning against the wall with the other, his baseball cap on back to front. The pink sprayed words “OLD Skool” could well have been the work of this gang of punks, a collection of rejects from the 1970s with a bad attitude.
This rarity I captured on the wall of a one-time petrol station in Clerkenwell Road, which had been abandoned for over thirty years to my knowledge. The artwork didn't hang around too long and was painted over after just a few weeks after this picture, but it remains forever in the Knowledge of London collection!
