WARNING

 We are Graffiti Artists!
This means sometimes we might still paint Graffiti Art that we haven't been paid for,  in places we haven't always been invited. Often it doesn't last very long. couple of Examples here.......

Modern legal graffiti hotspots & legal walls are fantastic, however paint in them & your work no longer belongs to you, its at the mercy of the streets.

People with spraycans who think "nobodys watching!" The nature of graffiti dictates that the majority of the artists work is lost forever!
See prints of some of those lost pieces ​here at the Brave Arts Shop  http://www.etsy.com/shop/BraveArtsGraffiti#

Portrait of a king Destroyed by toys

Whilst this is a little extreme, typically this is what becomes of many of our greatest pieces It comes with the territory! You take your photo & say goodbye!

Brave Paints Reakt 

​​


Reakt is an amazing artist.  Who I learnt loads from.  He's an Artist that only paints in the halls of fame.  

The derilict & often neglected places where walls are exploited by artists who constantly paint over each other. In a tradition that is as old as graffiti itself.

I painted this portrait in Essex's largest hall of fame in 07, Reakt painted letters next to it.

It only lasted a couple of weeks tho....


 

She only lasted 6 days!

​​

Giving it away for free I painted this at the lakesdie Graffiti wall I Fancied doing something a little challenging, a little different. It was all free hand no stencils or stencil caps, I knew she wouldn't last!  When she was done I couldn't get enough of her" I took about 300 photos of her and kissed her goodbye!

Lakeside Essex 9th Feb 2008.
