Message From The Artist
When you’re young you’re often told you’re too young to do things so I always made it my motto to dream big. I did this piece in 2012 when I was in London helping my father with a show he was doing. Every day we would go to a local pub near the venue so I familiarized myself with the area. One day I decided to paint this piece in the back of the pub so I asked my father for help. He stood watch on the corner spotting me while I did the piece but since I was in a rush I forgot to sign it. Because it was in London as an unsigned stencil, everyone assumed it was Bansky and it got a lot of fanfare for it. I never got credit for it and I was annoyed but then again Banksy inspired me to get into stencils so I guess I can’t complain.
