This is just a list of the 10 graffiti/street artists whose work will always make me smile when I come across it — in the streets, in galleries or on Insta.
Not surprisingly the list is heavy on the Bristol entries but there are a few from elsewhere and I was surprised myself by the mix of styles — I always think of myself as a fan of old school writers — and there is a modern element of that here with Eine, Shoe and Voyder but obviously my tastes have evolved as much as the art has.
…and no — Banksy missing isn’t a mistake.
A list of the artists who had the biggest influence on me loving this thing would be different — Lee, Seen, Dondi, Pride, Mode2, 3D, Goldie, Inkie, Shab and many, many more.
This list reflects my taste today.
