Who Made Who 2022

A study in style.

I approached a bunch of graffiti writers, both domestic and abroad, whom I respect and whose styles I really dig. I asked them to show me how they would draw graffiti-like lettering from my tag ‘Acton’. In return I drew their tags.

Many of the sketches I received were later transferred onto canvas or a wall, sometimes morphing a lot in the process. Even though all the works are based on letter forms by various artists, they are executed by my methods and my choices, making it difficult to say who made who and whose style is present at that moment. And in the end, does it really matter?
