Graffiti Gallery (4)

In the new year (1995) young graffiti artist SMEAR came to Hulme to paint with Kelzo (see Bb05). He produced characters either side of this piece. Before spring came he was dead. Nut allergy. Crazy times

In Memorium: Kayze, Tags, Arise & Shun all painted Stonelow Close on 12 February '95. A graffiti jam that would eventually bare his name was already being formulated by graffiti artist Kelzo, because deck-access flats on Bark Walk & Woodcock Square (long held stomping ground of ICA) were being cleared & readied for demolition
