Selected works of Inkie’s art is featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

Looking at Inkie’s latest works at a glance. His colourful graffiti combine depictions of human figures pictures, painted in an art nouveau-esque style with traditional graffiti writing. But even before this phase, he was already one of the pinnacles of British graffiti art: as of the early 1980’s, Inkie was a member of the legendary CIC (Crime Incorporated Crew), participated in the World Street Art championship of 1989 and left hundreds of artworks on hundreds of streets worldwide.
