Our friends over at the street art and design site, Feed Me Cool Shit have a revealing interview up with UK artist Sickboy, who talks about his earliest days on the streets. ‘I have been writing graffiti for maybe 14 years, first started with nick names drawn in a strange style. I don’t think it was really graffiti in terms of Classic style that derives from New York, just stupid stuff that I used to do in the back of my school books and on desks. Then my friend introduced me to real graffiti style through his brother who was doing a lot of bombing in Manchester (UK), at the time he wrote Shit. He had a really nice style though, and I decided then that I’d like to try and create a style of my own’. Read more of the interview at the Feed Me Cool Shit site.
