The Urban Grocer Contributor

By The Urban Grocer in New Food and Packaging on Saturday 28 July 2012

Prowla’s design, which spells out ‘Hive’, is constructed in concrete to make the graffiti relief façade complete with arrows, swooshes and drips that will see any council worker have major problems to try and clean it away.

By Olgica Terzic in New Art on Wednesday 23 May 2012

MAD C is an amazing German graffiti artist with a brutal style of street letters.

By Mat Miller in New Design on Monday 30 April 2012

I’m a freelance illustrator and designer from the UK working in the realms of vector illustration, photo montage and manipulation, and mixed media.
