You’ll Thank Me One Day

I first painted this wall in 1997 when it was pretty much a virgin spot. The only other graffiti was a giant hand painted in the 80’s and at the very far end, a historic collaboration between Rolf Harris and 808 State (which still remains today). For a while it became a Hall of Fame until they built some artist studios on the car park and fenced it off. I’ve painted it a few times since then but recently some of the “artists” in the studios objected. I was going to write CHILL OUT GRANDDAD, but opted for this instead… 




Thanks to Shaun Bloodworth and Dan Sumption for the photos once again.
