I thank graffiti for transforming my perspective on the world. It is through graffiti that I have learnt what it means to be an artist. It seems that the majority of the population view graffiti simply as vandalism. My graffiti career has taken me on a roller coaster ride filled with highs and lows. It is through graffiti that I developed an artistic eye, learning about colour, design and even photography. The following video is a time lapse of a work of graffiti I painted in 2009.
