80'S KINGSWAY GRAFFITI - JIMBO

This piece of work is by the AUA (Ardler United Artists).
The fact that it's part of a Kingsway flyover means it would be a pretty tough venue to get this done, having to avoid the volume of passing traffic. A couple of night-time commando raids needed to accomplish it no doubt!
The graffiti was put down around 1984/85, but after all that effort, in the end, the artist got busted for it!
Big thanks to Lyken.
Lyken, who is a Graffiti Writer and Graphic Artist himself, has his own website worth checking out http://lykenlove.wordpress.com/
A real visual treat.

  1. Really impressed with Lyken`s website.
    This is a question that perhaps Lyken can answer if he reads this, but out of interest, are Voigt Kampff planning any future recordings?
