Roid: The future isn’t what it used to be

Starting as a graffiti writer in ‘99, Roid is now widely regarded as one of the most influential graffiti artists from the UK. He has strived to create his own unique style and advocates only looking outside the graffiti work for inspiration.

A prolific artist producing hundreds of pieces world-wide, Roid is treading a now familiar path, from buildings and walls to a studio and prints. The popularity of his illustration and artwork, as seen online and in a number of shows, has exploded.

Not only do I love the colour, composition,and the detail that goes into his work, I’m just astonished at the sheer variety of lettering and styles incorporated. You can see a a number of mediums being used alongside spay paint, including airbrushing and screen printing.
