Piece Name - TRACKS AND CRACKS

RELMS is a Leicester based Graffiti artist.“Graffiti is like a circle, when you’re outside that circle it’s what everyone else tells you it is; not what you think it is. It’s been put in a bad place through the media. But whereas if you ask someone in the street, a lot of the time they agree with it. Because they think it’s better than what’s already there – but in terms of understanding, I don’t think they understand why we do it.”
