UPDATE 09/05

If you have been keeping an eye on this Kickstarter you will see that the project fell short of the target required and was not funded. I have had a chat with one of the photographers and the book will still be produced although maybe in a smaller run at first. I've seen the first mock up and it's going to be well worth the wait. artbleat will publish any future details as soon as I get them.

Last Friday night in West London saw the opening of a photographic exhibition to celebrate the release of The Writing On The Wall by Roger Perry.

The book originally released way back in 1976 documents London graffiti long before the influence of the hiphop and punk rock cultures that shaped the street art and graffiti we know today. From the political writings of King Mob to the tags of future Madness members and banal comical slogans daubed on London's streets the photos of Roger Perry form a unique time capsule that is now available to a fresh generation.

Roger Perry passed away in 1981 so if it wasn't for George Stewart-Lockharte's perseverance in pulling together this new and expanded volume, The Writing On The Wall could have just existed as a thing of legend occasionally available for a premium on eBay.

You can see a bunch of photos from the show HERE in the artbleat gallery.





The show is on until 1st August

Mon - Sat / 12pm - 6pm

at:

The Horse Hospital

Colonnade

Bloomsbury

London

WC1N 1JD
