Weapon of Choice Gallery are proud to host the first solo show from the artist know as 'Lokey'.
Opening preview 12th November 6-10pm.
Lokey was born and raised in Bristol. His passion for Graffiti started in the mid 1980’s through a chance meeting in a local park, with some kid’s break-dancing who had returned from their holiday in America with hip-hop mix tapes and photographs of Graffiti.
Lokey, amongst Bristol's second wave of graffiti writers is the youngest of the veterans. Growing up in the Kingswood Hip Hop scene that nurtured the likes of Deed, Cheo, Kato and Soker went on to be a member of Bad Applez, Dry Breadz & more recently Weapon of Choice. Collaborator with Banksy amongst many others Lokey has been painting the streets of Bristol over the last 2 decades in the once underground scene, which is now very much a part of the day to day lives of Bristolian people.. Considered one of the best 3D letter writers around but not being pinned down to just 3D, keeping a vast amount of styles under his belt. The show is an exhibition of artworks adapted from Lokey’s black books, his inspiration for his Graffiti, and an insight into his imagination... Check out the book 'Children of the Can' for a full interview with the man himself. This one's not to be missed!
Show runs until the 5th of December 2010.
