What impact does culture and context have on graffiti writers around the world?

As part of our London Design Festival exhibition, we shared six posters looking at how culture and context affects the work of graffiti writers and street artists in five cities across five cities spanning from the US, Latin America, Europe and Asia. The digital version of this cultural research, ‘Graffiti in context,’ is available to view below.


During our exhibition, we also collaborated with Karim Samuels, a local graffiti expert, to explore the amazing street art nestled amongst the buildings surrounding our pop-up exhibition this year. Some of these awe inspiring pieces can be seen on Pulse “Colours of (East) London“, a blog written by Sarita Wilkinson, Senior Consultant – Design Insight.
