Tyke AWR 1996 and 2010

People often mistake bands or actors having overnight success. Most people pay their dues over many years before becoming known. The same goes with graffiti. Most of the time people that paint great pieces have been doing it for many years.

The skills do not come overnight. I recently flicked a piece by Tyke/Witnes on Melrose on the Baracuda store wall. I remember seeing pieces by him in the 1990s at the Motor Yards. It is always interesting comparing pieces done over a decade ago with current work. In this post, you can see one of his pieces from 1996 and a piece painted in 2010.

what's the point of covering it? Giant used bucket paint, witnes is using spray paint. You need so much more paint. It's a waste!!
