Sickboy's Graffiti Gravestones

Hot on the heels of his recent Giclee prints release (blogged here), Sickboy is back with more subversive street art. This latest project "Graffiti Gravestones" sees the new works installed on the streets of East London in the form of memorial shrines at sites where his graffiti has been whitewashed or torn down.
The artist ―who has spent most of his career painting his iconic temple logo onto walls and wheelie bins ― has revisited his old graffiti spots in London and placed ‘temple wreaths’, mourning ribbon and Sickboy shrine paraphernalia where his works once appeared.
