Panik started his career in 1999 in and around Camden, North London. The ATG Crew were formed in 2001 and became a driving force in the UK graffiti world that didn't go un-noticed. They quickly became one of the most prolific and innovative crews to have come out of the capital, taking the art of getting up to levels that weren’t common in London at that time. Famed for his spiderman antics, Panik has been labelled London’s rooftop king. There almost wasn’t a single high road in the city without his name sitting above it.

 years of painting in the streets. His work to date is a vibrant,mixed media, abstract reflection of everyday
