Askew has been pushing style for years now, especially the last decade and to have a couple hours with him explaining his how he found the culture, what pushed and helped him assert himself to make NZ a country worth high regard for Graffiti and how it gave him the confidence to keep it going and become the artist he is today.. a real amazing convo, go check in insta whist you listen @askewone this is some of Askews, Auckland, culture and creativity story.. this is F24..

Diego Bergia On The F24 Podcast
Hello and welcome back to the F24podcast my name is David and as often as possible I sit down with a creative at my studio in North Acton to talk about their lives and interactions with where they are from, culture and creativity. But like most of you, I’m in lockdown on my narrow boat on the canal, I’m just west of the city limits and I’ve set up a little studio space outside under a tree next to my woodpile producing small paintings and sculptures. The effect of this worldwide lockdown is having quite an effect on me, but as any listeners will know what I love about creativity and its therapeutic assets.. I’ve been putting them to use and I hope you have too and are all well and bearing up with this madness, we’ll have it figured soon. In the meantime, I’ve been on skype chatting to creatives and getting these interviews done and this week I have Diego Bergia. Diego is from Toronto and his work caught my eye a couple years ago when I saw a 90’s style videogame online with Revok, Giant and Ces doing tags and extinguisher hits whilst shooting robots.. it blew my mind.. I did a little stalking and found out he wrote graffiti and thought, that’s my ish.. As I ain't seeing people face to face I thought I’d holla Diego and get some history this and I’m glad I did because there was a dope surprise halfway through when we got onto a wheat paste period he was in.. check him @diego_bergia on Instagram whilst you listen. Enjoy, this is some of Diego’s Toronto, culture and creativity story.. enjoy this is f24.

Vents RTR On The F24 Podcast
Hello and welcome back to the. F24 podcast.. my name is David and in what were normal times, I invited creatives over to my studio in north Acton to have a conversation about their lives and interactions with London, culture and creativity. But we are what, 5 weeks into this worldwide lockdown.. the maddest time of most of our lives so I’m at home like the rest of you so decided to make this thing worldwide. I hope you’re all safe and well, the numbers we are seeing daily are crazy, quiet overwhelming but one thing for sure is that we’ve shown how much we can do for each other not what they can do for us. We’ve stood up and looked out for each other and helped where possible.. That’s love, on a massive scale.. that’s gonna do some dope stuff for us in the future, let’s keep it up. This week, well last week I had this conversation with New Zealand graffiti stalwart Vents from RTR crew Auckland. We had a dope chat, me kinda chatting into the future as he’s 13hrs ahead. We cover loads, what it was like where he grew up, what the kind of graffiti he saw growing up and his first feelings of notoriety when he placed his first words on a wall and drawings on an arcade game. We talk about his route into painting, when the right time arose and the commitment he put to it. He tells us about some NZ history, the crews and paintings that were about, the name he started with, travelling and a story about London’s very own @meanpfb. It was a dope chat, a privilege. This is some of Vents RTR’s Auckland, culture and creativity story, check him at sub_automic whilst you listen, enjoy this is f24.

Elph On The F24 Podcast
Hello and welcome back to the. F24 podcast.. my name is David and in what were normal times, I invited creatives over to my studio in north Acton to have a conversation about their lives and interactions with London, culture and creativity. Currently though, we are on a world-wide lockdown, worldwide, an expectation for every human on the planet.. nuts! So, I’m home, on my narrow boat luckily with a garden, just outside London. Painting in my makeshift studio that I’ve made under a tree where we keep our wood pile, wondering what the fuck happened and when will it be over whilst listening to podcasts and music, painting, walking the dogs and chilling with my partner. I can’t deny I miss my studio loads and am worried about my business, but these things are out of my hands for now so for now it’s the mantra, this too shall pass… Given this time along with the rest of the world I’ve decided to push this podcast worldwide, everyone’s home so catch em now and have that conversation.. this week, not too far away, Elph from Edinburgh. I’ve been wanting to get Elph on for a while now and I was even up there last summer but I was with the family, a beautiful little town on the east coast of fife, it was hard to get away.. so, no better time than now. Elph's been at it since the mid-nineties and right from the start of seeing his pieces it was obvious he was a style master, constantly pushing his letter form and character style, his colour palette and shapes, he’s always stood out. It was dope getting some time with him on skype the other day, getting some of the back story, the how too and hearing about some hidden gems of advice he had been given on route.. got check him out @elphone on Instagram whist you listen.. This is some of Elph's, story. Enjoy, this is F24.

Last week I had Hana Sunny Whaler, a sign writer residing in South London. I met Hanah through a shared client in maybe 2016/17, we spent a couple days together working on a large wall painting directed by her then painted.

Pavan On The F24 Podcast
In October last year Pavan and I were working out how to meet up but things kept coming up and we had to keep re booking until one day in early December I’m scrolling Instagram and I see a sleepy faced Pavan, head resting on some boxes in a car basically saying goodbye to the UK. I didn’t want to get to him right away I thought I’d let whatever happen lie for a week or two and then we spoke, Foreign Beggars had dropped their last album, and this meant his visa was done… He was heading back to Dubai.. We chatted, it was a bit of a mind fuck for me, I’ve known Pavan for maybe 15yrs not properly but in stores, shared friends, jams etc, loving the music from the iconic Asylum Speakers album but you’d think I’dda known that he was on a visa, I’m nosey.. I needed to know and wanted the story for the archive, Pavan has done so much!. We booked a date, opened up skype and got chatting, its dope, honest, inspiring and I now have a complete new found respect for Foreign Beggars after having this chat.. they worked.... This is part of Pavan’s story and some of his interactions with London, culture and creativity, enjoy this is F24.

Marcus Barnes On The F24 Podcast
This week Marcus Barnes, an author, music journalist and graffiti artist. His graffiti name has been in my vision for about 15 years now, a prolific train painter from South London. We met a couple times over the years but never properly and having him come round here was dope. The last time we spoke was at Aset’s funeral and I talk about it towards the end of the podcast, that conversation made me really want to know more about him and I’ve so grateful he came round and shared his story with us. Another dope insight to a creatives life and path so far. We get through loads from his really interesting upbringing full of inspirational people, finding graffiti and the moral grounds he had to explore in order to do it, his working life and experiences with Lad Mags to the Daily Mail and his massive passion for music. We also chat about the pointless and yet extensive court case brought upon him by Colin Saycell and BTP for his publication of his magazine Keep the Faith. He travelled t…

I’ve been away working on an amazing project in Dublin, my second building for the Iconic Offices company over there and with help from my good friend Omin, my Irish OG, I built a great team to work with me on the artwork I designed and also work alongside a wide array of dope Irish artists to produce their own work also throughout the refurbished building. I had a great time, dope team and beautiful city.. I loved it, my mums from there also, so some roots were felt. Whilst I was there, I recorded this, I wanted to record more but we were putting in 16hr days but I did get this, a chat with two legends, one from just outside Dublin, Rask and one from Belfast, Moves. This was dope, it came together as King Rask knew I was in town working and hollered about painting on the one day I had off so I ended up doing a wall in town with Moves who painted the word Toar, he dropped me a couple colours and we schemed pieces and backgrounded the wall. We had some amazing convo whilst painting an…

A UK OG, he's pretty much been there from the beginning of the graffiti culture in the UK but not coming out of London, but Paddock Wood in Kent he's had an intense and interesting relationship with the culture. We go through all the decades graffiti has been in the UK as Skore has been at this since 84, with no breaks. Graffiti is his life, it's him, literally. He obviously did the work and house, real life stuff on route and we'll hear about and how he juggled it, but the thing I find most fascinating and this is the same with other writers from the first generation, is that they still paint and it still means as much to them with the bonus's that build up of added val…

Jan Francis By Jack ATG On The F24 Podcast
We’re going to have a bit of a different one this week, I started working on this podcast idea about 2 years ago, I love podcasts and I love my culture, I know most of you know that and we have so many people with the best of stories so I got it together and recorded some, Jack Murray, Will Robson Scott, Any Gillman, Done London and Jamal Peace, they are the early ones in the series but it took me pretty much a year before I put them out. Anxiety, confidence and making my business and work more important than feeding my soul all came into play and I couldn’t justify spending all the time it’d take to do this. I stored the recordings. Then Jan passed away in late December 2017. I’d known him since the 90’s, properly. It hit hard. The funeral was a few weeks later and I went with my friend and fellow NW6er Sam. It was great to see all these people come to pay respects to Jan. A tearful and yet joyous event full of stories, memories, laughs and tears. He touched a crazy amount o…

This week, I can say I have one of my closet friends at the Studio. To me and many, he's an inspiration, a cultural icon, a style king and also a great dad. It's been a minute since we had our last weekly coffee on upper St. in Angel and actually our last one was in Kentish Town on the strip and it was times like those that really built our relationship it took our conversation to another level and we bonded with our similarities, estate life, young dads and the finding of culture and it's growth into a creative life. As the years have passed and life cracks on and asks more of your day we don't grab as many coffees as we used too but we've always been in contact in some way even though he doesn't have a phone! This is one half of the legendary TaskForce, the Highbury Estate veteran and to me an oracle of life in the North East of our city, Farma G!. He has experienced loads, put himself through a bag load of actions and activities and this was all before he finished school. It was so…

This week’s chat is with Joe Holbrooke a guy I’ve known for pretty much 15 years and I love it when I have a perception about someone, even after knowing them that long and finding out my perception means nada in their life, it wasn’t his reality. I presumed Joe was classically trained, I presumed he got to this stage of his art carrear through conventional ways. His paintings, his subjects, his intrigue in different artistic mediums, his concepts. but no, we need to watch our perceptions. I was wrong, this was great having Joe round to the studio and filling us in on his journey. Brie the Beagle was owning the studio that evening and you’ll hear her as she drinks her water and getting told off and also with us was Josh, my son sat in on this one which was dope. cause well he’s my son and was about 4 when he met Joe, so he was genuinely intrigued to hear his story.

This week I have a guy I've known for years and watched his rise, K or as some of you may know him as Kemo SMT and his also for the last couple years, The London Vagabond. He came round with his girlfriend Dana, a creative also and we had a great conversation about his introduction to the graffiti culture through his dad whilst he was in primary school and what life was like growing up in Ruislip at the end of the central line. We chat about education but he explains also how graffiti took over. K has had many run ins with the law over the last 10 years and it started in a dramatic way and he tells us about that and how prison was. We chat about his years of graffiti court cases and more prison time but he also had a the massive positive impact that the culture had on his life and we talk about that what he learnt about himself and the run up to his photography and what that's brought him already.

Richard Wilson on the F24 Podcast
Hello and welcome back to the F24 Podcast, my name is David and each week I invite a creative over to my studio to talk about their interactions and experiences with London culture and creativity. This week’s conversation is with Richard Wilson. You may have seen the worldwide press about Rich’s Will Smith painting that he did in West Philly, an amazing and extremely impressive full body 65ft painting of the Fresh Prince sitting on a chair on the side of a building that sits in a school playground. It is full of references, to the Jordan’s he’s wearing to the t-shirt and cap hanging off the back of the chair and then the chair itself and the leaves wrapped around it’s legs which is homage to his favourite artist and his paintings. An incredible feat from the Londoner, we’ll hear about that whole project, its inception and the work he put into it to make it happen along with where Rich is from, one of the reasons I asked him over, a painting in Acton and what it said to me.…

What a pleasure him coming over, the day before he was interviewing Rick Ross and the day after he was off to Europe to DJ.

I met Luis when I was visiting my mate Jonny Banger, his shop is next door to Luis’. Jonny being the gent he is and knowing how much I ‘d love to see the space, I met Luis. I was completely amazed! What a space, loads of machinery, screen beds, exposure units, carousels, work benches, an amazing ceiling and two beautiful little saffys! The work he produces with his colleagues in that space is unique, beautifully designed and manufactured and inspiring. I didn’t know much about Luis and Tottenham Textiles other than my visit to the space and seeing his fly pieces on their Instagram @tottenhamtextiles. Luis has had a great journey so far and we talk about his education and time at the Royal College where he got his BA in Men’s Fashion, working for different brands and also teaching at university level, eventually getting to Tottenha…

So this week, another one from my extended cultural family is London’s one and only, Theo Keating otherwise known as the infamous Fake Blood and UK Graffiti’s very own Snatch CWS/ PFB/TO… This guy, since ive been in the culture, this guy’s pieces have been it for me.. I might be looking and reminiscing at the past with glazed eyes but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad piece by this guy.. All fire, all the time.. My favourites must include the '93 Unity Jam piece in Fulham, crazy cool and fresh and would stand up today easily, 25 yrs on and you hear us chat about that painting and more but apart from just getting my graffiti drenched brain more fodder another reason I got Theo round was to hear about how he got into music and what lead him to make a career out of it and one with so much adventure too!

TY on The F24 Podcast
This weeks interview is with Britain's very own TY, a musician from Brixton. I found TY's music early on in moving to Brighton, I was in HMV on western rd. with my best mate Nick and we heard some amazing sounds over the stores speakers, I asked what it was and copped the vinyl straight away. It became one of the larger parts of the soundtrack for that time in my life and it was also one of the first UK Hip Hop albums I bought a culture that would become incredibly important to me over the following years, not a bad intro huh Amazing to have him round, a real pleasure. Enjoy!

Jimi GANG Studio on the F24 Podcast
This weeks chat is with Jimi from GANG Studio. I’ve known Jimi for years, a lot of you have also. We met in the early 2000’s through our shared good friend and Brighton stalwart Jode. When I met him he was already thoroughly on his journey with creativity, I remember a time I was getting interviewed for a magazine, they were doing a piece on my shop, we’d just started working with Jimi and the interviewer suggested we were taking him under our wing, which may have been the perception but not the reality, my friend replied by saying, Jimi’s too big to fit under our wings, meaning he was already a creative force to be reckoned with, with an unrivalled skill set and vision. He had the spirit, the energy and the belief that he just could do, and do he would. He’s produced loads of great work which we’ll hear about but tell you what though, it was really interesting him explaining that belief in himself and its root and how that behaviour, attitude, the ‘I’ll have a go’ ap…

Jonny Banger On The F24 Podcast
This week we have Jonny Banger, or as some of you may know him, Sports Banger. I've known Jonny for years, since my days in Brighton. When I met him he was a DJing round the city at various events and he actually ended up, along with his good friend Daps holding down the decks at the open mics I used to put on at my shop every weekend or so. I saw the start of his first brand which was hilarious as it was very unexpected and took the UK hip hop scene by storm, there was a real clear wave of resonation, understanding and simplicity that came from that first Tshirt, it was perfect for the scene and the public gave back the same energy, Jonny is that guy. He understands, he gets it and quite clearly too. This was dope, getting to fill in the gaps, talk about old times and hear about his journey so far, also getting a glimpse into what Sports Banger is about and, well you must know me by now, the story hunter, I loved it. Enjoy.. This is F24.

Mark Prime Sinckler on the F24 Podcast
This weeks creative is Mark Sinckler, London Graffiti’s very own PRIME. Mark is an integral to the path I chose. When I first met him I was 16/17 years old, 1996/7. I was working in a dead end job selling advertising space in an Arabic Newspaper based in West Hampstead. I don’t think I sold one advert but what I did manage to do was to persuade the editor to let me write a piece and interview Mark about his paintings at the time where he was using Arabic text in his murals. It was a blag, I hadn’t written anything other than a tag since leaving school but idea was going to get me to meet a London Don! I’d only been writing graffiti for about 2 years but even then I loved learning about the culture I was getting deeper into and after seeing Primes pieces in graphotism and seeing his a tag of his that stayed for years on one of the tunnel entrances at Farringdon I knew I had to meet this man.. I did, we met in a café on Kilburn High Rd late one mid week night and he was a gent.…

Harry is a photographer and used to be a graffiti writer, labelled the million pound vandal by the UK press and is from Kensal Rise. He's run through a couple cultures on his route to creativity. He's a big lad, covered in tattoos, sports a vest in the summer months and could be intimidating if you saw him jump out on you on the Bakerloo line with his camera but when chatting to him it breaks down all perceptions and it was really cool chatting to him about his influences and experiences in his story about London, Culture and Creativity.
