Mode 2 | The Thinking Man of the British Graffiti Movement

 

Mode 2 the thinking man of the British graffiti movement was born in Mauritius in 1967, spending his childhood under the sun of the Indian Ocean, before moving to the UK in July 1976. Punk had just started its own cultural revolution, while reggae and dub were ever present in the neighbourhood “blues” parties, as well as from the first real booming systems in the cars that would ever so often drive casually through the streets of Lewisham, South-East London. “I did all of my schooling there, drawing since as far back as I can remember, spending my youth deep into comics, sci-fi and fantasy literature, as well as role-playing games such as ‘Dungeons & Dragons’”.
