Eine is most notable for his alphabet lettering on shop shutters in London's Shoreditch, Brick Lane and Broadway Market areas. He has also taken his lettering to the streets of Paris, Stockholm, Hastings and Newcastle upon Tyne. Prior to becoming involved in commercial graffiti, Eine was a highly credible writer in the underground London graffiti scene. His unusual 'throw up' was created to stand out from the usual tags and dubs seen on the streets and can still be found in some areas of East London.
Eine started to explore screen prints, eventually working as a screen printer for cult screen print company Pictures On Walls. Eine produced many of the hand pulled prints for artists represented by POW including Banksy, Jamie Hewlett, Mode2, Modern Toss and David Shrigley. His natural talent for colour combinations meant that he was able to enhance the work supplied by the artists. He left this position to pursue his own solo career in 2008.

“Ravel said he wanted his music to be complex, but not complicated. Anita Klein might say the same of her art. There is a grand simplicity to her works, but that is not the same as saying they lack subtlety and ambiguity. On the contrary, they have the sort of unselfconscious directness that comes from living and breathing art for so long that it becomes second nature” John Russell Taylor

Belfast-born, now London-based, artist Steven Quinn creates epic collages pasted together from cut-outs of old magazines, fanzines, posters and his own photography. The results are devastatingly poignant landscapes and portraits, often with an apocalyptic theme. Steven Quinn plays with imagery in a fresh and unique way, toying with ideas and twisting images from their original context into new and sometimes humorous narratives.
When Steven Quinn describes his work, he says “It’s a big melting pot where everything informs the other; a collage of inspiration, style, backgrounds. Most of my ideas strand from science and to date I think one of the coolest things I have done was to have had my DNA tested and printed as a portrait for The National Portrait Gallery”.
A respected train writer, Remi has also played a significant part in the development of ‘abstract graffiti’, a term that seems far too clinical to describe the accomplishments of his work, which has always been about the interplay of colour and shape. His colour palette is worked out through deceptively simple arrangements of lines and angles that bring colours into unexpected encounters with each other. His art began on the walls and trains of South London in 1984, it has since been exhibited in major cities such as Miami, Los Angeles, Berlin and New York.
