Goldie 1982-1996 Retrospective

Goldie 1982-1996 Retrospective

Goldie’s style began on the streets of Birmingham and Wolverhampton where a desire to express himself became externalised in the bright jarring colours and dimensionally challenging motifs of the modern caveman; Graffiti. 

His creations now hang in galleries around the world and in the private collections of films stars, millionaires and royalty.

In the early eighties, Goldie earned his name as a graffiti artist in the West Midlands with his artwork appearing in Dick Fontaine’s 1985 feature film documentary ‘Bombin’ (broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK). He took part in the largest British graffiti art battle alongside Bristol artist 3D, who later went on to form Massive Attack.

Goldie and his work are featured in the book ‘Spraycan Art’ by Henry Chalfant & James Prigoff. Goldie has produced artistic works with 3D (Massive Attack) and Sarah Gregory.
