Spraying Bricks - Episode 5 - INKFETISH

October 2012 saw the launch of Tom Blackford's, aka Inkfetish's, first solo show. Spraying Bricks was fortunate enough to catch up with him a couple of weeks prior to the execution of this piece to mark the launch of his solo show, named Imaginary Friends. Held at the Blackall Studios, East London, Imaginary Friends explores childhood mythologies and fears of adapting to a surreal adult world and also marks Tom's progression into the fine-art world.

Tom was born and raised in London, and has been creating street art for over a decade, building a successful career as both a muralist and illustrator. His love for Japanese animation and pop culture has seen him produce work for Pixar & Blue Sky Studios and publications such as Vanity Fair, Bizarre and Graphotism. His fascination with Japanese animation that drove him to grace the streets of Tokyo and create large murals for Manga Entertainment ad his own brand of visual iconography.
