ROID is a talented graffiti writer from UK [Bristol] who is definetly inspired by the Sci-fi aesthetics and who likes the post future music.

All that are highlighted by a smart using of the fluo colors. In fact, It’s a Back to the future graffiti like FUTURA 2000 had intoduced in its time.

So, finaly an other anonymous graffiti writer made a smart compromise (and did it the first), Keep your eyes opened, it’s shining:
