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. ROID is come with a new aproach in the graffiti game mixing a cosmic environment, some retro graphic designs and simple letters (like those one on the trains). 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.
Currently, many graffiti activists copy his style but they don’t know which deep alternative cultures are hidden behind his production.

I remember 7 months ago, some great ex-team-mates very drunk (who actually make only exhibition…) said while laughing about me “…So Still using aerosols on the walls!?”.
They said “On our next wall, we will come with the jackhammer and will destroy the surface. The aerosol cans are dead!” (Amen)
Although they joked about the graffiti culture, our friends, me, and about…themself, in a way, I like their punky concept but….In spite of I really like to break the rules too, sometimes things are like they have to be. To not kill their funny mood, I have answered on my mind “If you take off all the water out of the pool, don’t be surpise to crash your face on the floor”. I Hope everyone understands my point of view…
So, finaly an other anonymous graffiti writer made a smart compromise (and did it the first), Keep your eyes opened, it’s shining:
