Drug drive graffiti on show in London

Friday 2nd October 2009

Two graffiti artists have been hosting an exhibition this week in London in support of the THINK! drug driving campaign (Culture 24).

Artists Jimi Crayon and Stika are displaying their work on a wall off Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch.

The massive area scales 16.5 metre long by eight metres high. The high-impact image depicts three sections showing the effects of cannabis, cocaine and ecstasy on the eyes.

Jimi Crayon says: "I thought the drug driving adverts were great. Stika and I had, coincidentally, been drawing and painting eyes recently, so to do our own artistic interpretation of what was already there seemed like the perfect way to be creative and get an important message across."

The messages,'Drug driving – is it worth it?' and 'Your eyes will give you away' accompany the work reminding the viewer of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs.

The work will remain on display until 3 October.
