Taken from the 8 New Paintings collection
As a young boy I remember seeing the National Front symbol graffitied on a wall for the first time in the 1970s. I was on my way to the shops and had to walk through an underpass that connected the Batemoor estate I lived on with a neighbouring one. There, sprayed onto the subway wall was this symbol of racial hate. At the time I was particularly into The Specials and the Ska movement which was very much about racial unity, so to see that message not getting through was depressing to say the least. Fortunately, a few weeks later a further addition was added to the graffiti and it was reassuring to see hate had a resistance. Sadly, over four decades later we still have a way to go, as pages on social media have become virtual walls on which similar messages are typed rather than sprayed.
