Yo! I'm KEEGAN, a digital creative from London.
I grew up playing SNES and PC games. Hacking any system I could get my hands on. Overclocking CPUs 'til they smoked.
Lurking in comic shops. Digging the crates for niche American comics and imported Japanese manga. Sharing anime fan-subs on IRC and BitTorrent.
Meticulously copying drawings of my favourite characters and beginning to experiment with Photoshop. Creating my first digital work.
Then, in the mid-2000s, I discovered the hip-hop subculture and spent the following years on a graffiti writing adventure that took over my life for the next decade...
By 2009, I had launched The London Vandal - an underground online journal where I shared my observations of the scene.
I was blessed to link up with local and international graff writers to create original and authentic content and design printed items for a few collectors in the community.
In 2015, six years after launching the project, I stepped away from curating the graff scene.
Like graffiti on a wall, the era wouldn't last forever. The record had to be scrubbed.
I powered down The London Vandal's server, taking the archive offline for good.
But graffiti and street-art had introduced me to a diverse world of talented artists and I vowed to one day become one of them.
Drawing from a rich variety of work that inspires me, I now work digitally, as well as with spray paint and traditional materials.
I share my work and connect with kool people at pop-up events and on Instagram.
I also (poorly) maintain a motivational rap music playlist on Spotify.
