Who are we
We been playing on the streets of London since the early 70s & in the early 80s we scuffed our knees in the golden era of UK BMXing and Skateboarding, we pioneered it all. While at the same time kick started the birth of UK Graffiti & Hip Hop, we would spend every spare minute of the day painting our artwork on the side of any surface possible, then we took our art & painted it on the side of the London Underground system while dodging laser tripwires, razor-sharp fences & the mighty electric 3rd rail. Then came the 90s & we was exploring high-rise London tower blocks to set up our pirate radio aerials, we started broadcasting our music live over London while raving in dark sweaty clubs & fields to REAL DJs with boxes of vinyl, not a USB stick in sight. Hence our love for music and our very own internet radio station Graffiti Kings Radio.
Then we grew up & became adults & started painting walls legally, & will keep painting walls till our very end. Till then we have found another passion, clothes, quality clothes, for us, it's quality, not quantity. All our clothes are made to order & printed in the UK by us, we oversee everything, this was key to our new venture as we wanted to make sure that every item we sent out was quality checked if we wouldn't wear it we wouldn't sell it.
We know you will LOVE our clothing & want to thank you in advance for supporting our new venture.
Darren Cullen aka SER, founder of Graffiti Kings - Words often used; legendary, world renown, infamous, notorious are said to describe graffiti Artist SER aka Darren Cullen. Hailing from South London SER began his graffiti career way back in 1983, at the very birth of British graffiti; he is regarded as a UK graffiti pioneer and king. His path in graffiti started like many graffiti artists with the birth of hip-hop culture in the early 80s. Exploring every aspect of the graffiti-writing scene SER found himself emblazoning his name across the streets and walls of London. This led to a greater need to increase his presence to the public so began the systematic destruction of the bus, train networks, and rail infrastructure across the UK and the world.
There then comes a point in every Graffiti artist’s life when their illegal activity becomes of great interest to the Police and local authorities. This is the time when a decision must be made as having a cell as a second home isn't that appealing. This decision spurred SER into forming the ‘Graffiti kings’ the UK’s first professional graffiti art company and graffiti artist agency. Darren is the only graffiti artist approved by the British Government & was chosen as the official street artist for the London 2012 Olympic Games, wow times have changed.
