Skewville / NYC

The twin brothers that make up street art collaborative effort Skewville began leaving behind their sneaker cutouts in Brooklyn sometime around 1999.

Silhouettes of the shoes seen dangling from the wires reference the urban NYC upbringing of the pair, and while some may associate these markers with gang or drug territory, for others, they are a nostalgic reminder of mischievous adolescent memories.

Following a none-more-retro installation at Moniker’s Brooklyn debut earlier this year, the pair descend on Shoreditch to bring their unique take on street culture to the walls of the Old Truman Brewery, and transport visitors to an era tied to the heart of urban art’s early days.
