Rude Kids series in Liverpool by Dotmaster

They’re cheeky and unadulterated. So Banksy-esque. They act to eradicate the stigma of graffiti as mess. There is nothing unclean about this. Except, perhaps, the manners of the kids that this artist portrays. We all know children can get away with an awful lot of mischief, and this generates a smile from that sneaky inner child in all of us. It’s an altogether brilliant concept and collection that the artist absolutely gets away with. Lara, 23, graduate, Chester
