David’s three published books – Scrawl 2, Zines and Stick ’em up – were all accompanied by book launches and exhibitions in the UK, America and Australia, and included interviews on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row and Australia’s 3RRR Radio, talking about the global street art scene. A source of inspiration since the day he stumbled across a Keith Haring street mural in his hometown Melbourne at the age of 10!
