Maybe the title of this page is incorrect as there are a few pictures on this page from the early 90's but what's for certain is the early London graffiti scene centered around the Ladbroke Grove area of West London and the weekend meet up spot at Covent Garden.
Run The World piece by Starlite Rockers, Eze 74 & Data 27- opposite Green Park station 1986.
Covent Garden was an early meeting site for London writers. It died down in about 87 and was started up again in 1990 but didnt last long.

From Mode 2 interview -
What was your first piece - where was it? Did you do it alone? “I don't know whether or not it was a couple of banners that I was helping Scribla to paint for the Alternative Arts Street Entertainers Festival of '84 in Covent Garden, OR the "Shock-Shack" piece I did by myself along the hoardings of the Royal Opera House... We used raw canvas for the banners and found out, the hard way, how not to use spray paint on a porous surface. As for "Shock-Shack", the piss take I was getting was, "Yeah, nuff arrows on that!", plus doing your first outlines in permanent markers is not advised...”
