Addict continue their strong tradition of artist collaborations with the Addict x Goldie collection for Spring 2013. Goldie is a true original, a stand out character that can't be pigeon holed. He's multi-talented. He's a pioneer, a graffiti artist, a drum & bass legend, a DJ, Producer and actor.
Goldie earned his name as a graffiti artist in the West Midlands in the early eighties. His artwork around Birmingham and Wolverhampton was featured heavily in Afrikaa Bambaataa's 1985 feature film documentary 'Bombing'. He took part in the largest British graffiti art battle alongside Bristol artist 3D, who later went on to form Massive Attack, and is also featured in the book Spraycan Art by Henry Chalfant & James Prigoff.
Goldie has produced artistic works with 3D (Massive Attack) and Sarah Gregory, whilst being commissioned to produce pieces for Neneh Cherry, Noel Gallagher, Bjork, James Lavelle, Nellee Hooper, Kevin Spacey, The Sex Pistols, Snow Patrol, Pete Tong and Jason Statham to name but a few, depicting his prolific work.
In this exclusive ‘Photo Series’ tees, Addict present 3 iconic images from his personal archives depicting three of his main loves in life, simply titled ‘Graf’, ‘Music’ & ‘Gold’
