Inspired By Banksy’s Works, I Gave Up Alcohol And Drugs For Street Art

My name is Jamie Scanlon and I am the UK-based street artist JPS.

I got into street art in 2009 after visiting Banksy’s excellent museum exhibition which inspired me to face up my problems with drinking and drugs.

I replaced all that buzz with illegally painting, although the greatest part is people liking my work and being able to feel as though I’m giving something back to the world. Here is a selection of some of my works.
