Bad Graffiti is a humorous celebration of the graffiti seen everyday in our cities and often overlooked. 

Bad Graffiti looks at the plethora of graffiti that adorns our cities at a ubiquitous, popular cultural level. It is a record of the graffiti of the everyday, not of the named ‘artists’ who have contributed to the many books on graffiti ‘art’ over the past ten years or so.

Scott Hocking has been photographing graffiti since 2007, focusing on the humorous commentary decorating urban landscapes and particularly in areas of decay or abandonment. Hocking’s photographs, collected here for the first time, tell the story of the everyday and showcase the areas or markings so often seen but also overlooked by others.

Bad Graffiti is a funny, informative and at times irreverent look at the urban landscape today, making a great gift for those interested in the city and popular culture.

    Taking the mundane and making it interesting. Good job. Now someone needs to explain just why there are so many badly...
