This article is dedicated to pioneering graffiti artist Shoes who created several murals in the town of Buckingham located on the outskirts of Milton Keynes during the mid to late 1980s. Break to the beat have been unable to clarify if Shoes was a local resident living in the town or a student studying at Buckingham University.
“S” by Shoes – Nelson Street, Buckingham,1988.
The photos displayed in the below slideshow were taken during the early 1990s by Kraze One and the oldest piece dates back to 1987. The various pieces of artwork created by Shoes remained visible until the mid 1990s when eventually the buildings were either demolished or repainted.
