SAM - Dave The Chimp
"Dave the Chimp paints graffiti without his name, and makes fanzines to switch on your brain. He runs the 243rd Skateboard- ing Support Battalion, helped create Big Cheese Magazine and was a founder member of Finders Keepers Crew (along with D*Face, PMH, and Mysterious Al). He was head designer at Hessen Metal Skateboard Hardware and Artist in Residence at design/adver- tising agency Fold7. His work has appeared everywhere from children’s books for Hodder, tour posters for MTV, and number 1 UK singles, to the bottom of Burton Snowboards. He has worked on collaborations with Flying Fortress (under the name Visual Rock Stars) and murals and large abstract posters with the likes of Ekta, Nomad, and Product Two. He continues to bomb the streets under a variety of secret identities. Painting and skating keep the noose from around his neck."
