The London Police
The London Police is a renowned artist group that emerged from the streets of Amsterdam in the late 1990s. Founded by two artists known as Chaz Barrisson and Bob Gibson, the duo adopted the moniker “The London Police” as a humorous reference to the overwhelming presence of British tourists in their city. Their artistic journey began with simple chalk drawings on pavements, quickly evolving into a distinctive style characterized by playful, cartoonish characters combined with intricate patterns.
Over time, The London Police expanded their creative endeavors, transitioning from outdoor murals to gallery exhibitions, where their distinct blend of street art and contemporary aesthetics gained widespread recognition. Their work is infused with a sense of nostalgia, often featuring iconic figures from their early street art days, such as the “LADS,” a group of mustached, uniformed men resembling vintage police officers, portrayed engaging in humorous and often mischievous activities.
The duo’s unique artistic approach has led to collaborations with various artists, galleries, and brands around the world. Their bold and eye-catching artworks have graced cities across Europe, Asia, North America, and beyond, leaving an indelible mark on the global street art scene.
In a surprising and exciting turn of events, The London Police recently collaborated with Pepita Coffee, a specialty coffee company known for its commitment to promoting art and creativity. The collaboration brought together the distinct styles of both entities, resulting in a limited-edition collectible coffee tin adorned with exclusive London Police artwork.
