Whoner first became interested in graffiti back in 1985, he started out as a ‘Street Tagger’ writing his name (tag) on walls. In 1990 when only just 14 years old he soon began experimenting with aerosol art and started to paint serious wall murals. Whoner was a main investigator to legalising ‘Ainsley Street’ (local) Graffiti wall, which was designated for street art by the council.
