In a couple of years (1998- 2003) the duo created more than a thousand characters on the streets. And their characters nowadays even gain more success, spread worldwide.
They were part of a small group of artists at the end of the last century that helped pioneer a new street art movement.

As well as painting The London Police also enjoy making short films, photography, installations, and music.Their work has adorned buildings and galleries in more than 35 countries, like England, Holand, Singapore, Italy, Norway, Slovakia, USA, among others.
