    Goldie was born Clifford Price to a Scottish-Jamaican couple and put up for adoption. He was brought up in a number of care homes and by several sets of foster parents which developed a sense of self-reliance. During the 1980s he became fascinated with the growing hip-hop culture, and became skilled at both break dancing and graffiti art. By 1986, he was involved with breakdancing crews around his home of Woverhampton and made several trips to London for all-day breakdancing events. His artwork around Birmingham and Wolverhampton featured heavily in Afrikaa Bambaataa’s feature film documentary Bombing which was broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK.

    Goldie was one of the seminal figures in the drum and bass subculture, and one of its first celebrities. His landmark album Timeless went straight into the album charts at number seven, and the song, Inner City Life became the anthem for 1995.

    The present works were originally commissioned by an insurance company to screen-off some interior building work. A parent of a student at Camden School for Girls donated them to the school to be sold for fundraising purposes. The present owner acquired them from the school in 1998.
