The Secret Society Of Super Villain Artists has made their presence wonderfully clear across the Liverpudlian Region, especially around the Prenton Area, which is the focus of this article.

The SSOSVA are not just contained to Liverpool City Centre, their presence and public knowledge spills into the City's suburban Boroughs. Their presence caught my eye with a sticker of their logo with an SSOSVA Emblem that I had not seen before. After doing some research online, I found that the Society call this emblem 'The Sons of The SSOSVA'. This is likely a reference to the television show Sons of Anarchy, which is further supported by an anarchy logo being present in the design. In an interview, Silent Bill, the founder of The Secret Society Of Super Villain Artists refers to street art and what they do as a sort of anarchy, as in many ways it goes against the rules of society and that they 'do not want to be told what to do'.

As seen in 'The Sons of The SSOSVA' Emblem, it features a more rugged circle of typography, with the traditional skull replaced by a Grim Reaper holding an anarchy ball in one hand and in the other an long handled paint brush where a traditional Reaper would normally hold a Scythe. Whilst the Society normally has various members, such as Silent Belle, change the emblem to their own specific calling card in the centre of the logo, I am led to believe that this particular SSOSVA Emblem represents all of the members or at least a portion/ faction of the members of the Society due to the plural nature of it. However, I may find something else out after more research into this incredibly
