Most of this stuff, unless otherwise stated is within quick walking distance from the very funky Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch. I didn’t go out of my way to find this stuff, it just happened to me and I guess that’s the joy of grafitti – or as this kind of quality stuff has become known – street art.
These are pretty much next door to a pub where they filmed a bit of ‘Luther’, there was a big piece being done while I was there to the left hand side of the picture below, but it wasn’t finsihed by the time I left – British weather stopped spray. Pretty sure now it was Martin Ron at work. The resulting image was of a London guardsman doing a one-handed handstand with his red coat hung up and his bearskin hat on, but it was only sketchy when I saw it.
and over the road:
Phlegm just had an installation at the Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch. Ben Eine collaborated with Louis Vuitton recently on a scarf design.
Thanks to JL for helping to attribute some artists to works.
