Tuesday 06 August 2013 – Shoreditch, London.
Another week, another street art walk in Shoreditch. With the ever changing nature of street art it is always worth checking out what is happening around the streets of Shoreditch. With the street art blogosphere full of stories of new works being painted over the weekend Darryl and I agreed to meet up at Liverpool St and take a lunch time stroll.
I was really keen to check out four new panels from Alex Senna that went up while I was away last week. However, I was already too late, with all four panels blanked out and a new commissioned advert was being painted in their place, damnit. I love street art for its temporariness, but hate it for the same reason!
Darryl and I walked around for a couple of hour, checking out a few of the new pieces as I discovered a few works I had not seen before.
This new work from Vinie and ReaOne is really cool, I really liked the hair made out of their names.
On Blackall St I found a rarely closed shutter with an old Dscreet owl and some Sweet Toof teeth.
And a new mashup from phonebox artist D7606 collaborating with Ben Murphy.
I was really looking forward to seeing this wonderful work from Otto Schade.
Brazillian artist Cranio is back in town and has been pretty prolific, fixing up some old pieces as well as adding a few new ones.
Shok-1 has done a couple of his ‘x-ray’ style pieces, this is definitely my favourite, I would really like to watch one if these being painted as I am intruiged as to how he does it.
As you will know I am a big fan of the work of Jana and JS and had not seen these small stickers before, I have seen larger copies of both of these around Shoreditch and the kneeling Jana is one of my favourite pieces of all.
The more I look around the alleys and doorways of Shoreditch the more work by French artist C215 I find, often these are small pieces tucked out of the way, but they are always worth stopping to look at.
It was a good couple of hours out, I was bummed to have not see the Alex Senna panels, but I have read about some more of is work being completed over the past week so maybe I will get a chance to find some next time.
this was cool !
I have uploaded a bunch more to my Flickr stream.
