Guest Post: London Street Art Part II
London is privileged to possess some amazing street artists at the moment.
First up is Eine who recently made headlines when the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, presented a piece of his work to Barak Obama as an official state gift. Eine is best known for the vibrant typographical letters and words that have popped up all over East London over the past half of the decade.
Stik, one of London’s most prolific street artists at the moment, creates simple androgenous stick men that are nevertheless capable of conveying complex body language and emotion.
Tiny cement figurines have begun appearing on the streets of London. The street artist responsible is Isaac Cordal, who originally hails from Spain but is currently based in London. The project is termed ‘Cement Eclipses’ and deals with such themes as the anonymity and drudgery of city life.
Ronzo‘s street art is based on a future vision of a future post-apocalyptic London. His most famous work is ‘Crunchy’, a huge monster who surveys all of East London from up high.
Christiaan Nagel has also made his mark in London with his bright coloured mushrooms that have been sprouting all up all over the place.
In November we also saw some excellent pieces by David Walker.
Otto Schade is a Chilean street artist, currently based in London, with an intricate surrealist style.
Bortusk Leer‘s colourful monsters have also been popping up all over London
