There is a lot of street art and graffiti in Shoreditch and one of the streets where it is plentiful is Brick Lane. There is much more than be covered in one blog post. What follows is a selection of the street art that I saw in that area back in March. I’ve tried to find the artist as often as possible… but it’s not always possible!
below: Four people, quadruplets, standing at attention with eyes forward, on a wall.
below: Letters pasted on a wall, “Expand your comfort zone” but with D, U and Z missing.
A couple of faces looking on.
below: Posters by agheras73 aka Arturo Garcia de las Heras
below: On the left is a woman in profile by Irish artist Iljin.
below: Blue head, red head, @ne_illustration aka Nathan Evans.
below: Love, love bunny-ish paste up and love on polka dots.
below: “This being human is a guest house.”
below: He stands guard by the door while she watches the passersby.
below: A likeness of Frida Kahlo sitting cross legged with her hands in her lap, a few scribbles by Elsie and a paste up of Lt. Vincent and his cat – his red, white and blue character is seen running all over Shoreditch.
below: What do a plastic toy helicopter and airplane, a scrunched up foil wrapper, part of a German cigarette package (rauchen mindert ihre fruchtbarkeit = smoking reduces fertility), a pink pencil and a picture of what looks like Richard Nixon (who is it?) have to do with each other? Not sure, you’ll have to ask artist Mr. Fahrenheit. He’s the maker of the art with U R so Porno Baby.
below: Queen Elizabeth over and over again (also the work of Mr. Fahrenheit), along with Pinch Rio whoever he may be. Do the numbers on the poster have any significance? The bottom line is a date but the others are a mystery.
