Princelet Street, Shoreditch

Graffiti and street art seen on Princelet Street, another small street in Shoreditch.

A wall covered by street art and graffiti of all kinds – paint, stencils and pasteups – by many different artists.   The children pointing their guns at the jester (pied piper?) is a painting by Otto Schade.  The Muslim woman and white man at Stik people by street artist Stik.   Three black and white posters, top middle, have slogans and pictures of people…. “Greed for oil causes war” features George W. Bush and Osama bin Laden.  “Consumerism causes child labour” features an Asian child and a Barbie like doll.  The third poster talks about debt dependence being addictive and shows a picture of the man from the Monopoly game.

Fashion Street, Shoreditch

The following pictures were taken in September 2016.   This was my second visit to the area and I have already blogged about my first visit in March 2016.  See ‘People of  Fashion Street’.  A few of the works from the spring still remained in September but there were also a number of changes.

endless street art

Or rather, the street art of endless.  Whenever I see, or think about, his street art, the song ‘Endless Love’ as sung by Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross comes into my head.  Not quite the vision that should be inspired by his work especially since a lot of his images involve weapons, big weapons.

below: No sign of guns in this one though… Queen Elizabeth with hard hat on, ready to work.

street art piece of head of Queen Elizabeth, wearing a hard hat with endless written on it, as well as a yellow scarf with Yves Saint Laurent logo on it.

Another image that endless uses a lot is a coke can.

A coke zero black can is turned into a can of spray paint in this street art paste up. Instead of coca cola it says end less
