Woodseer, Shoreditch

Woodseer Street is one of the many little streets that runs off of Brick Lane.   In September 2016 I saw quite a few little stencils and paste ups here (with a few other things).

below: A large Plin face at the end of the street.

painting by street artist plin of a black and white face that is mostly mouth - a large rectangular mouth with a lot of little teeth, two eyes and only a small bit of black hair. On a brick wall by a sign (street sign) that says Woodseer St. E.1. It also has the name in arabic.

below: There was one mural on this street and this is it.  Unfortunately, the signature has been tagged over and is very difficult to read but I’m fairly certain that it says Bicicleta, a Brazilian artist.

below: There are so many people in his head, a paste-up.  At first I thought that it was by Motormannen but they are a music group, not an artist …. and if you look closely that’s actually a sticker that’s been placed on top of the poster.
