London Street Art Vol 4 – Various Artists

This is the fourth and final instalment in this series of Street Art on the streets of London.  I took all the photos in the four posts that started with London Street Art – Various Artists during two days wandering around some old haunts.

I think I’ve left some of the best ’til last.

Paul ‘DON’ Smith

I first saw DON’s work in this post on Picturing England and was really pleased that I got to see it in person.

Mobstr

Mobstr has had a very strong year in 2012 and this piece has featured on all the most popular Street Art blogs and websites.

Christiaan Nagel

Christiaan Nagel‘s mushroom’s may be familiar to Berlin readers if you’ve been to Urban Spree in the RAW Tempel in Friedrichshain.  I can also see one of his creations on a building near the Kulturbrauerei from my balcony.

Code FC

Whilst I like this weightlifter by Code FC, I was really disappointed that I didn’t get to see the great Jana & JS piece you can just make out through the paint.

Mr. Fahrenheit

Mr. Fahrenheit has already featured in my London Street Art – Various Artists post but I couldn’t resist adding a couple more of his paste-ups here.

EVOL

Ironically, I had to go back to London to get my first look at some work by Berlin artist EVOL.  His Plattenbauten have been on my wish list for a long time and his Cardboard City project was all over the internet a while back.

London Street Art – Various Artists

An added bonus of a trip back to the UK to visit family and friends was an opportunity to walk the streets of East London taking photos of Street Art.

Street Artists have definitely been busy in London over the last year, especially in the lead-up to the Olympic Games, despite warnings from the authorities.

Where artists have appeared on the blog before through their work in Berlin I have linked back to the relevant posts, just click on the artist’s name.

Mr. Fahrenheit

It was great to see so much work by Mr. Fahrenheit (this isn’t all that I saw), much of which I had seen pictures of on Picturing England.  There’s quite a lot of his work on the streets of Berlin (some just metres from my flat) and I’ve been saving up photos to do a profile of the artist.

ROA

Giant Crane - Street Art by ROA in East London

This piece by ROA was the subject of an online petition and protest when the council covered it with a hoarding advertising Brick Lane as the ‘curry capital’.  Thankfully, the council saw sense and uncovered the piece when they realised the strength of the public outcry.

Birds - Street Art by ROA in East London

There are 2 birds in this ROA piece but new brickwork has been added and left significant gaps in the artwork.

CRISP

Yoda Protesting for the Occupy movement - Street Art by CRISP in East London

I saw so much great Street Art in a couple of days walking around London that I’ve had to split the photos I took into a number of posts, so expect some more London Street Art tomorrow and next week.
