New Street Art

 

IMG_8839As a street art blogger, other than finding graffiti and writing about it, it doesn’t get much better than reading a decent book on the subject too. This week I received a press release copy of a must-have new book called New Street Art, and it’s the bible for any graffiti enthusiast. 

The book, set for release in May this year, is Written by Claude Crommelin (aka Claudelondon) and it’s pretty much an A-Z of London street art by artists old and new (150 in total, including some stunning photography).

Claude has been dubbed the ‘David Attenborough of street art’ and he’s been documenting the London street art scene since 2008, after moving to the UK from The Netherlands. As a professional photographer, he’s seen his contemporary artworks in the likes of Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Centraal Museum Utrecht and Boymans van Beuiningen in Rotterdam.

This book showcases some of the best street art in London, by the world’s top artists. It shows us the incredible passion Claude has for street art. He’s made a name for himself along the way and is recognised by many as been ‘the first on the scene when anything new arrives’.

New Street Art provides a great insight into the world of graffiti and includes the work of 150 street artists on the scene today, making it an essential book for your street art collection.

Artists included in the book in no particular order are Banksy, Invader, ROA, Stik, Dscreet, Otto Schade, VHILS, C215, Jimmy C, Dan Kitchener, Mr Fahrenheit and more.

Street art daily: day twelve

Invader was here

One of my favourite street artists is the one and only Parisian artist, Invader. Like Banksy his identity is kept secret and only a select few know who the man behind the retro-game-inspired work actually is.

His unique mosaic street art can be found all over the world and I’ve been lucky to see some of his amazing work in Paris and London… so far. To make finding his work even more fun he created a smartphone app: flash invaders! You get points for each piece you find and the app uses your location to tell you which you found. It’s pretty clever and makes finding his work even more addictive.

His work can be found in the last places you would expect. For example, on a recent trip to Paris we went to see the Sacre Coeur and as we left this iconic French piece of architecture we spotted work by Invader on a house just opposite the landmark. So always be on the look out. Look up, instead of checking Twitter.

Here’s some of my favourite Invader pieces to date:

Invader-1

Invader work just opposite the Sacre Coeur!

Invader2

Brick Lane: This piece is slightly damaged but still remains on the famous East London street.

Invader-3

One of my favourite Invader pieces. This tribute to Star Wars can be found just off Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch behind the American Car Wash.

Invader4

Can you see it? This piece blends in pretty well with the grey wall but you can see it’s red eyes staring back at you. This Invader is in the Belleville area in Paris.

Invader6

Real or copycat Invader? Certainly looks like the real deal however we were told there are a few Invader copycats in Paris. If only I had the Flash Invader app on my iPhone at the time!

Invader7

More Invader work in Paris

Invader8

This Invader piece is in Brixton, just above Shaza’s Fried Chicken joint!

Invader9

A huge Invader piece in Shoreditch, just off Brick Lane. It’s nicely placed next to a huge mural by OBEY.

Invader5

This must have been his 100th invasion of London, as this Invader is accompanied with the number ‘100’. Again didn’t check it on my app, but I will! This one can be found on Broadway Market, just opposite the Cat and Mutton pub.

Invader10

This little Invader piece can be found in between Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Circus.

How many Invader pieces have you found, and which is your favourite?

STREET ART SKULLS

Everyone loves a skull, right? Whether you’re an artist, a tattooist or a bit of an alternative – skulls are very much anti-establishment and against the mainstream.

They look just as good as a tattoo as they do on the wall of a building. With that in mind, here are some of my favourite street art skulls:

SKULL-6

Skull by Alexis Diaz – just off Brick Lane – a few minutes from the Cereal Killer Cafe!

SKULL5

Work by #EDMX in Camden

SKULL4

Another piece by Alexis Diaz, this time with the help of Borondo.

Street art daily: day three

Mixing of styles

Today I’m going to take a look back at the ‘Mixing of Styles 2015’ that happened in Shoreditch on Saturday 11th July. 

My weekends usually consist of wondering around East London, drinking a flat white here, eating a bagel there (or should I say ‘beigel’) and generally doing things that you should do in the hipster capital of London. So unsurprisingly, my afternoon stroll lead me to Shoreditch and the home of lots and lots of graffiti.

As I was walking down Redchurch Street (home to an incredible mural by Jim Vision) a friendly guy handed out a flyer for an event happening in the Nomadic Community Gardens just off Brick Lane. I’ve been there a few times and for those of you who don’t know about it, it’s a park area (next to the overground line) that’s currently been transformed into a street art haven. The gardens will be developed into property in the near future, so in the meantime it’s currently a creative space for artists to do their thing.

Luckily for me, as I was on a street art hunt anyway I decided to go and check it out. I made sure I treated myself to a famous Brick Lane salt beef beigel first, obviously.

The weather was amazing and Shoreditch was absolutely buzzing on Saturday. There was street art going up all over the place, and the crowds were watching, instagramming and basking in the glorious summer sun.

Some of the top street artists around could be spotted at the Nomadic Community Gardens including the likes of Jim Vision, Dan Chase, Trafik and the Lost Souls Crew. It was an exhibition of urban art and the artists all came together for a true mixing of styles.

Cheap food and beer was on offer (£2 a pint – in London!) and there was a really cool vibe, everyone was friendly and there to appreciate one thing – art. Graffiti and creativity was happening all around, from artists collaborating on a cherry picker spraying a huge mural, to artists painting on vans to… well one guy constructing an unbelievable sculpture out of wood that he found on the floor – respect.

In action: fresh graffiti going up on a wall next to what used to be All Press on Redchurch Street.

Street art daily: day one

I’ve got hundreds upon hundreds of pictures of street art on my MacBook so I thought it’d be a good idea to share one piece every day this week. Some of the pieces are now long gone, while others are still standing.

Unless you’re Banksy and your work is protected by plexiglass it can be difficult for it to truly stand the test of time, or survive being tagged over by another artist. Over the past few years I’ve found some unbelievable urban art in places like Shoreditch, Camden, Bristol, Paris and Berlin.

I’ll start this post with this piece by Jimmy C. His unique style of ‘drip painting’ is very distinct and his work fuses fine art with a spray can and the results are jaw dropping. So here’s a big shout out to Jimmy C and his impeccable talent.

There’s three pieces by Jimmy on Whitby Street in Shoreditch and it’s hard not to love this one…

From Jack the Ripper to street art central

Brick-Lane-

It’s been a few weeks since my last blog post so I thought I’d write something short and sweet about some of my favourite urban art pieces to have graced east London’s Hanbury Street.

Hanbury Street, just off the one and only Brick Lane, is currently home to some incredible street art. Many of the world’s greatest artists ply their trade around the streets of Shoreditch, including the likes of Invader, OBEY, ROA and Banksy, to name but a few.

Back in the day

Over 100 years ago, Jack the Ripper murdered his second victim, Annie Chapman, behind 29 Hanbury Street. He brutally slashed her throat, ripped open her abdomen and removed her uterus. Pretty gruesome, right?

The only thing that remains from the horrific days of 1888 is the stunning architecture around Spitalfields like Christ Church, which opened in the 1730s, and the beautiful old houses.

That’s enough history for one blog post. I’m here to talk about some of my favourite street art to appear on the infamous graffiti wall on Hanbury Street. This wall can be found just before Blitz Vintage and it’s on the same side of the street as the huge ‘crane’ piece by Belgian street artist ROA.

Two staple pieces of street art on Hanbury St. The left is a stunning piece by Argentinian, Martin Ron, and on the right is ROA's 'crane'.

Here are some the best pieces of urban art to appear on the vibrant and colourful Hanbury Street. Enjoy.

This is probably my favourite all time street art in London. It's such an incredible piece by Alexis Diaz.

This is probably my all time favourite piece of street art in London. It’s such an incredible piece combining an elephant with an octopus. Work by Alexis Diaz.

Another fantastic spectacle to appear on Hanbury St, was this piece by Aussie artist, RONE.

And that’s a round up of a few of my favourite murals on Hanbury Street. It’s a unique street in the heart of hipster Shoreditch. The scenery is always changing and you’re guaranteed to find some London’s best street art in this area.

Banksy hunting in LDN

If graffiti changed anything

‘If graffiti changed anything it would be illegal…’

The infamous Banksy has put his mark on the world with his unique and incredible street art style. Not only does he create amazing pieces of urban art, his work also reflects the state of our society. His messages are powerful and full of meaning, and we should be honoured that this legend’s graffiti is still around for us to see… for free.

The rich and famous pay millions for a Banksy but I think there’s something more special about going seeing his work on the streets as it was meant to be seen.

London, one of the greatest places in the world, is home to some fine Banksy street art. Over the years much of his work has been tagged over, taken down, or taken away by those that want to make a quick buck.

Luckily plexiglass has saved some of Banksy’s most iconic pieces and you can still find his urban art in areas like Shoreditch, Stoke Newington, and Notting Hill. And to save you from trying to find Banksy’s that no longer exist,  I’ll show you which ones are worth your while.

Shoreditch 

There’s no better place to start Banksy hunting than in east London. Not only will you find a few pieces by the famous Bristolian, there’s also a lot of amazing street art by some of the best in the business.

Less than 10 minutes from Shoreditch High Street overground station you’ll find a couple of perfectly preserved Banksy pieces. Head to Rivington Street (EC2A 3AY) and in the garden area of nightclub ‘Cargo’ you’ll find not one, but two Banky’s.

Nearest tube: Old Street or Shoreditch High Street (overground) 

This piece is aptly named ‘Prison Guard Poodle’ was added to the wall in 2003 and it’s still in good condition today.

Rivington Street1

Also in Cargo’s garden area is this piece named ‘HMV Dog’. I didn’t actually realise this Banksy was in the same place as the one above until a while after – so don’t make the same mistake I did.

Rivington Street 2

Bethnal Green

Staying east and about a 20 minute walk away from Rivington Street, you’ll find Banksy’s ‘Flower Painter’ on Pollard Street (E2 6LR). This piece was added onto the side of a private property in 2007 just two weeks after Hackney Council said they would remove any Banksy work on council houses. They couldn’t do anything about this one though.

Though the ‘flower painter’ himself is now badly damaged and there’s quite a lot of tagging on the wall; the flower is still looking good and it’s definitely one to visit.

Nearest tube: Bethnal Green 

Banksy Flower

Stoke Newington

Stoke Newington is another cool place that lies in the borough of hipster Hackney. Even if you’re not fussed about graffiti hunting, Stoke Newington is a place that won’t disappoint.

And if you want to find a Banksy head to Church Street (N16 9ET) to find his 2001 piece ‘Clown House’. Now almost covered in black paint there’s not much left left to see, however you can still see the ‘clown’ royal family.

Nearest tube: Stoke Newington (overground)   

Bansky Clown House

Poplar

Hidden away in east London’s Poplar is a piece not as common with Banksy enthusiasts entitled ‘Phone Tap’. This piece can be found in a small car park behind a set of flats on Chrisp Street (E14 OEA), just two minutes away from All Saints DLR station. In this area you’ll also get some stunning views of Canary Wharf.

This is one of my favourite Banksy pieces to date. No one’s tried to steal it or tag over it and it’s not even covered in plexiglass (though last time I saw this piece was September 2014).

The caption reads ‘oh no, my tap’s been phoned’, perhaps this Banksy piece was a take on the phone hacking scandals that were all over the media in 2011. Anyway it’s a classic piece and worth the trek.

Nearest tube: All Saints (DLR)

Phone Tap

Islington 

A short walk down from Angel tube station you’ll find Banksy’s ‘Very Little Helps’ on Essex Road (N1 8NE). This piece has been covered in plexiglass, however it isn’t in the greatest condition. Silver spray paint has ruined some of it, and the Tesco carrier bag has been tagged over by Team Robbo. Still, it’s a good example of Banksy’s stencil style and the rivalry that existed between the graffiti legends. RIP ROBBO.

Nearest tube: Angel 

Tesco Bag

There’s another two Banksy pieces to be found in the borough of Islington and both are only a few minutes walk away from each other. Farringdon Road (EC1R 4SQ) is the place go to, though neither of the pieces are in the best condition, so it might only be worthwhile trip for the most hardened of Banksy lovers. The piece called ‘Cash Machine Girl’ is covered in plexiglass but has been all-but ruined by white paint.

There’s a Banksy rat that’s still visible though…

Nearest tube: Farringdon

Cash Machine Girl Farringdon Road 1

Barbican 

Moving towards central London the Banksy’s are pretty spread out so it’s worth planning your route before heading out on a day of Banksy hunting. In Barbican you can still find another one of his famous rats knocking around. Some of the Banksy rats I found had weathered pretty badly and you could only just make out their outlines. This one on the other hand, on Chiswell Street (EC1Y), is still in good condition and is another piece to receive a ‘team Robbo’ tag.

Nearest tube: Moorgate or Barbican 

Barbican Rat

Not too fat from the Banksy rat, on the corner of Golden Lane, you can find Banksy’s latest work. The new graff is in homage to Jean-Michel Basquiat, an American artist (and an inspirational figure in the NYC art scene) whose work is currently on exhibition in the Barbican.

IMG_9022IMG_9031

Central 

In central London there’s a couple of Banksy’s that lovers of this graffiti legend will surely appreciate. If you can make it through the chaos that is central London – avoiding oncoming tourists and shopaholics – you should be just about able to find these masterpieces.

The first is on piece is on Tottenham Court Road (W1T 5AN) and is one of few ‘Banksy’ stencils left in London. This stencil has been on the lamp post over 12 years now and is still nicely visible today.

Nearest tube: Euston Square or Warren Street

Stencil

The next and more recent (2011) Banksy piece is about a 10 minute walk away from the stencil on Tottenham Court Road on Clipstone Street (W1W 5D1) just opposite the Tower Tavern. It’s protected by plexiglass but it’s receiving more and more unwanted tags.

If graffiti changed anything

Another one of my favourite Banksy pieces ‘Shop til you drop’ is minutes away from the capitalist, consumer-based high streets like Oxford Street and Regent’s Street. You’ve got to love the irony behind his work.

This Banksy is just high enough from ground level to avoid any tagging or damage and it’s still in near perfect condition today. ‘Shop til you drop’ can be found on Bruton Lane (W1J 6PT).

Nearest tube: Bond Street or Oxford Circus

Shop til you drop

Notting Hill 

Next up jump on the central line and head towards Notting Hill Gate and the posh end of town. Beautiful white buildings fill the streets, as do luxurious cars. The Banksy piece in Notting Hill is located on Portobello Road (W11 2DY).

Portobello Road is a pretty cool place and has markets every weekend. The smell of weed runs rife through the air and you might think it looks more like Brick Lane than Notting Hill. The weekend stalls sell everything from vintage clothes,  fresh fruit and veg, jewellery, street food, antiques, vintage furniture and all that sort of thing. There’s some decent pubs, independent coffee shops, too. There’s even a few shops selling Banksy canvases and memorabilia.

You don’t see much street art in the west end but there’s a few pieces down Portobello Road and the streets nearby.

Anyway, at the bottom of this famous street is another timeless Banksy piece, ‘Master Artist’. Again it’s protected by plexiglass and it’s pretty much in perfect condition. This piece was added to the wall in 2007 and was almost very short lived with the owners of the building putting the wall up for sale on eBay. The bidding war reached over £208,000 but the owners finally pulled the plug on the auction due to a public outcry. When they do come to selling the property I’m sure it’ll add a few extra zeros on the price tag, so I’m sure they’re not too upset.

Nearest tube: Notting Hill Gate

Portobello Banksy

Southwark 

The final Banksy I’m going to talk about is in south London and not too far from the tallest building in western Europe, The Shard. This piece dates back to 2010 and is situated on the side of a café on The Grange (SE1 3AD) just off Grange Road.

This Banksy, inspired by artist Keith Haring’s ‘Barking Dog’, has been preserved under the life-saving plexiglass and remains in excellent condition today.

While you’re in the area I highly recommend taking a trip to Borough Market and sampling a bacon sandwich from ‘Roast to Go’. Best I’ve ever had.

Nearest tube: London Bridge or Bermondsey  

Kieth Haring Dog

There’ll always be more Banksy hunting to be done and there’s still more pieces I want to find in London, Bristol and the rest of the world. It’s a great feeling to be standing in the presence of street art done by the Picasso of graffiti, to see something that art collectors would pay hundreds of thousands of pounds for, and to see his work on the streets of London in such Instagrammable condition. Thanks Banksy.

To get you in the mood for some Banksy hunting I recommend watching: Exit through the gift shop, Banksy does New York and Channel 4’s documentary about King Robbo and Banksy, Graffiti Wars.

Before I leave please let me know if I’ve missed any Banksy pieces in London and as always, graffiti lovers & artists, add comments, share your favourite Banksy’s, and any info I’ve missed.

Shoreditch street art: Part 1

Jimmy C Shoredtich

East London is quite possibly one of the coolest places in the country and it’s definitely the best place to see some of London’s best street art –  by some of the biggest artists in the graffiti scene. As soon as you exit Shoreditch High Street station there’s a huge piece by OBEY aka Shepard Fairey, which pretty much sets the scene for what’s to come.

You could easily spend the day graffiti hunting around Shoreditch and the street art is really easy to find. As I said, just opposite Shoreditch overground station you’ll find OBEY. A walk further up and you’ll find Redchurch Street (which I mentioned in my previous post). This area is full of some mighty fine urban art. Each street around this area is worth investigating and before you know it you’ll come across a massive piece by ROA and some incredible work by Jimmy C.

OBEY Shoreditch

OBEY piece in Shoreditch. You can find it just opposite Box Park.

ROA Shoreditch

Work by ROA. This piece is also just opposite Shoreditch High Street station.

Coloured wall Shoredtich

This wall on Chance Street reminds me a lot of Nelson Street in Bristol.

Just off Chance Street you’ll find Whitby Street. This is the place to find some signature work by the man himself, Jimmy C. His unique style is easy to spot and his work makes graffiti hunting all the more worth while. From Whitby Street you’re only a stones throw away from the famous Brick Lane. If you can prize yourself away from beigel shops, eating cereal and curry, then there’s some outstanding street art to find too.

Jimmy C Shoreditch2

Work by Jimmy C on Whitby Street

Jimmy C

Another Jimmy C piece just next to the one above…

There’s not much graffiti to see on Brick Lane itself, it’s all on the side streets so keep your eyes peeled at all times! Each back street and alley off Brick Lane is worth a look down as you’ll uncover more and more spectacular works of art.

One of my personal favourites is Hanbury Street, it’s about half way down Brick Lane and can be found just after the Truman Brewery (or before – depending on which way you walk up the street). Not only is this street home to Europe’s biggest vintage shop ‘Blitz’, as well as being the place the Ripper murdered Annie Chapman, it’s also street art heaven. ROA’s big bird being one of the iconic works of art standing high on the side of one of the buildings.

ROA Hanbury Street

Street art heaven on Hanbury Street. ROA’s big bird amongst others.

Hanbury St

One of my favourite pieces of graffiti, sadly this work is no longer on Hanbury Street.

Hanbury Street 2

Work by RONE.

Hanbury Street 3

Incredible art by Snikarts.

Hanbury Street

Another amazing work of art that’s no longer there.

As there’s so much incredible graffiti in east London, it’s impossible to cover it all in one post. There’s still more to cover on Brick Lane and the surrounding hipster area that is Shoreditch.

In the coming months there’ll be more posts about London’s fine street art, including Banksy’s that you can still find in the capital, as well as some inspiring works of art in Berlin and Paris too… and wherever else I come across this amazing form of free art!

Graffiti lovers & artists, please add comments, share your favourite pieces in London, and add any info I’ve missed.

Welcome to London

Shoreditch At the back end of 2013, after work had taken me from Leeds to India, then down to Bristol for a few months, I started working in one of the greatest cities in the world – London. Ever since I was a young lad I’ve wanted to live in the big smoke, so to finally do so was a cliché come true. One of the greatest things about London is that there’s always something to do. You can never get bored in foggy London Town. There’s the markets, the museums, the shops, the sights, the food, the pubs, the culture, the views, the nightlife – oh, and some pretty amazing street art too, done by the likes of Banksy, Invader, Stik, Obey (aka Shepard Fairey), Theirry Noir, Jimmy C, Otto Shade, ROA, Jim Vision and many, many more top artists. East London I’m going to start on Redchurch Street in Shoreditch. It’s the place where I fell in love with street art in London, and it reminded me very much of Nelson Street in Bristol. It’s so colourful and vibrant and it just creates an atmosphere that’s is difficult to explain. Shoreditch is the place to see lots and lots of street art and is probably one of the best areas in London to visit. Redchurch Street is just up the road from Shoreditch High Street station and it’s a good place to start your graffiti sight seeing. It’s also 30 seconds away from the top of Brick Lane, so I recommend grabbing your self a famous salt beef beigel first. And yes they do call spell it ‘beigel’ for some reason. On Redchurch Street you’ve also got Allpress Espresso who roast up some pretty decent brews, that’s another place to visit while you’re in the area. The graffiti is forever changing in east London, some work can be there for months, whereas others are gone in days or weeks. I like it though, it means no matter how many times you take a walk around the streets of the east end it’s always different and has a new story to tell. Some of the pieces in this post and future posts are no longer there, but that’s the life of the world of street art. Anyway, here’s some of my favourite pieces (past and present) of urban art on Redchurch Street:

Jim Vision redchurch st

Work by Jim Vision.

Stik shoreditch

Stik! See how many times you can spot this guy in London.

Tag Redchurch st

Not sure who this tag is by, but it’s one of my favourites.

Redchurch Street – the place for huge pieces of street art. It once was – this wall has pretty much been replaced by shop fronts now. 

Mural redchurch st

This wall on Redchurch Street has played host to some incredible murals like this one by Jim Vision.

Mural 4 Redchurch st

Mural 3 redchurch st

Fresh graffiti, again another one by Jim Vision.

Mural 2 rechurch st

Again, another amazing piece of work that left without a trace.

As you can see, there’s some impressive work on Redchurch Street and it continues to change and evolve over time. It’s a great place for any lover of urban art to start their graffiti hunting, and you’re right in the centre of the hipster capital that is east London. There’s plenty to do and a shit load of street art to find. Shoreditch will not disappoint.
