Cement Eclipses- Small Interventions in the Big City.
Traveling between London and Brussels the spanish street artist has spent the last few years populating the city with his miniature concrete dwellers. Some of our eagle eyed readers may have encountered these 25cm figurines across East London on their travels. Often perched up high on walls, tops of bus shelters and ledges watching passers by below them, these figures are often so subtle that they are frequently missed but once spotted they bring a sense joy to those fortunate enough to stumble upon them. Unfortunately many people also feel the need to take the cement dwellers home with them once seen, with some only lasting hours in the street after being placed by the artist. Fortunately Isaac Cordal has been very thorough at documenting his placed urban interventions with the results complied for the first time in this new publication.
