Pablo Delgado — Miniature Street Art

Pablo Delgado — Miniature Street Art in Shoreditch, LondonThe last few months have seen the streets of East London populated with a whole series of miniature street art doorways installed at street level by a mystery artist.

Despite some initial confusion over the artists' name as to Pedro or Pablo, the work has now been credited to Mexican street artist Pablo Delgado. These tiny photocopied pasted-up doorways appeared to be hand colored and were at one point popping up around Shoreditch faster than people could photograph them.

"I started downloading images of doors from around the world and I worked with them and pasted them on to some walls," he says in this interview with The Guardian. "It began because I felt claustrophobic at home. I live in a small place and see doors as an exit to a different world. These little doors give you more space for your imagination, the chance to wonder what's behind them."

Miniature Street Art Scenes

In recent weeks the artist has continued installing miniature street artworks but has moved on from the little doors and has started creating tiny street art scenes featuring a collection of various characters, objects and animals from pimps to sex workers, Royal Guards to Jack The Ripper and a man walking a giraffe.

Again as with the doorways, these miniature street art pieces are all only inches high have been hand-colored and pasted up with the clever addition of matching shadows painted directly onto the pavement with black paint.

There is a great sense of fun to these street art pieces and they continue to bring a smile to our faces when we stumble upon a new one here in London.

Due to the ephemeral nature of wheat-pasted street art, many of the pieces featured in this post have been weathered and aged by the elements and for the most part, all that remains visible of the works are the painted shadows on the street. Check out some of the artists other street pieces in this second post on Pablo Delgado's London street artwork.
