Wow it looks like January was the last time we posted a photographic round up of what's been grabbing our attention here at Hookedblog on the streets of East London. What with the unseasonably warm weather London has been having over the last few days our camera has been kept super busy as many artists appear to be venturing outside and back onto the streets, so here is our long over due selection of London Street Art.
Spanish based artist PEZ rocked into London over the weekend and has been hitting the streets with his iconic smiling fish characters which he has been adorning walls with since 1999. We have already featured the large wall PEZ wall completed in Hackney and we expect we will be seeing more from the artist in the coming weeks while he is in town.
East London street artist Sweet Toof has been hitting the streets hard recently with some large scale pieces as well as a number of collaborative shutters and walls with other artists. Yesterday saw Sweet Toof team up with Mr Nylon on the shutter piece pictured up top. He also dropped this colourfull piece above on Hackney Road with Mr.Penfold and Australian street artist Numskull. We have yet to grab some pictures but our friend and fellow photographer João Retorta caught up with Sweet Toof over the weekend and photographed some large scale roller action from the artist in Dalston alongside Mr.Nylon and Dscreet. Have a look here.
Mr. Hin Stencil artist Don has been very active since January with multiple pieces from the artist to be found around Redchurch Street, Hanbury Street as well as the Southbank skate park.
David Walker x SheOne collaborated on this mural earlier in the month an it can still be seen on Pedley Street, just off Brick Lane.
FinDAC painting one of his signature ladies on the very popular street art hotspot that is Hanbury Street just of East London's Brick Lane.
