JimmyC's Joe's Kid Mural on Fashion Street
Hookedblog last saw London based Australian street artist Jimmy C, aka James Cochran featured on the blog earlier this year when we stumbled across one of the artists classic street art murals in South London featuring music legend David Bowie (covered here).
Jimmy C is back in East London with a fresh new mural painted earlier this week with some help from Holmesfromthecrypt and Lollipop Gallery who helped hooked him up with the wall to paint. His latest mural pictured here is located on the side wall of independent coffee shop and cafe, Joe's Kid a recent addition to Fashion Street, just off Brick Lane. Painted in his signature pointillist / drip style, the work features a portrait of the cafe owner Danni when she was three years old along with her grandfather Joe, a cafe owner himself in 1930's in East London. Danni now carries on the family tradition with Joe's Kid Cafe.

We suggest checking out JimmyC's colour new work in person if you are in London, there are also some other great pieces further along this street worth checking too, you can just about see some work from Italian artist Hunto in the background and the latest shutter piece from Furia139 (covered here) is just around the corner. JimmyC's mural can be found at 50 Fashion Street and if you stop by make sure you visit Joe's Kid for some coffee and tasty cake!
