Paul Insect & Sweet Toof's Elusive Box Truck
A one time regular fixture alongside the Whitechapel Market stretch of road in East London, the White Box trucks of the market traders were once decorated on all sides with vibrant works by various street and graffiti artists. Now a rare sight these days following regulation changes in Transport For London's Low Emission Zone (LEZ), which saw many of these moving canvases disappear from the streets as traders replaced their trucks to comply with the emission standards set within the zone which covers most of Greater London. We have previous featured some of these box trucks and vans on Hookedblog over the years some of which included works from Malarky (covered here) Mr Penfold, Billy(covered here), Roids(covered here), Horfe and Panik among others.
Back in December we spotted this Box Truck late one evening featuring work from London artists Sweet Toof and Paul Insect. From what we can tell it was painted sometime late last year but it was the first time we had seen it in person and as it was late we only managing to capture a low light noisy iPhone photo. We have been on the look out since for this moving canvas in efforts to capture some better shots of the work but as these trucks tend to move about it was only yesterday we came across this Box Truck again, four months after we first captured it with our iPhone. have a look at the images before and click trough on some of the links above to see some of the earlier box truck works.
