Rolling Around Hackney Wick with SweetToof
On a recent visit to Hackney Wick it was apparent that London based artist Sweet Toof had returned from his travels in South America and had been hitting the streets in the area. We featured a number of theses new works only last week on the blog (covered here).
Returning for another visit to this East London neighbourhood it is evident that Sweet Toof is King is this part of town, from the street stickers to the drippy pavement teeth tags, murals and not to mention the large scale rooftop roller pieces immediately visible as you pull into Hackney Wick Train station, there would appear to be no surface that the artist has not redecorated. While strolling around Fish Island we discovered another series of new murals from the artist featuring his signature characters, rollers ready for some rooftop action no doubt. With an increasing number of the works going up in and around Shoreditch now painted on legal or managed walls it's refreshing to see that some street artists are still painting such large scale works illegally. Below are a selection of images of the two new pieces we discovered on our latest trip to the Wick.
