Montreal Street Artist, Stikki Peaches visits London
Montreal based street artist Stikki Peaches passed through London a few weeks ago en route back from Paris, France to Canada. The artist took the opportunity to hit up the streets of East London during his visit with a series of his large scale multi layered paste up works. Many of the installed works were collaged paste ups some of which featured collaborations with New York based street artist Dain who also uses collage to create his paste ups works.
Taking to the streets of the East End, Stikki Peaches installed a series of new works with help from London based 'Hidden Streets of London' who showed the artist around the neighbourhood. A number of the artists works were quickly removed/ torn down in the vicinity of Brick lane due to some of the collage content, many of which featured cuttings and images from vintage copies of Playboy magazine. We were luck to catch a large selection of the work before getting taken down, check out the series of works from the artist below.

As we have already mentioned a number of these works have already been removed but a few of those featured here are still up and those wanting to see them in person should hit up Fashion Street, Redchurch Street and Heneage Street to see the remain wheatpasted works.
