Buenos Aires artist Mart Aire returns to London
Argentinian artist Mart Aire has been on a four month Europeon tour and returned to London this week before he heads home to South America. We last heard from the artist back in July when he stopped over in London en route to Blackpool for this years edition of the Sand Sea & Spray Street Art festival where he was invited to paint. His last London visit saw him taking some time to paint a number of murals in town, one at the Old Truman Brewery in East London (covered here) with help from our friends at Pigment London and a second mural in Camden in collaboration with fellow South American artist Onesto (covered here).
Hookedblog caught up with Mart yesterday at work on the second of two new murals he has already completed in London since his arrival. Returning to the Old Truman Brewery off Brick Lane, Mart finished work last night on his latest mural located along Dray Walk. The Old Truman Brewery is also the location for this years edition of the Moniker Art Fair 2015 which opens it's doors to the public on Thursday 15th October. Mart shared with us that he will be showing some of his canvas work at this years edition of the art fair with Pigment London who are presenting a collection of South American Artists in association with Dortmund gallery 44309 STREET//ART GALLERY.
The Moniker Art Fair launches this Thursday 15th October and will run over the weekend, closing it's door on Sunday evening the 18th October, tickets for the fair are available from the official Moniker Art Fairs website here. If you are in the area be sure and check out the new murals from Mart, the one above is located on Great Eastern Street* opposite the American carwash (*be quick if you want to see this one, as works on these hoarding don't last so long) and the second pictured below can be found on Dray Walk just off Brick Lane.
