Colombian street artist Stinkfish returns to London
Colombian Street Artist Stinkfish has been back in London over the last fews weeks in the run up to his first solo exhibition in London. We bumped into the artist last week on Bethnal Green Road while we were shooting New York artist Jordan Seiler at work who was also in town installing some work. Stinkfish tipped us off to one of new walls he had just completed in the area.
Located just off Hackney Road on Clare street, the first of two new London works from Stinkfish saw him collaborate with fellow Mexican artist Mazatl. The mural a mix of abstract freehand spray work along with some multi-layered stencils were used to build up the layers of colour and shapes in the creation of this signature street portrait work from Stinkfish. Having previously collaborated on a number of murals with Stinkfish, Mazatl using a black and white palette for this joint work has encircled Stinkfish's portrait of a young boy with a snake.
We last saw work from Stinkfish in London back in July of this year when he stopped in town and left us with two works both of which have since been painted over but you can see our pictures from this earlier visit here. For his second mural on this recent visit, the artist created the vibrant and energetic piece pictured below, located opposite the Pure Evil Department Store gallery space where Stinkfish's ‘Crossroad Portraits’ exhibition is taking place. Both murals are still on view should you find yourself in London.
Stinkfish's ‘Crossroad Portraits’ exhibition is now on until the 6th December at Pure Evil Gallery Department Store on Leonard Street, London. Nearest tube station: Old Street Station.
