Fanakapan's Star Yard London Mural

London street artist Fanakapan paints a mural in East London's Star Yard car park.

London based street artist and Horror crew member Fanakapan was among one of the standout artists for us in London last year.

Throughout 2015 the artist painted a number of murals honing his skills and mastering the art of creating lifelike 3D photo realistic looking metallic helium balloons on a 2D surface. From letters, numbers to 3D balloon animals the artist skills saw these works come to life on walls from London to Brooklyn.

Fanakapan's Star Yard London Mural

Fanakapan had previously painted a helium balloon mural in East London's Star Yard, a small car park located just off Brick Lane that has become popular with street artists and tourists alike.

His 3D Street art 'Star' mural pictured below in reverse also reads 'Rats' depending on how you read the work was perhaps one of the longest-running pieces in the every changing Star Yard and would have possibly run longer only for the artist himself chose to paint over the work with this new creation.

We were fortunate to catch Fanakapan at work while he was building up the layers of spray paint on the new mural, again keeping with the chrome effects we have seen in his previous helium works and once again pushing the effects further in this new piece.

Check out a selection of our photographs below from an afternoon watching the artist at work.

We caught up with Fanakapan earlier in the month while he was at work, sketching up the new mural in Star Yard off Brick Lane in East London.
