It's been sometime since we caught up with the Israeli collective Broken Fingaz Crew, from what we have been seeing on the streets in and around Hackney Wick, crew member Unga appears to have passed through the Wick recently adding some smaller street pieces to area. Hailing from Haifa in Northern Israel, the collective was formed in 2001.
Unga and fellow crew member Deso have been in the UK the last few days working on a large commission piece in Manchester. With some time in London before they fly back to Israel the two artists took a stroll around Shoreditch yesterday afternoon looking for a spot to paint. Locating a spot on Red Church Street in East London the two artists set about creating a new mural that featured some of the Broken Fingaz crews signature styles, a combination of letters/ symbols, characters, and pattern work all brought together to give the finished mural an almost vintage sign look, like those often found in junk shops.
Their lastest creation is a little more family friendly, a PG rating if you will unlike some of there previous X-Rated Super Sex London murals. The first of the two included a naked woman with a panda (covered here) which raised some eyebrows among the local residents and another featured some acrobatic motorbike skeleton sex with another naked lady (covered here). Working late into the evening the duo managed to finish the mural last night, impressive considering the time scale they had and unlike the previous two murals mentioned which were both black and white pieces this one is a full colour mural. As to what the text reads we have no idea, perhaps one of our readers can help with that!
