French female street artist Annabelle Tattu hits the streets of London
French female street artist Annabelle Tattu re-visited London last month leaving a series of new works across East London. We have previously seen some of the multidisciplinary artist's unique pasteup works which caught our eye around Shoreditch. With printed/photocopied street art pasteups all to common in London and beyond it is refreshing to see a series of hand drawn works from Tattu with no to pasteups alike in the new series.
According to Tattu, her dreamlike and fantastic universe is built from the dialogue that she establishes with her characters. She gives them life, creating their stories, multiplies and transforms, while they invade her mind and her space; formed of impulsive traits they seem like their own guide.
She continues to say that, "each work, drawing or painting, combines attention to detail, spontaneity of the line, gaiety and brightness of colors to express her emotions without restraint. Her oeuvre, unmatched in the urban art scene, brings new energy, sensitivity and poetry to a current scene still dominated by men"
Below are a selection of Annabelle's works we discovered from this visit.
We could be mistaken but this character on the TV looks a lot like British sitcom character Mr.Bean!
