Street Art 'MasterPeace' by Shok-1 in London
London based artist Shok-1 (Previously on Hookedblog) recently completed work on a new piece titled 'MasterPeace', which according to Shok-1 has been 'Painted in London in response to hostilities arising from the UK's EU referendum'.
The new work is located on Fournier Street, just off Brick Lane. This location has previously been painted by Shok-1 on a number of occasions over the years including his much loved 2013 'Hearts & Minds' Mural(Previously on Hookedblog) as well as a collaborative piece with Remi Rough(Previously on Hookedblog) back in 2012 titled “Communication Accommodation Theory”.
Having perfected this translucent technique with his 'X-Rainbow' series (Previously on Hookedblog here & here) his recent works have seen him strip back the vibrant colours to an almost single colour while still managing to create some phenomenal x-ray style works portraying human bones such as the human hand piece pictured here which is looking incredibly accurate to us. On closer inspection you begin to see some of the subtle colours Shok-1 has used in addition to the white spray paint to create these impressive pieces. Have a look at some of the close up shots below.
