New York street artist City Kitty Hits the Streets of London

New York based street artist City Kitty recently passed trough London taking to the streets with a series of new works. The artist has been actively working on the streets for over six years mostly in the boroughs of New York and more recently appearing in cities across the United States and Europe.

This is not the first time we have seen City Kitty’s work up on walls here in East London with a series of works appearing earlier this years in the city some of which saw him collaborate with a number of other street artists including UK street artist D7606 and recently Barcelona street artist Bàlu on the Ghostbuster's inspired piece pictured below. Alongside his collaborative pieces installed on this visit we have also discovered a number of his series of one off hand painted large wheatpasted posters and stickers nearly all featuring his cat characters that he has now become well known for.
