East London's Star Yard recently saw the return of London based artist Mr Cenz (Previously on Hookedblog). The artist has previously painted this wall on a number of occasion in the yard located just off Brick Lane, returning to give the wall a fresh coat of paint with a new piece of work. We try to regularly pop into the Star Yard if we are passing through Brick Lane checking in on new additions to the walls there and on one such occasion we found artist Mr Cenz midway through this new mural with a small gathering of people watching him at work.
Mr Cenz recent series of works sees the artist focuses on female faces, which are distorts in his signature style. The artist says he works from portrait as well as fashion photographs to "create unique interpretations, which are abstracted in a spontaneous and freestyle way to create interesting and mysterious compositions." These female portrait works draw on all the different influences and technical skills Mr Cenz has acquired over the years.

The completed Mr Cenz mural in the Star Yard, London.
As we were short on time that afternoon we only managed to catch a few images of the artist at work and planed to return at a later date to photograph the completed work. With winter sun casting shadows across the work on a subsequent visit a third trip to the Star Yard was needed to get a photo of the completed mural pictured above.
