A little later than we planned but we have put together a selection of our most liked photographs in February by those of you following us on our Hookedblog Instagram account. The month was busy with many street artists emerging from their studios after a long winter and taking to the streets with new works.

The end of February also saw us hit the big 10K, super amazing that we've now got 10,000 of the best Instagram followers! Thanks to everyone who is following and enjoying the content we share on this platform, it’s been a slow climb to this milestone number but we are happy that we have achieved this with quality content rather than taking shortcuts as so many other street art instagram accounts have done, using bots and apps to inflate their number count with fake followers - but that subject is a whole other blog post in itself.

February Selection

So back to our February selection, here you have it our second collection on the blog of the photographs our Instagram followers liked the most, as with our January collection the selection of images features a mix of new street art works as well as an older ROA piece which was a throw back Thursday #TBT post! The February selection features street art work by ROA(Previously on Hookedblog), Spanish street artist OKUDA (Previously on Hookedblog), Ant Carver (Previously on Hookedblog), Fanakapan (Previously on Hookedblog), Zombiesqueege and graffiti writer Mr.Cenz.

Let us know what your favourites photographs are from the selection below in the comments section below and be sure to head over and give us a follow on our Hookedblog Instagram if you are not doing so already. And don’t forget to show us some love and hit the heart button on your favourite pictures and help shape our March selection at the end of the month.

05 — ROA Hedgehog Mural on Chance Street, London. 

Painted back in 2012, this much loved Hedgehog mural by Belgian artist ROA (Previously on Hookedblog) on Chance Street has in the last few months seen the hedgehog legs lost to graffiti writers. Before this mural was even finished back in 2012 it was heavily photographed and has continued to be a popular mural with locals, tourists and the large volume of street art tours who wind their way around the streets of East London. As such this mural was always gonna be a target for taggers what with the black background of the mural and the volume of people taking pictures of this wall, but this is the nature of street art it is ephemeral and not meant to be permeant.
