Street Art: Our Most Liked Instagram Photos From April 2017



At the start of 2017 we began sharing a selection of our most liked street art instagram photographs here on the blog as part of a new monthly series on Hookedblog. Despite the platforms ever increasing numbers not all of you are fans or users of the popular photo sharing application. And as such we have been sharing a monthly selection of images as chosen by our instagram followers based on the most liked images from that month.


April Selection

We have been a little busy here than usual as we are already well into May but below is our April selection of photographs from our Hookedblog instagram. This months selection features works from street artists Hyuro, Alex Senna, Jaune (Previously on Hookedblog), Add Fuel (Previously on Hookedblog) and Ricky Lee Gordan.

05 — Hyuro 
The work of Spanish artist Hyuro aka Tamara Djurovic and painted for this year's edition of the Crystal Ship Festival in Ostend, Belgium. According to Hyuro, "This piece was inspired by the long-standing state in Belgium, an inconstant integral situation that lives every day to the limit of disintegration. Separated into two irreconcilable linguistic communities, with different cultures, along with old ethnic discords and other stories, are the basis of the crisis of this fragmented country. Researchers said that Belgium is the country that was the longest time without consolidating its own government, paradoxically, its capital Brussels is considered the European Union capital. It is said that if Belgium collapses, the European Union will follow its steps.

The image shows a person recomposing a broken pottery, it will be unthinkable to return it to its original state, neither to know how much it would be able to take once recomposed, not even how much it will be able to resist. Taking this from a more human perspective, this wall speaks about the fragility of life in all its aspects."
