French Street Art Duo Kamlaurene Visit London

Shoreditch Street Art, French Street Art Duo Kamlaurene Paste-ups in London

Earlier last week while sat on the upper deck of the 149 bus heading up towards Dalston in East London we caught a glimpse of a tall figure on a brightly coloured door out of the corner of our eye as the bus sped up the street.

Later that evening we returning to investigate what we assumed would be a piece of street art and our curiosity was rewarded with a large hand paint paste-ups of a tall smartly dress figure sporting some fancy white shoes! As it was already dark we had to return the following morning to catch some daytime photos of the piece.

We had not seen this work up in London before and had no idea who was putting the paper works up on the walls. While shooting this piece we spotted a series of small letters along the figures shoe which read ‘Kamlaurene’.

Assuming this was the artist's name we punched in into the search box on Instagram and quickly found the artists profile. Our search revealed that Kamlaurene was in fact not one but two artists, a French duo who appeared to have just visited the city and had installing multiple works across East London.

Kamlaurene In London

With a bit of detective work and a few hours walking the streets of Shoreditch and Brick Lane, we managed to locate and photograph some of the new large-scale works installed by the French Street Artists.

Unfortunately, a number had already been removed when we tracked down some of the other locations, either painted over or removed completely by the building owners or the council.

We believe the duo are already planning a return visit to London and we look forward to their next trip to the city and discovering more of their large scale hand-painted works.

Check out our selection of images below photographed over the weekend.
