London street art on Redchurch street by artist Malarky and Lucas

Last week saw London based artists Lucas and Malarky retake this huge wall located on Redchurch Street in East London with a fresh lick of paint and some new street art characters.

As reported by the guys over on London street art and graffiti blog, Graffoto, the last few weeks have seen a number of shutters and walls painted by these two artists tagged over by someone calling themselves Kamba. 

It seems Kamba is not too keen that these street artists are also showing work in galleries as well as on the streets and he has taken it upon himself to line them out as well as stenciling over the pieces with messages like “Street art is not for galleries” and “street art is not a business”!

We at Hookedblog are big fans of the duo's work so we were more than happy to see them return and reclaim this spot back. We look forward to seeing the other 'trashed' spots getting repainted over the coming weeks and who knows someone else other than these two may step up and paint the other spots.
