Street Artist Shepard Fairey installs North London Mural

It's been just over a month since British street artist Banksy caused a stir with his Diamond Jubilee inspired piece of street art in Turnpike Lane, North London.

Now just a stone's throw from the Banksy's Diamond Jubilee stencil artwork another street art giant has hit the streets of Turnpike Lane. Friday saw US street artist Shephard Fairey aka OBEY in North London installing a new mural right next to the Turnpike Lane Underground station.

According to the Guardian newspaper, the mural was a commissioned piece installed without charge and organized by local resident James Straffon with the help of a London Gallery.

The "Envision Peace' mural pictured, is above a local corner shop and sees Fairey make use of an old disused Victorian placard.

The mural is part of a larger community regeneration program that is being carried out by the local Haringey council and is the second such project Fairey has worked on in the last week.

Before his stop in London, Fairey was in Paris working on another local community regeneration project but on a much larger scale. Our London friend and photographer Butterfly was in Paris and captured the action.

The mural work is located on 93 rue Jeanne d’Arc was painted onto a 14 story building, check the timelapse below of the Paris piece.


For those of you interested in seeing/photographing the Shepard Fairey London mural it is located on Langham Road next to the Turnpike Lane Underground Station in North London.
