Following on from his large-scale London mural, Distraction, Destruction and Power Tools painted back in November 2016 on the iconic Shoreditch Village Underground wall, London-based street artist Fanakapan revisits the East End to create some new London street art.


Chrome Balloon Graffiti Dog Mural by Fanakapan

Returning once again to the Seven Stars Yard car park, artist Fanakapan set to work on one of his signature 3D chrome balloon graffiti artworks painting over his own 'X' mural which has been up for a number of months now at the same location. 

For his new London street art piece, the artist has painted a 3D chrome-like balloon graffiti dog based on a miniature chrome sculpture that the artist owns. 

To ensure the reflections of his mural were accurate for its Seven Stars Yard location, Fanakapan placed the miniature dog sculpture in front of the Seven Stars Yard wall he intended to paint and photographed it in situ in advance.

Once photographed, scaled up, and printed out, Fanakapan was able to use this reference for his mural which has been completed entirely with spray paint. 

It is this level of detail that gives Fanakapan chrome graffiti balloon mural work the edge, the attention to detail that will go unnoticed to most who see the work both online and in person.

A photo of Fanakapan's reference photo for the mural, as we mentioned already this is a photo of a small chrome dog sculpture the artist photographed in advance in front of the wall he painted to ensure the chrome reflections were accurate and reflected the Seven Stars Yard Car Park behind the walls.
