Close up detail of Street Artist Ant Carver's Vibrant work.

With fashion week in full swing it would appear the catwalks are not the only place you’ll find models looking back at you, the walls of East London recently saw two new street artworks installed featuring Jourdan Dunn and Amina Blue.


Vibrant Portraits by Street Artist Ant Carver 

The two new hand-painted wheat-pasted posters are the work of Hackney Wick based street artist Ant Caver (Previously on Hookedblog) who recently returned to the Brick Lane neighborhood and installed the posters. 

Ant Carver has been pasting works along the Bishopsgate Goods Yard Wall that run from Shoreditch Overground train station, along Sclater Street down to Brick Lane for some time now.

Battling for space with the flyposter companies who have plastered large parts of the wall, we were pretty surprised to see that two of his previously installed works are still visible on this wall, both of which have now been up for long enough that the works have begun to change as the elements begin to breakdown and weather the paper the works are painted on. 

We love seeing street works like these that have stayed up long enough for the process to happen, which you can see in some of the pictures below.

One of Ant Carver's older works installed last year that has begun to age and weathered with the elements.

The new pieces see Ant Carver continue with his ongoing series of striking monochromatic portraits with layers of bright abstract elements that are painted over the image. 

And as with some of the artists, other works such as this Inka Williams portrait mural previously painted on Commercial street, these pieces see him once again use the work of fashion photographers as reference for the paste-ups.
