Glorious Walthamstow Mural by Italian Street Artist RUN

It's been some time since we caught with Italian street artist Giacomo Bufarini aka RUN. The one time London based artist has recently moved back to Italy but has been working on a number of projects here in London since the beginning of summer.

We were unfortunately out of the country ourselves and missed the artist while he was at work on one of these projects which saw him redecorating the entire side of a Church in Peckham with a huge mural featuring his work. We have yet to see this piece in person but if you have not already seen it check out RUN's instagram.

Last week Hookedblog heard street artist RUN was back in town from a festival in Lebanon. Hookedblog jump on an overground train and headed further east to Walthamstow to take some photographs of the street artist making a start on his latest London project with Woodstreet Walls - a gable end mural on a property located next to The William Morris Gallery. 

Working over a number of days we caught some action shots of the street artist at work while the mural was in progress, returning again over the weekend for a second visit to shoot the completed mural.

Featuring a lone character in RUN's signature style painted with a striking colour palette, he has taken into consideration the building shape it's painted on. 

RUN has designed the piece for the location making use of the building shape and the chimney stack which has been incorporated to form part of the trumpet the character is playing.

He has also made use of the a wall's gable end transforming the triangular shape into the character's red hat. 

Have a look at some of our progress shots below along with images of the finished mural and should you find yourself in Walthamstow you can view the mural in person on Pearl Road, Walthamstow, London.
