Street Artist Donk's large London street art portraits paste-ups

London street artist Donk is no stranger to the streets of London, the artist's works have been part of the East London street art landscape for many years now from the small-scale wheat-pasted posters to the epic one-off large-scale paste-up works such as his Higher Ground' piece in Hackney Wick.

Combining his love of photography and screen printing, the artist's hand-printed photographic artworks can be seen around Shoreditch, Camden, Soho, and Brick Lane.

Artist Donk's London Street Art

For his most recent London installation, paste-up artist Donk has supersized a series of street portraits of strangers he photographed around Brick Lane earlier in the year. Scaling tight crops of their faces up in size, the artist then wheat-pasted the printed posters of the strangers back up onto a wall close to Brick Lane.

The new series of photographic portraits have been pasted to the same wall as one of the artists' other portrait pieces, his Rudeboy black and white portrait installed back in 2016 and an artwork that is still running.  The entire series of new portrait works from Donk can be seen along Grey Eagle Street in London, located just behind the Truman Brewery.

Rudeboy Paste-Up Art Portrait

Pictured to the center in the image above is the first street portrait installed by Donk back in 2016, now joined by two new additions. The center portrait piece was titled "Rudeboy" and was Donk's tribute to the spirit of the rudeboy and the rebellious swagger of youth! 

Some two years after the work was first installed and the artwork has managed to survive the elements and is still looking fresh sat alongside the new additions from the artist.
