Shoreditch Street Art Paste-Ups Edition 2

East Londons Brick Lane and Shoreditch neighborhoods are still our goto city locations to see and photograph street art paste-ups. The area walls are alive with an ever-evolving collection of murals, stencils, stickers, graffiti, and of course street art paste-ups.

Street Art Paste-Ups in Shoreditch

We have been documenting the ephemeral art in this area for over a decade and continue to revisit these key London street art hotspots in the neighborhood as frequently as is possible, time allowing.

No two visits are ever the same with fresh new paste-up works of varying sizes continuously added to the city walls as new layers of plasters and stickers are added, older pieces fade, or get replaced/ pasted over. 

The works on the walls are continuously changing and you are always guaranteed to see something different.

This street art photographic collection of posters / paste-ups or wheatpaste for our American readers presented here is our second selection of works in an ongoing series of posts showcasing Shoreditch street art paste-ups. If you missed the first selection you can have a look first Shoreditch Street Art Paste-ups: Edition 1 here.  

Shoreditch Street Art Paste-Ups Edition 2 - Buxton Street

Featured Paste-up Street Artists

For our second collection as with the first, our focus is on street artists who tend not to work so much with mass-produced printed/photocopied posters. 

Our camera focus is drawn more to street artists producing one-off paste-ups be they hand painted, screen printed, or using other techniques such as Lino printing or collage to create their Pasteups.

For our second edition, we feature works from street artist Zombiesqueege, C3, RX-Skull, My Dog Sighs, Mowaki, City Kitty, Qwert, Neon Savage, Urban Ninja, and The Postman.

Lifesized Skeleton by artist Rx Skulls - Buxton Street

Street Artist RX Skulls

Hand printed stickers, altered street signage along with hand-printed posters are constant fixtures on the London streets by 'Adhesive Enthusiast' and American street artist Rx Skulls. The lifesized street art skeleton paste-ups pictured above is a recent addition to the ever-evolving wall on Buxton Street, that runs just of Brick Lane.

We are unsure if the artist was recently back in London visiting or if he sent the pieces to another London based artist to install on his behalf, either way, it is always refreshing to see street artists making that extra effort to scale their paste-ups poster works up.

A street artist we have yet to meet and one that we know very little about. We do know the artist is based in London and their hand-painted paste-ups featuring this wide-eyed character are visible right across the Shoreditch and Brick Lane walls and we have yet to see two the same of the artists' works. 

We are loving the paste-up piece below that incorporates the artist name in the work, both pieces pictured are pasted up on the former Seven Star pub on Brick Lane.
