Lots going on at the Whitecross Street Party…… A truly enjoyable day of street art, music, food, dance and much more! Great meeting up with a few faces from the graff street art scene!!!! The last snap collage here features the artist Perspicere painstakingly working on his unraveling ribbon, a labour of love indeed!!!

Street art in Iceland

Lots of nice street art can be found in Iceland including D*FACE and ELLE snapped in Reykjavik. Other artist I can credit for snapping their street art are:  AGENT FRESCO,  EVOCA 1, ULFUR ULFUR, STROK, MAMMUT, NOT DEAD YET, KIDDY DUST, UGLY BOYS…. There are many  more murals that I could not snap due to not having enough time in Iceland. Well worth a visit but be warned Iceland is a very expensive country for eating drinking and accommodation!!!

Oooh la la thru the window!

I made this collage using three snaps I took…. Two featured the artwork of the charming engaging French artist Laurence Cammas. The third snap was taken outside the Make Space Studios…. Laurence kindly sat by the window so I could snap her next to the sexy Oooh la la artwork she painted inside her studio.  Her oriental portrait painting looking thru the window was snapped from the corridor as I looked back into the artists doorway on my way out!  The next day I blended and cropped the images to make what you now see…..  It was a great pleasure to hear from Laurence by email that she has posted this image onto her Instagram.  https://preprod.instagram.com/laurence_cms/

Work in progress from street artist Trafik along Pedley Street, off Brick Lane. Looks like this is going to be a real a stunner… Nice guy Trafik, he gave me a chocolate as I was snapping him with roller in hand painting the white squares.
