When walking around London you may have seen some of these works, or works that look similar. Here is a guide to three artists that are seen on the reg from the West to East End.
Mighty Mo: the infamous monkey. Often found in a variety of colours and various facial expressions. If you’re walking around SoHo LOOK UP. Sometimes his work is on top of buildings. Sometimes it’s not: case below – found in Elephant and Castle. But if you come across this animal, now you know it’s MIGHTY MO!
Christiaan Nagel: known for his ‘shrooms. If you love colour and love shrooms look all over London for this sculptural street artist. The mushrooms vary in size and colour, just like Mo. And, to find his work, you too have to look up to spot it!
C215: Parisian based artist Christian Guemy’s work can often be found in the East End. Known for his stencil work, he creates elaborate street art that incorporates various layers of colour and incredible detail. While he is best known for his images of his daughter Nina, his subject, well from what we have seen, is mostly people. Truly incredible and inspirational.
Now go walk it out. Find some art. Embrace it. You never know when it will be gone… That is the beauty of Street Art – at least to me. Seriously, one day it can be there and the next day it has vanished. So take it all in. Take a picture of it. Realise you have been graced by a master of the streets. HOW COOL!!! LOVEEEE IT! LOVE LIFE. He(ART) STREET ART.
