Roa is one of the world’s most famous street artists. He’s from Ghent, Belgium, and paints large scale scavenger creatures. His work is predominantly in black and white, and has a dark, morbid feel to it. He says that he enjoys painting local scavengers, and finds their role in the circle of life to be beautiful and intriguing. I’m a big fan. I’ll let you decide what you think.Read More »
Jimmy C is one of my favourite artist in the world. This guy makes street art that is beyond belief. He has a unique way of painting that I would call “street impressionism.” With the use of small dots, and dripping paint he makes vividly colourful portraits. Someday I want a piece of his work on my wall. Until that day, I’ll have to go to the streets to admire his work.Read More »
The street art in London, covers the walls of its East End. The traditionally working class, and now ultra hip area of London is a hotbed for street artists to paint, spray, paste, and sculpt their trade. This has bred an outdoor gallery of street art that few places in the world can match. The world’s most famous street artist, Banksy, has plied and perfected his trade on these walls. Beyond Banksy, however, is a world of talented, innovative, and creative artists. Some are famous, others less so, but one thing is for sure: world-class street art adorns London’s East End.
