London Space Invaders Resurrected

Guests on a tour a couple of weeks ago will recall the excitement of spotting a curious new Space Invader sticker.

Over a classic Union flag invader was the legend “Reactivation Team UK” and the motto #protect_them.  A little bit of digging resulted in finding 5 Space Invaders which have been “reborn”, in other words they are old classics which had disappeared from their locations due to the ravages of time, authority, disgruntled property owners or plain old sticky fingered fans.

UPDATE   (Dec 2016) – despite the presence of a reactivation sticker, LDN_027 at Bayfield Road is not a reactivated Invader, also LDN_028 was activated by the French team.  Also, the Union Flag Invader was not reactivated by the UK Reactivation Team.

Art From Arrex. Stick It.

We love a beautiful sticker and in the past few days have noticed a fresh bunch of stickers by Arrex aka RX from Portland Oregon. His stickers appeared in tandem with a clutch from home grown talent Stickee aka Steek.

The stickers have beautiful colour combinations and are seriously well made, a visit from Arrex always leaves our street furniture that much more colourful and boney.

A few years ago we had the pleasure of attending a sticker making workshop by Stickee at the High Rollers Society Gallery, check that workshop out here and believe that you can do it too.

Sticker Art In Shoreditch

Sometimes you are just wandering around taking snaps of street art, it’s all bit random when click/click/click- out of nowhere a theme emerges. So it was this weekend when three consecutive lampposts yielded stickers that caught my eye.

I just love this manic cat surfing a pizza based board by the legend that is Bob Motown.

Neonita’s painted monsters have been making an impact since I first saw them on the side of The Foundry in early 2010, and just a few days later I bumped into her when we both appeared on a panel discussion on Resonance FM. I don’t recall seeing a sticker from her before but this one looks stunning.  I was struck by coincidence of composition in those two stickers.

All the way from Brazil, Alex Senna who was in town recently and painted the old Foundry Building dropped this sticker.

Remember folks, stickers are art and this trio reinforces the message!

 

PS – just a couple of hours after writing that I don’t recall seeing a sticker by Neonita before, I found a second sticker, this time in a very attractive green hue and on a lovely ripped and torn background.

Clet Abraham Street Art Stickers in Putney, London

An trip to Putney on the banks of the River Thames in West London highlighted how far and wide Italian street artist Clet Abraham has scattered his wonderful road sign subversions.

We reported last year on the fruit of Clet Abraham’s visit to Shoreditch and the City district here.

Apart from sighting the rich crop deposited around Shoreditch last November, we have seen Clet Abrahams stickers on signs from The City to Oxford St and Soho to Sloane Square.

At last, another thing to smile at in Putney apart from Chelsea tractors caught by a rising tide on the river bank.
