London has a designated Curfew Zone thanks to one of our best street artists Dr d.
Curfew Zone, Dr D
Sadly when discovered on a rush to catch the last tube the cold sleet that had been falling steadily had made the top corner of the paste up peel away but a passing kind young lady who didn’t run off with my phone when my back was turned helped with taking a photograph.

Nothing quite beats the excitement of coming across unexpected new street art on the back streets of Shoreditch. On my bicycle this afternoon I was delighted to find what appears to be work by Mila K from Sheffield. Now, I have never seen Mila K’s art in Shoreditch before and only became familiar with this artist’s work on my first ever visit to Sheffield last Summer.
Dotmasters got back to basics hitting Shoreditch and other London areas hard with his Rude Kids stencils last week. I have been finding new examples nearly every day this week and today was no exception, we discovered this little beauty during the morning tour.

On the Shoreditch Night Street Art Photography Tour tonight I went into a back yard which I had been in only earlier in the day and found a painting so new in fact the emulsion was still wet. This macabre portraiture is by Corpse, Corpse’s work was first seen in Shoreditch last year and it bore quite a resemblance to Antony Lister’s clown faced super heroes but this looks much more menacing.
A number of paired paste ups found during the morning tour was an early warning that Corpse is walking the streets of Shoreditch again.

Multi layer stencillist is exploring political similarities with this juxtaposition of Obama and Kim Jung-On which must be evident to himself if no one else.
