Over the past Summer some guests on the Shoreditch Street Art Tour were introduced to an unusual interaction between street art and flyposting. The artist Mustafa Hulusi turned illegal adverts on walls into art by declaring them “A Retrospective of Flyposting”.
This was clever and amusing. This month, Mustafa Hulusi has an exhibition in a space in the East End called “Flyposting”, a collection of art imagery and signage which Hulusi has put up on street walls since 1998.
Since I first became aware of Hulusi in 2008 when he participated in a panel talk it has been a pleasure to find and photograph Hulusi’s art on the streets, always paste ups and always the same size as standard flyposting formats.
There is a much deeper consideration of Mustapha Hulusi’s work and loads more photos from the past, from the recent street campaign and from the exhibition on another blog which I write on here
Do hurry, the exhibition only runs until the 30th of the month.
