Street art in Shoreditch used to be most revered when it involved spraying stencilled images on walls but recently the status of the sculpture as street art media has been firmly in the ascendant. T.Wat has just installed this epic bomb, sitting on the façade of this beautifully decayed building in Shoreditch..
Guests on the Shoreditch Street Art Tour will all be familiar with my love of Jonesy’s sculptures which we cross bridges, ford wastelands and risk death on the roads to see. This one recently succumbed to the art thieves, one man’s ephemerality being another man’s shameless immoral sequestration from public view.
The artist Three, also known as 3x3x3 from Hong Kong was evidently back in London recently and left a few metal tags on Shoreditch walls. Apart from their own intrinsic beauty, each one presents a gorgeous photographic opportunity with abstract colour washes, wood grain, textures and surface discontinuities to provide a wonderful background to each of the pieces. See also the featured image at the top of this post, much love.
There are many many other sculptures of various sizes and vintage decorating our streets and like this shiny bird on brick lane, not all are screaming a name, a gallery location or a website, so here is to Anonymous and their beautiful Shoreditch sculptures.
