A wonderful new batch of street art paste ups from a pair of overseas artists really gave a huge make-over to some of Shoreditch’s paste up halls of fame.
Jean Peut-Etre is from France, quelle surprise, and collages letterpress and screenprinted paste ups on found vintage paper.
Boxitrixi is from Argentina and is currently a welcome resident in the UK with a glorious line in wood block printed naïve tribal characters. Boxitrixi’s paste-ups were applied with an urgent roughness leaving ripples, wrinkles and textures in the paper. The art acquired an instantly aged appearance entirely in keeping with the roughness of the printed images.
Both street artists have decorated the Shoredtich area with street art on previous visits. On this occasion, having met previously overseas they hooked on on the occasion of Jean Peut-Etre’s welcome return to Shoreditch. The way the pair layer the walls leaves you admiring both the individual prints and also the collaged aggregate.
