New Street Art By NEOH

A wall which was virgin brick as we passed at 11am yesterday this morning sported a gorgeous new piece of street art. Neoh is an unusual character with roots firmly planted in the coarser end of graffiti, the emphasis is more on being “up” than on elaborate style.

However, when Neoh puts his arty hat on, brilliant impressionist characters emerge including this energetic ballerina conjured into existence last night. The repetition of the cubist tinged faces has resulted in the motion of the ballerina being captured in her head as her whole body pirhouettes.   we get simultaneous front and rear views. This is a girl fully committed to the sinuous motion of the ballet. We are willing to speculate that no mural permission broker was involved in this new one!

We have been unstinting admirers not only of Neoh’s graff but the awesome movement and economy in his impressionist dancers.

It is such a delight to unexpectedly find new pieces of art on the street and Neoh’s speed, attitude and single-minded determination to get up in a variety of different media is really what graffiti AND street art is all about.

Borondo London Exhibition – “Animal”

Spanish street artist Borondo moved to London in early 2014 and has been a firm favourite among the guests of Shoreditch Street Art Tours ever since for street art such as these:

He made us wait quite a while for a gallery exhibition but the wait is over, his show “Animals” is in the London Newcastle space on Redchurch street and is a superb exhibition.
