Street Art Gallery Thursday 29th – Cranio Night at Fun Factory

The party fun tonight certainly makes up in quality what it lacks in quantity.  The only event on the Shoreditch Street Art Tours calendar tonight is Cranio’s special one off one night only show at Fun Factory.

Cranio, beloved Brazil street artist has been hectically busy in London over the past few weeks with multiple new pieces up on Shoreditch Walls not to mention elsewhere.  He has also been working hard on fresh studio paintings and tonight will be the only time a cluster of large and very special hand finished prints will be seen all together by the public.

Maybe HIN will be around to speculate on why the flipped finger, the bomb belt and the genitalia on the Cranio/HIN collab mural on Grimsby St weren’t buffed but his paste up heads were!  (we think we can guess the answer)

French Stencil/Screenprint Artist Tian Decorates Streets Of Shoreditch London

Fresh art from the studio of French stencilist Tian has appeared on the streets of London.  Tian’s work first came to our attention as one of the stand out “turn up and spray” un-invited artists at Banksy’s Cans Festival in 2008.  We met when Tian came on his regular visits to London and in 2010 I wrote a profile of this artist which appeared in Issue 13 of Very Nearly Almost street art zine.

Tian enjoys working with figures, notably boxers and actresses and is also a keen fan of Japanese Shungas which are clearly an influence on some of the erotically charged work he has put up in Shoreditch.  We photographed 19 separate new pieces of work this afternoon, Tian has clearly been very very busy!

Jonesy – Favourite Shoreditch Street Artist, featured on Vandalog

One artist who consistently astonishes visitors on the Shoreditch Street Art Tours is Jonesy.  My friend RJ of Vandalog.com, the leading street art news and opinion blog bar none, invited me to write a couple of guest posts during August for his blog so I am delighted to sing the praises of the street artist known as Jonesy.

Check out the Vandalog post here

After writing and sending off the words and pics to RJ, we ran a Street Art Photography Workshop in Hackney Wick last weekend and strolling back to the skatepark via the canal after the guests had dispersed I found another Jonesy artwork on the canal.  Nothing beats the joy of finding a new piece of street art and the feeling is doubled when it’s a Jonesy.
