Cranio from Brazil has been back in town! He has repainted one of his favourite spots with a new version of his Amazon rainforest Indian.
Cranio – Brick Lane, 2015
Previously Cranio painted versions of the Indian on 2013 and 2014. Notice the cunning little trick in the 2012 and 2013 versions which made the Indian appear to stand in front of the wall, can you see how he did it?
We will be sure to keep you posted on any news from Cranio on this visit but meanwhile, you can check out his show in the pop up gallery Fun Factory on Bethnal Green Road in 2013.
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)
