Shoreditch Street Art February Highlights

February was a month of unrelenting street art activity by street artists in Shoreditch, mainly wearing anoraks and wellington  boots.    Most months of the year, my friend HowAboutNo, the guy who has spent the best part of the past 10 years oscillating between wandering streets and alleys exploring street art with me and propping up a bar with me, and I throw together a pictorial review of the months street art with a few pithy words for description.   in February, a month where the elements really tested the longevity of paper based art, with a sculptural slant.  Here are just a small selection of  the highlights, for the full recap it will be worth popping over to our private blog Graffoto

Love Piepenbrinck placed several new fancy dress piggies out on the streets and has teased us with a photo on Facebook caption “Most Hidden Piggy – almost impossible to even photograph”, which we haven’t seen hide nor hair of.

Without doubt one of the cleverest and most exciting things we have seen this month, perhaps this year, has been Borondo’s face by the canal on Hackney Wick, already drooled over on this blog here.

Dee One’s Heavenly Rejects has been a delightful presence on the Shoreditch streets for about a year, his work such as they devils painted on acorns is often easy to pass by.   One of his most pleasing and most difficult to spot is this aquatic scene.

Saki’s Bitches Spread Legs in Shoreditch

Sometimes you write an email or a social media thing and these little alarm bells go off in your mind saying “don’t write that…don’t write that” but you proceed anyway.  A spectacular collection of new street art mobiles by Saki and Bitches led to us agonising over what to call this blog post, knowing that innocent accurate descriptions were doomed to look….wrong!

A set of Saki’s voluptuous erotic bitches were hanging from windows with an inviting piece of rope hanging down begging to be pulled.  Upon pulling, Saki’s bitches obligingly raised their legs and spread their knees.

See, I knew this post could not be written without even the most factual description sounding a just a bit naughty.  Still, the tour members that found it seemed to enjoy the spectacle.   Naughty Saki.

Shoreditch Street Art Photography

Street art in Shoreditch is incredibly photogenic and guests on the Shoreditch street art tours are encouraged and helped to take better photographs by our world reknown and exhibited street art photographer-guide.  Some of our guests don’t need any assistance at all and we are delighted to show the work of Urbanshooters who took these shots on a Shoreditch Street Art Tour in the past week.  Check out the detail, the narrow depth of field and the colour tones Urbanshooters has found in Jonesy’s castings on brick – beautiful.

Saki and Bitches Run Wild On Shoreditch Streets

Of all the street artists active on the streets of London, Saki and Bitches is one of our most surprising, her slight frame belies the large and high up pieces she installs on the street while her innocent smile masks her interest in vintage Japanese erotica.

The barred windows and doors of a former squat on Sclater Street evoked the idea of a cage in Saki’s mind, a cage is a thing you would find in a zoo and these cages now are the unofficial Shoreditch Life Zoo.  Saki is the zookeeper, the cages now house a trio of lively, colourful, energetic and predatory Shoreditch beasts, the kind you may see prowling through the clubs and bars of a Shoreditch evening.   Saki probably shouldn’t be regarded as just a street artist as her work is much more varied, like the very best street art though this installation starts from seeing what kind of canvas the street provides then creating something to suit that location.

She previously used this same idea of the cages to display a trio of Yoji girls, the most expensive of the high class Japanese prostitutes who during the daytime relax in gilded cages while their ultra wealthy patrons come in to inspect the fayre.

In the middle of last week, another long standing and very high piece of Saki street art, Jenny the bicycle girl (ok – we all mentally picture the Queen “Fat Bottomed Girls” song)  disappeared but on Saturday night a new sexy apparition appeared on the Shoreditch skyline, She’s a fast worker Saki!
