Where are we going to get our fix of new art this week, apart from on the outdoor walls in Shoreditch of course. I’ll be kicking off Thursday with a social event at The Photographers Gallery in the West End then picking up the pace with this little set of beauties:
Alexis Dias & Jaz “La Linea
Alexis Dias aka “La Pandilla”, whose Octophant mural in Shoreditch continues to amaze passersby some 8 months after its completion, joins forces with Jaz the Argentinian graffiti legend in “La Linea”.

Pro176 “Liquid Mecanism”
Pure Evil gallery takes credit for introducing us to many street art talents we have never seen before so we look forward eagerly to the work of Pro176. Look in the Pure Evil Department Store a few doors down from the usual gallery location. And yes, that’s how they have spelt the title on their email so that’s what it must be.

Brett Amory “Twenty Four In London”
At Art 14 fair last week there was a Brett Amory canvas which was breath taking portraiture. In this new show London is treated to the Brett Amory project where he spends 24 hours visiting 24 locations in one city and using the visual experience to inform a series of paintings. He has already executed this project in New York and San Francisco and we look forward to seeing his impressionist urban take on some London locations.

Cyrcle “Overthrone! Pooring Reign”
LA guys Cyrcle visited London a couple of years ago to decorate our streets with some impressive pasted collages and they return for this show at StolenSpace. They have been braving the reign, sorry – the rain on a hoist painting a very large mural in a car park as part of their London fun. Here are a couple of pieces from their 2012 visit.

Blair Zaye “Bespoken”
Ahead of all that Thursday night excitement, Blair Zaye (remember the drainpipes dripping paint down the Shoreditch walls last year?) has a solo show in the heart of the City of London.
