On Christmas Eve the Shoreditch Street Art Tour had the pleasure of bumping into Yorgos photographing a charming new street art piece in his signature style painted the night before. Ever the friendly one, Yorgos delighted guests on the tour by posing alongside his new masterpiece.
Yorgos told us that he had painted the artwork the night before but hadn’t been able to get a decent photograph. He had returned to get his daytime photograph but confessed he was a bit worried that it might have been tagged or painted over before he got there. Lucky for all is was still in pristine condition.
Having seen out the old year with that beauty, Yorgos welcomed 2024 in with another banger. This was painted on a wall some might consider complex but Yorgos seems to have found its geometry a simple problem to solve. Cubism in a couple of squares!
This wall was actually right at the spot where my very first street art tour convened in 2008 and it is I believe the first time that spot has been taken over for a full mural piece in this style.
Yorgos showed he fully understand the ephemeral nature of street art and it was just as well he got his photos on Christmas Eve, that piece was painted over this week.
I am sure we will see more from Yorgos this year, can’t wait.
