Discovering Street Art I.
I have always been fascinated by street art. While some think of street art as defacement of property, I think there is something really brave about putting your work out there to weather the law, criticism and well, the weather.
When my trip to London was finalised, being a fan of Banksy, i thought i will pay homage to whatever is left of his art on the streets of London. But i quickly realised that London street art is a movement, a revolution, a way of life, with dozens of artists contributing to this movement. There are even street art laws that govern them.
Here are three pieces by an artist known as Jimmy C, known for his signature pointillist style. There is a mural he painted in Brixton of David Bowie when he (David) was still alive, and this became a tribute site after his death. I am hoping to go see it as well.
More artists to follow.
