Moving on from the colourful mash ups on Fashion Street we actually start to be able to recognise the distinctive different styles of some of the artists.
Here’s a few examples of an artist identified as Paul “Don” Smith whose work is instantly recognisable. His subjects are as diverse as they are delicate. From the stars of the 2012 Olympics to music heroes. There’s also some colourful work by Gee.
This huge colourful piece covers up a drab wall.
It’s not all about huge pieces dominating walls and buildings though, I love to spot the tiny pieces hidden away or the amusing, playful bits. Neil awaits further instructions. . .
C215 is another artist’s sign off that we start to notice. With distinctive colour motifs and detailed drawing, its a very distinct style of work.
Another very recognisable artist is Stiks. Whose minimal, adorable stick figures offer insights into contemporary society. But they also look super cute!!!
His work fetches high prices and apparently Elton John, Bono and other celebs sport him on their wall. But here you can see it for free!
The little people appear everywhere, stealing artwork, promoting harmony and eyeing up pot plants!
Next up a true icon of the street art scene, colourful postboxes and more!
