Dale Grimshaw, Hanbury Street, London, September 2016

425. Hanbury Street, Shoreditch(1)

Dale Grimshaw must produce some of the most recognisable street art in the UK. This artist, originally from Lancashire, paints the most incredible faces adorned with face paints, and some additional wildstyle writing alongside the piece.

The pieces are haunting and captivating, he is a master of the large mural. In the last few weeks I have photographed a few of his works, but this is the first to make it into the blog.

This amazing work, painted on the side kitchen entrance to the Preem restaurant, depicts the face of a West Papua New Guinean. Grimshaw is currently supporting a campaign to free the West PNG people from the grips of Indonesian ‘occupation’. I didn’t know any of this stuff until I started to find out more on various websites, including this great post on Hooked website.

I am completely in awe of this amazing work, and I find myself saying ‘I don’t know how he does it’ far too often. Amazing piece.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
