A magnificent celebration of the written word by Nomad Clan, depicting a letter and a pigeon, both methods of carrying written messages, to align with the theme of this large wall in Shoreditch on ‘connectivity’.
I am a huge fan of this talented duo, who have visited Bristol for Upfest in each of the last two years. This is a masterful work with many elements to focus on, but it is the feathers on the right hand side of the piece that I find most appealing…they have such a lightness about them.
Nomad Clan are known for their big walls and this one is big. Their concepts and ideas are so beautifully illustrated with a softness of tone that many artists appear to struggle with. I was very happy to find this piece.
I had to go to London a couple of weekends back for an important event at the Science Museum on a Monday morning, so I travelled up on the Sunday to stay with my sister in Stoke Newington. I arrived early on the Sunday (I had planned this) and decided to walk from my sister’s to Brick Lane in Shoreditch. I walked for more than fifteen miles over about five hours and took just shy of 500 pictures. I was treated to some astonishing street art, and this is the first of several posts from that trip. I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I did.
This first piece was one of several huge murals by pairs of artists on a theme of connections or connectivity organised by Global Street Art. This was a pairing of Lovepusher and Mr Cenz. I have never seen the work of Lovepusher before – he painted the ‘Future’ 3D sphere – but Mr Cenz’s work is very familiar and can be found all over the Shoreditch area.
I am a little out of my depth with London artists or the London scene and leave the detail about these pieces to bloggers much better placed to do it such as London Calling. I will post more from this wall at a later date.
