Caught in a rainstorm

551. Hartland Road, Camden Town (1)

Another wonderful piece from the summer when I took a trip to Camden Town. This work by Dan Kitchener ticks all the boxes as far as I am concerned. A colourful wet street scene with cars and umbrellas demonstrating the amazing talent of this street artist.

As discussed previously when posting about Dan Kitchener pieces, it is all in the detail. From a distance the piece looks a bit busy and confused. But take a closer look, and the picture takes over.

Crowds of pedestrians going about their business lit by the bright neon signs and street lighting, and the cars on the right hand side of the mural, blurred as they speed along. The perfect street mural so atmospheric.
