We’ve just added Iain Macarthur to The Street Art Directory. Iain is a London-based artist and illustrator and we found some of his black-and-white tiger pasteups in Hackney Wick. The artist’s biography suggests that his pieces are made from chaotic elements of patterns and nature and depict a sense of beauty and surrealism. We think these impressive tiger heads fulfil the remit.
We’ve just added Cali O to The Street Art Directory. Cali O is a London based Designer and Animator who creates digital and print designs, animations and ceramics.
The 8″x8″ ceramic tile featured here was photographed in East London. It is one of 40 of this design which were liberated on the streets of London and Paris. Titled ‘Diamonds’ it is produced with laser printed ink (inset glaze) and was for sale as a (now sold out) limited edition of 6 pieces with 3 artist’s proofs.
We’ve just added CANEMORTO to The Street Art Directory. CANEMORTO is a trio of anonymous Italian artists. The collective has been active since 2007 and have produced works all around Europe. The imagery of Canemorto mixes the language of graffiti with the cult of an evil dog deity called Txakurra, who influences the works and choices of the group.
We captured a few photos of a monochrome mural by CANEMORTO in Hackney Wick, London, in 2021 which was painted way back (in street art terms) in 2012. It is suffering a little from being tagged over lower down and is part-hidden by a large Buddleia bush but remains a magnificent piece.
