Mexican muralist Saner and French painter Remed were asked by curator Tristan Manco to work on a corporate mural in London. The mexican restaurant Wahaca, which participates in the Festival of the World in Southbank Centre, needed decoration for their eatery project. This one was built of eight shipping containers.
The outcome is a perfect and detailed mixture of Saner’s mexican folklore style combined with Remed’s strong modernism painting.
Moreover, he presents a fresh series of some of his new works:
A new Banksy seems to have been spotted in Turnpike Lane London, broaching the issue of child labour, punctual to Queen Elisabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.
The mural is set next to a store that caused an uproar a couple of years ago: A young boy was forced to work for a sweatshop, producing goods for about 100 hours weekly.
Stik is by now one of the best known and most influential street artists in GB.
During the last couple of days, he kept himself busy with reinterpreting old master paintings in Dulwich, South London. Astonishingly, they are instantly recognizable:
“The Guardian Angel” by Marcantonio Francheschini.
“The Linley Sisters” by Thomas Gainsborough.
More classic painting adaptions will be coming soon, e.g. “Three Boys” by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo.
Moreover, as part of the Dulwich Festival starting tomorrow, there will be the special “Stik Street Art Walk” on May 19th at 2.30pm, led by Stik and Ingrid Beazley at Push Studios, Blackwater Court, Blackwater Street and ending at Dulwich Picture Gallery. While Stik will present and comment, Beazley will be introducing the Dulwich Picture Gallery paintings on which Stik based his recent works.
