CCC's Street Art Contest #47 - London Wall (one of the many...)

avatar
(Edited)

Good afternoon
Hive StreetArt community


it's @trippymane with a #StreetArt post for this great contest


I do have many pictures of graffiti collected during my life in London so why not participate? I actually have quite a backlog of pictures, so I can slowly start using them for this sort of contests and give the beautiful art captured in the pictures some more visibility! (At the end of the day they are only seen by thousands of people everyday LOL 😂 )


Quick background info

I live in London since 2016 and if you've ever been here you must know how the city is filled with graffiti and very cool art (especially the Shoreditch area where I lived for a couple of years).
I did some graffiti myself when I was younger so every time I see a nice wall or graffiti I always take some pictures of it, and as I already mentioned earlier I do have a lot of this kind of pictures, I will start posting them in this contest every week and let's see for how long I can continue doing so without having to go out on the streets to lookup for some new graffiti to immortalise in pictures. (Maybe at that point I could start posting my art hehehe I'm joking LOL it would never score big as some of the art we see in this contests so I'll just keep them for a personal post to do in the future! 😁 I will post it in StreetArt most likely so you guys will see it anyway 😎)

For today's entry I do not remember much of the day I saw this wall (28 Jun 2020 thanks Google Photos LOL I'll put some more info of the shot at the bottom of the page if anyone interested!), I just remember that I was walking around central London and as soon as I saw this wall I had to take a picture immediately, I think it's a really well done piece of art! Do you agree?


This is the picture I selected for this entry

What a beautiful piece of art by Dan Kitchener


I do not know the guy and I just found his website now while doing the post as I wanted to credit him!
I decided to quote the website directly here so if someone likes his art can have a look at his website and see what he has to offer! 😎

@trippymane doing some extra publicity to local UK artists eheheh
Well from the art I have seen on the street and on his website he definitely deserves more visibility IMHO
If I can help to boost his visibility it would make me very happy! 😎


A closer look at the art

And even closer (but from the side...)

Looking closer we can see that some details of the "drawing" are not very precise, looking even closer they may look "not really well done" at first glance but once we zoom out and we see the wall as a whole then the art really comes together, those little "not really well done" details are actually the ones that give life to the drawing and without them it would just feel empty (IMHO)


What's your favourite part of this wall?
Would you do it differently?
If so what would you change?

Let me know in the comments!



PS: For me it's perfect just the way is it, and my favourite part it's definitely the coloration, the colors he used and how he gave light to the drawng with the mix of reds and yellows it's brilliant IMHO



Some info about the shot... (boring stuff...)


The shots were taken by myself with my current Android phone (OnePlus 6T) on the 28th of June 2020 one of them at exactly 12.33. It was a very nice Sunday (Google says LOL) and the pictures have been taken at exactly this coordinates : 51.5209694,-0.0750972 (LOL🤪)

Here you can see all these aforementioned info in one nice pic:

You can see the location on the map, once I clicked on it it came up with the Google Maps page of the location with the coordinates I left above:

I did add this part in case someone local in London was fancy going to take a look at this and make sure it's still there 🤪



Thanks for checking this post out!
I hope you liked the pictures!


Good luck to all the participants!


Peace! 😎

This is a very stunning graffiti art! My favorite part of the wall is the lady since she brings the art to life. Dan did an excellent job with putting all the colors of the street and the lanterns such as red, orange, green, yellow, white and grey on the dress because it really makes her part of the art. I would personally not do anything differently because when I first saw the image I thought that there might be an overload of colors but I was wrong! The closer image from the side was very pleasant. The graffiti here atleast from what I have seen is not as creative as the one you posted so thank you for posting this! I am looking forward to other graffiti art posts. Best of luck in the contest. 😊

Thanks for your comment! 😁

Yes you're right, the colors at first may seem like too many and all over the place, but the more you look at these colors the more they look just on point, after looking at the picture for a 3rd of 4th time I don't even think at the colors anymore and I just get lost in the art!

I did appreciate your point of view and how you liked the lady the most! For how crazy it sounds I think the lady being the main object of the art is the one that gets notices the less, imho!

The graffiti here atleast from what I have seen is not as creative as the one you posted so thank you for posting this! I am looking forward to other graffiti art posts. Best of luck in the contest. 😊

Thank you x3 🙏😎

Hello, friend @trppymane

Welcome to Hive.

I loved your post.

That street art is an extraordinary work of art.

I would love to find that kind of paintings in many spaces in all cities around the world. They beautify, give life and allow artists to express themselves in beautiful ways.

Congratulations.

Best regards

What you say is really on point, it gives the city a new light and gives artists the ability to express themselves, I do love the fact that London is really open to this kind of art and you can find murals like this everywhere in the city!

Thank for your comment, and for the kind words!
