There are some fantastic walls in London that regularly get a makeover and attract some first class work. Here this street just off Shoreditch’s Brick Lane is always worth a visit.
First up David Hooke aka ‘Meggs‘ has created this very colourful work built around an ‘acid smilie face’ and a not so happy face.
Originally from Melbourne in Australia but now based in Los Angeles, the artist has named this piece ‘Rise and Fall’ and also posted a few snaps whilst creating this masterpiece – there’s also a short video too!

His work continually references the nostalgia of childhood heroes and villains, exploring the notion of duality and an on-going question of morals, rights and authorities. Reflecting on personal experience Meggs produces energetic depictions of heroes, villains, and subverted collages of pop culture symbols.”
In total contrast to this piece is some totally different work by artist Corpse.
Featuring two faces of gentlemen – one sporting some ginger hair and the other – well slightly less hair.
