Nether, Nether Land…

American street artist NETHER has been very active in London recently…

NETHER, Rivington Place

Here’s what NETHER’s website says about the work:

Nether is an urban art campaign that hopes to impact and beautify BMORE’s bleakness through vibrant street art with the hopes of evoking public discussion. The pieces that are wheatpasted to the chosen (usually vacant) facades comment on the city below the smog and the forces that have brought it to it’s shameful state. Nether sees his work as a force that solidifies people’s connections to locations in the city that are distinctly Baltimore. The quest is merely an attempt to reclaim and recycle the tragic landscape. This city is a place that is simultaneously loved and hated for bringing both contentment and fear, anger and joy; its vibe is a permeating force that becomes part of every mind experiencing its poetic chaos. The intent is to relentlessly pursue capturing that beauty in the mundane, that excitement in the fear, and whatever force brings out the orange and purple as a heart-felt declaration of true Bmore pride.

  1. I’ve been noticing a lot of these as well, first time I’ve come across NETHER.

  2. [...] Thanks to Ali from Picturing England for getting in touch to let me know that this piece is by NETHER.  You can see more from the artist including the same paste-up in London in her post Nether, Nether Land… [...]
