Flying Stiks!

This has been an incredibly arty week for me, and I have so much to share with you! Tonight I stumbled upon a very cool collection of flying Stiks at Hoxton Square (looking at streetartnews.net it seems this is a brand new mural). Stik, as most of you will know, is one of my favourite street artists. These little dudes are just so cute!

    For the first time looking at you pictures, I wonder how the people living in the houses feel about the street-art. Usually your photos show building-sites, tube stations etc, or areas that are so run down that practically anything is an improvement. But this looks like a nice residential aria, the houses nicely painted, no garbage on the streets.
    Flying Stiks may be fairly harmless as graffiti goes, but if I had to pay for that stucco to be painted every 5 years, I’d probably be pissed off at anyone who paints over it.

  2. Also remember that a lot of the time these days, people invite the artists to paint on their property

    There is a very interesting article about the human and social impact of Stik’s London works written by a human geographer on the local community blog Dulwich OnView http://dulwichonview.org.uk/2012/05/23/stiks-street-art-making-the-city-by-claiming-the-space/
