HUH? It’s the Burning Candy Crew!Posted: January 2, 2013
I was gutted last year when one of my favourite Burning Candy Crew walls in Shoreditch was whitewashed right before the Olympics. Even though it wasn’t perhaps the most beautiful piece of street art around, it was a part of Shoreditch’s identity, and it deserved to be there.
Well, it looks like the BC Crew felt the same way I did and were just biding their time until 2012 was over, because yesterday I spotted this…
It’s the same wall that was whitewashed, and they’ve covered it again. It’s rough, and was obviously done quite quickly, but it’s brilliant. I wish I had seen them doing it!
The Burning Candy Crew is made up of a number of street artists, with nine core members: CEPT, Sweet Toof, Cyclops, Tek 33, Mighty Mo, Gold Peg, Rowdy, LL Brainwashed and Dscreet. Visitors to this blog will know that it was the wonderful Mighty Mo and his cheeky monkeys which got me into this whole street art scene. It’s a shame there’s no Mo on this new mural, but I’m liking the cat (is that Tek 33 or Rowdy?), the giant Gold Peg and Sweet Toof’s trademark teeth at the top of the image.
Nice work guys! 😀
