Hanbury Street Mural

On a very quick dash through Brick Lane and its side streets the other day I took a few snaps of this fantastic mural on Hanbury Street. The bunny-like character on the left and second from the right is by Alex Face, the fox is by Mau Mau, and the bird is by Bon.

Bon has very cleverly incorporated the piece by Roa on the adjacent wall, making it look as if his bird is holding on to Roa’s bird.

  1. I got to interview the artist of the baby, Alex Face, there’s a really interesting story around why he paints what he does πŸ˜‰

    I know exactly where those are having photographed the Roa mural a few years ago. Superb work.

      Hi there. Sure, go ahead! But please make sure you credit me and link back to this blog. Thanks! πŸ™‚

        It’s posted now. Thanks so much, we really appreciate it! πŸ™‚

          No problem, although I didn’t realise you were going to copy the entire post. You ought to really use the ‘reblog’ function for that rather than recreating the entire post as your own.

          We do not present the posts as our own ever, and it is pretty rare that we use the whole post, but sometimes they are just so good that it pretty much writes itself. We are mainly interested in the pictures and the reblog button would always give us a truncated version of the post and that doesn’t suit our format very well at all. And we always ask first, not interesting in just reblogging everything we like as so many do without asking first.

    Toemailer, I appreciate that you asked first, but you asked to use a couple of pictures, not copy the whole post. Anyway, it’s ok this time, but you might want to reconsider the way you phrase things. It would be useful to the reader if you actually stated “This post was originally posted by Haikugirl on Picturing England” or something like that.
