Colourful Camden

I was in Camden at the weekend and spotted this fantastic, colourful wall by my favourite street artist, Dan Kitchener and Amara Por Dios. Isn’t it great?

Upfest: The Spirit of Tokyo

One of my all-time favourite street artists is Dan Kitchener (DANK), and I am absolutely in love with the Japan-inspired work he does. You can imagine how thrilled I was when I heard he would be painting an epic wall really close to where I live in Bristol. When I went along at the beginning of Upfest the work had barely begun (well, the wall had been painted entirely black, but there was only an outline of what was to come).

A little later some colour had been filled in, but there was still a long way to go.

Finally this week I noticed it had been finished – and it was worth the wait!

Wow. Just wow.

Incidentally, limited edition hand finished prints of ‘The Queen of Neon’ are currently available from the Upfest Gallery and online here. They are a very reasonable price… I just wish I could justify it to myself!


DANK on the Southbank

I went to London last weekend and spotted this piece of street art by my favourite artist, Dan Kitchener (DANK) on the Southbank:

Back in June, my favourite street artist Dan Kitchener (DANK) visited Bristol and painted this masterpiece right near my house…
