Swoon New Street Piece - London, UK Brooklyn based street artist Swoon is in London and she pasted up one of her intricate large work in the East London area yesterday. Her work is often portraits of everyday people contrasted by both art and historical elements and this piece is no exception. Last time she visited London back in November 2010 she left 4 pieces pasted up on the streets so hopefully this first installation is just a beginning closely followed by some other work by her. Take a look at some more images after the break and then check back with us shortly for more street art updates from London. 100 of the Best Street Art Photos for 2013 December 13, 2013 in Art, Painting, Street art As 2013 comes to a close, we’ve scoured the world to find the best street art created over the last couple of years.
