From the rooftops to the streets with The Lost Souls After an eventful 2013, one of the most slickest group of illustrators in UK’s street art scene The Lost Souls which consists of fours members SPZero76, Captain Kris, Squirl and SiMitchell were back to doing what they do best for 2014 and that’s paint fun and colour characters.

GRAFFITI – Plin face in London Amid my latest trek to the Shoreditch area of London there was one face that kept popping up again and again, everywhere I went…. I didn’t instantly know whether they were all by one artist or by a whole host of different people but I’m assuming they are all by the artist PLIN. A quick Google search has revealed only one other image on Flickr and located the ones that I have already tagged on Flickr too.

Hari & Deepti – Black Book Gallery Hari & Deepti’s work is a Pandora box full of stories and imagination that they bring to life through their intricate paper cut light boxes and paper clay sculptures. They have always been drawn towards the imaginative aspect of story telling. Stories have so many shades and depth in them, and paper as a medium has the exact qualities to reflect and interpret them. They believe that “Paper is brutal in its simplicity as a medium. It demands the attention of the artist while it provides the softness they need to mold it in to something beautiful. It is playful, light, colorless and colorful.
From The Bronx to Brick Lane: The rise of street art tourism in Shoreditch Bright neon colours, socio-political messages and complex paste-ups regularly draw visitors down the alleyways of the East End. For many visitors, street art tours are a must-do on the London list, along with spotting the ravens at the Tower of London or enjoying the view from the Shard. Alex Mardi, a Bangkok-based artist, says: “I came from Thailand to London because of the street art. There is a lot of it here: it’s the perfect place to come.” From the Bronx to Brick Lane Street art originally evolved from the New York City graffiti culture in the 1960s (see video here), especially in the Bronx, prompted by social instability and anti-establishment movements.
Jonesy Street Art in London, the Artist Who is Our Little Secret One of the most elusive and mysterious street artists around in London at the moment is surely the artist known only as Jonesy. A darling of street art tour guides who love the fact that his art is often hidden yet in plain sight. A versatile artist Jonesy is perhaps best known as a sculptor producing works in bronze and in wood but he also produces original drawn paste ups. His sculptural work is often, but not always, placed high up on the top of street signs or on walls. Jonesy does not appear to want his work to be initially impactful as many street artists would perhaps want their work to be. Street Art: Jonesy - Jenikya's Blog I've been capturing some photographs across London of street art by an artist known as Jonesy. Jonesy creates sculptures and drawings (pasted up). There are several examples of his work dotted just off of Brick Lane and Sclater Street. A lot of these are located above eye level, and they are a bit unexpected. This artist also seems to create art related to environmental messages, birds, human head sculptures, and other installations which feature feathers.

PLAY IS SOUL FOOD – LOS REYES Los Reyes is a important part of the beginning of the PLAY IS SOUL FOOD project journey. :) :) :) It is located on the south east boarder of the state of mexico and the federal district (D.F/ mexico city). A area where it has never really been the most economically stable, Los Reyes is, like many village areas in Mexico, over populated and still slightly under developed; cost of education is high, environmental, political and financial conflicts strongly determine the rate of development. However, although the people deal with many trying issues in their everyday life, there has always been a strong sense of community. The everyday faces of the daily passers by become acquaintances, friends, family friends and even family members.
