Woodseer, Shoreditch

Woodseer Street is one of the many little streets that runs off of Brick Lane.   In September 2016 I saw quite a few little stencils and paste ups here (with a few other things).

below: A large Plin face at the end of the street.

painting by street artist plin of a black and white face that is mostly mouth - a large rectangular mouth with a lot of little teeth, two eyes and only a small bit of black hair. On a brick wall by a sign (street sign) that says Woodseer St. E.1. It also has the name in arabic.

below: Another red headed woman by C3 beside a wrdsmith typewriter that will always wonder. Period.

three pieces of street art, a poster with drawing of flower in pink and red with blue background, a red wordsmith typewriter with a page that says I will always wonder. period. and lastly, a girl, standing, almost life sized, with red hair and a red heart on her cardigan.

below: Soldier silhouette by Ben Naz .  He was born in Strasbourg, France in the late 70’s, the son of a Filipino father and a French mother.   His street art career lasted for more than 20 years but sadly was recently ended when he died of cancer.

below: An electric creature, four legs and a tail.

street art paste up of a drawing of an electric plug that has been made into a four legged creature.

below: The layers of interaction.  First there was a man painted on a wall who was standing on the sidewalk.  Now a torn poster covers his mid-section, a poster that is torn, peeling, and written on.  He was a two headed man but that’s not in the photo.

a man painted on a wall, with feet at pavement level, standing, no clothes, then a torn poster on top of it, the someone has written Syria in red on the poster which is torn and peeling off. In the bottom corner there is a small graffiti of a woman's head in profile

below: There was one mural on this street and this is it.  Unfortunately, the signature has been tagged over and is very difficult to read but I’m fairly certain that it says Bicicleta, a Brazilian artist.

below: Broken man on a black pole, even all the hands can’t keep him together – or maybe they’re tearing him apart?

below: Pink eye.

below: There are so many people in his head, a paste-up.  At first I thought that it was by Motormannen but they are a music group, not an artist …. and if you look closely that’s actually a sticker that’s been placed on top of the poster.

a brick wall beside a metal gate, behind the gate is a motorcycle, on the brick wall are two street art paste ups, a warning poison label and a poster by M. Torannen of a man with the top of head opened up and four people standing inside.

below: I started this post with a face and I’ll end with one too.  There’s a bit more colour in this one and the mouth’s not quite as big 🙂
