This is an amazing piece of street art that I saw in Soho yesterday. It’s on the corner of Lexington Street & Beak Street and really is quite incredible.
My friend Chungaiz thinks that it may be by a French artist, but for the moment I remain in the dark. To be honest I don’t really care who it’s by, other than if I did know, I’d be able to find out where else I could find his/her amazing graffiti/street art.
UPDATE: Thanks to Chungaiz and the chaps at THESCRAPBOOK, we now know a bit more about this.
The rumour is that JR wanted to put his work up onto the tall chimney as part of the Tate Modern’s street art project, but he wasn’t allowed to. In protest, he’s gone and hit up streets all over the city! Fantastic.
Methinks a trip to the Tate Modern is in order this weekend.
