Some Big Impressive Murals
Last week, when I took my photo walk through Kilburn, I passed the Webheath estate, where there's always some interesting street art. In fact there are many new pieces since the last time I was there, all painted as part of the London Mural Festival.
Above, a huge four-story mural of a local resident named June Barber, by the artist Smug.
This one seems very London -- a stylish looking Twiggy-like woman in the rain. (That's how I interpret it, anyway.) It's titled "Maria in Kilburn" by ALO.
I didn't see a signature on this one, depicting two women in bathing suits, one whispering to the other. Other sites attribute it to artist Albert Clegg.
This one is by Spanish artist Nacho Welles, based on a photo of one of his friends.
And finally, this one by Andre Gola shows some poor guy who has lost his head while running down that ramp. (I think it's been around a while.)
This is the same estate where I shot the mural of the insects last summer. It's now covered up by a more abstract work that I didn't photograph; you can see the new one here.
