Nestled on Scouler Street, a little side road next to a car park close to the overpass for the Blackwall Tunnel. Lay three huge sleeping street art giants. Each one created by a different Brazilian street artist.
Street Artists Cranio, Alex Senna and Mag Magrela each produced a sleeping giant. All painted onto the corrogated iron boundary fence of a bike shop. Visible from the DLR line they each lay side by side all in the instantly recognisable styles of their creators.
Brazilian Street Artists in London
Brought together by Creative Agency Pigment. Their goal is to represent emerging Brazilian artists and to help them to improve their profile worldwide. It’s certainly working. Cranio is visiting London for the second time having already made an impact in his first visit. His distinctive blue people are constantly being seduced by the glories of the modern world.
Alex Senna’s work has been popping up all over the place with his distinctive black and white style. Mag Magrela meanwhile is new to the London scene. Her orange sleeping giant adds to a recent piece on Bream Street.
