My Dog Sighs and Midge Collaborate on some cool Street Art paste ups in London
Look hard enough and you are bound to spot one of the numerous little paste ups appearing around the city from artists My Dog Sighs and Midge. All are unique and created on different pages seemingly taken from old magazines then stuck up around Shoreditch.
The pieces are only around A4 size and you’ve got to look hard because they are not immediately obvious to spot, nestled as they are amongst the other tags and paste ups on the walls of the area. Undoubtedly though the quality of the works is suberb, all different and unique the artists have taken time to collaborate on a really top drawer series of drawings. The trick is to try and find them all.
My Dog Sighs has also added a number of drawings featuring his ‘hug’ character and these too can be spotted all over the place. The Hug takes a different form to the collaboration work with Midge but is no less fun to look at and the quality is great.
So for what I managed to find today, check out the gallery below they are a mixture of Hugs and collaborations so hope you enjoy them.

Update – 16th December 2013. A quick wander down to Blackall Street on a gloomy evening revealed a few more paste ups and the odd sticker. The street is one of the best places for paste up art in the East End so perhaps no suprise that the duo have chosen that street to showcase much of their work.
