Australian Artist RONE visits London paints Hanbury Street and puts on a Show at Stolen Space

The East End of London has a reputation for attracting the very best international talent and the location of the Stolen Space Gallery on Osborne Street certainly helps with that.

Last year Rone, the Australian muralist painted a spectacular mural in Shoreditch and high up on a building in Leonard Street, a womans piercing face still stares out at passers by. His photo-realist style blends into the background of the walls he paints.

This year the Melbourne based artist has returned to host his first UK show ‘Wallflower’ at the Stolen Space and has also painted the prestigious spot on Hanbury Street just off from Brick Lane. The wall on the street has become known for the quality of its curation and Rone replaces the Octo-Elephant painted last year by Puerto Rican Alexis Diaz.

The artist is gaining a reputation for the spectacular, his style is hard not to enjoy, he paints beautiful women on large walls what’s not to like? Recently Rone also painted the side of a nine story building on Collins Street in Melbourne and from the pictures I’ve seen it looks spectacular indeed.

Check out the galleries below to see some of his work painting on the streets of London and at his show in the Stolen Space.
