Wom Man Paint Jam at Allen Gardens in Shoreditch

The Wom Man paint jam took place in Shoreditch’s Allen Gardens. The premise, a series of collaborations between female and male street artists. Working together they created a suite of murals running alongside the wall of the overground rail line.

According to the Wom Collective the whole idea of the jam was to show “how strong creativity can be when you bring the energies together”. These are the energies that can be created when people of different genders and personalities collide. Looking at the collaborations themselves you get a sense of how they have blended and worked together. Ultimately they say, this small act of togetherness can go a long way to building a world where “respect, love and balance will be the tools by which to teach a new generation”.

Dave Plant & Spiral

Confusion the finished piece from Dave Plant and Spiral. The piece is a commentary on identity and the duality that both sexes have within them. The work takes this idea one step forward and introduces technology suggesting that this might be the next evolution in the name of progression of the species. Photo courtesy of Dave Plant

LeSpleen & Kapochino

A wild psychedelic piece from Lespleen and Kapochino. The mural is a celebration of nature and its being. The connection between the artists palpable.
Mural with the overground rushing overhead. The artists chose an eclectic approach to the piece and just free flowed where the work would go. Both artists have been influenced by plant medicine and the connection that can give with nature and its surroundings.
