Over the past year, I have captured some excellent street art in east London, and I have several pieces to share. In this entry, I am showing work by 2Square, CodeFC, Jim Vision, Peter Drew, Zadock, and others. Keep checking back for new street art round-ups as I have plenty more to post.
This American duo have painted street art around the world, and they have recently painted work off Redchurch Road, Rivington Street, and various pieces in a car park off of Hackney Road.

CodeFC painted some work for the London Olympics last year. I blogged about them here: They were back in London painting later this summer, and I got a couple of photos. The first one is located just off of Brick Lane, but it has since been covered. The other was a location of work that CodeFC previously used for an Olympics piece, and it's still intact but tagged over. CodeFC is an Italian artist who is based in London and who paints a lot in Asia.

Jim 'Probs' Vision:
Jim Vision's artwork contains a lot of colours, wings, and fictional characters. He also seems to experiement with some new styles. Recently, a dinosaur skeleton appeared off of Scater Street, which is a different style to the usual bright colours and wings or winged creatures. The artist sometimes signs his name as 'Probs'. There's so much of his work in east London that I have only included a sample here.
Dinosaur bones...possibly a tribute to ROA?

Mr. Cenz (Julian Phethean) creates stylistic artwork featuring fluid faces out of organic shapes. One off of Club Row was painted this spring, and it was recently replaced by a similar work. I captured the artist painting it.

Peter Drew is an artist from Glasgow, Scotland. He adds paste-ups to the streets, and although I have not photographed all of the ones that I have seen (such as some vintage-style posters) for my blog, I enjoyed seeing these ones (below). They are a series of his work with various messages. There's a though-provoking tone to his artwork, and perhaps because of this, these paste-ups did not last long. The photographs below were not too controversial: "Crimethink" and "Cats 'n' stuff... War 'n' stuff". A box with one of the faces appeared on Brick Lane this October as well; I remembered the style to associate it with the artist. I enjoyed these pieces and have enjoyed seeing some of the others in the series on the artist's Facebook page.

Zadok's work is also instantly-recognisable on the streets as it features a common theme: birds.

Agents of Change:
Agents of Change is a collective group of artists, and it features artist Remi/Rough.
King's Cross, Agents of Change
Although the below artwork was attributed to CodeFC, I don't think it's his style and think it's RemiRough, a group of street artists.
I've included additional pieces by various artists below.
