Street Art: Amara, Kef, Cheba, Neoh, Masai, Airborne Mark and others

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Last year was a busy one for street art, and I managed to get a variety of pieces that I have not yet published in my blog. This blog is dedicated to a variety of street artists and their work that I have captured over several months last year.

Amara Por Dios 

Stockholm-based, the work produced by Amara Por Dios is colourful with bold, black lines to make up a abstract-organic faces from shapes. The artist had an exhibit in London earlier this year and has been back since. These photographs were taken this spring and summer.

Another recognisable street artist is Kef!, a German-based artist. Kef!'s work, like Amara Por Dios, consists of bold and black lines and bright colours to create shapes. However, his style does not include abstract human-like faces. Often, these appear to be animals. There are also a greater number of lines.


For more information on Kef!, view his Facebook page:

Airborne Mark

Airborne Mark's (also known as The Pilot) work reminds me of Victorian steampunk with one-eyed metal creatures and characters. He creates a lot of this work, including planes, in his art.



Street artist Masai specialises in painting realistic-looking animals and is inspired by African tribes and African animals. Normally, the portraits of the animals highlight conservation causes. There was an excellent piece of his work completed this summer of a quilt-patch hippo, but it was painted over extremely quickly and I never got a photograph of it.  

Massai, Kef! and Airbourne Mark

However, wooden birdhouses were placed upon some walls in east London, and these have been attributed to Masai.




Cheba is a Bristol-based street artist. This year, he painted one of the Gromit sculptures (Grosmos) for the Gromit Unleashed art and charity exhibit. In the autumn, he painted on scaffolding on Brick Lane. The patterns was similar to the Gromit that he painted.



Untay is an Isaeli-based street artist. I caught him starting a work featuring with horses on Brick Lane.

Neoh's street art depicts abstract ballerina girls. You can often see these figures dotted around east London. Typically, blue or purple paint is also used to draw the girls.

Macay's (real name Macarena Yanez) work shows vintage-themed paste-ups of large birds, floral displays and people in vintage dress. The artist is from Chile, and she created some work around Redchurch Street in east London ahead of her exhibit.

Red Gallery #R3D

The Red Gallery commissioned some artwork, which I photographed below. For more information, visit their website:


Bom.K and Liliwenn

Last summer, French street artist Bom.K and Liliwenn collaborated on a large wall on Hanbury Street off of Brick Lane. The mural depicted several parts of faces.



Jo Peel

This artist creates architectural scenes. More work can be found at the artist's website here:

Fintan Magee

After Jo Peel's work, Fintan Magee painted on the large wall near Old Street (at the Foundry). More work from the artist can be found here: 

Fintan McGee

I'm not sure who the artist is who painted the artwork with numbers.



The above is various work, including an unknown "wake up! Listen! what is your mission?" piece, work by Vexla, work by Piano, and work by LostMonkey.
