Leake Street Tunnels Street Art, Spring 2016

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Leake Street tunnels underneath Waterloo train station's railway is a designated street art area in London, and it's always busy with street artists. Earlier this year, it also houses immersive theatre and games. The work here constantly changes, and it does not last long. Earlier this year, I was in the area and stopped by to see the new work. Of course, I took a lot of photographs, but I will only be displaying a tiny selection of work.


First up is a portrait of a woman wearing a mask. This is Zabou, a street artist who has been very busy in London earlier this year. (To see more of her work, read my post Recent Street Art by Zabou.)


The photographs do not do it justice, but this is a very large scale piece filling the ceiling of the tunnel. The above photograph is looking from the other end.


Next up, we have a nice portrait by Elno. 



Hannah Adamszek is the next artist to feature with an equally large portrait of a woman. (I snapped her painting of a peacock collaboration with Zimmermann last summer.)



Cityzen Kane's work features next, and his work has been increasing in scale recenty. This time, his bugs are colourful and crawling along the top of the tunnel. He also pasted up more sculptures on Sclater Street earlier in the year. Again, my photographs do not do this justice as the work is huge.


Last up, HNRX painted their massive piece on the ceiling. They painted in several areas throughout London toward the end of last year, and I covered their work here. Next weekend, Femme Fierce will complete their annual paint jam in the Leake Street tunnels. Femme Fierce is comprised of all-girl street artists, and it's a large event in the street art calendar each year.
