Koeone and Zabou Collaboration Street Art on Hackney Road

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

One of London's busiest street artists, Zabou, has returned to London at the weekend to paint one of her first murals of 2017. The mural exists on a shoe store on Hackney Road where she has previously painted. This time, she has collaborated with another artist, Koeone (Koe1). The last time I posted Zabou's work was when she refreshed her wall on The Bell pub near Petticoat Lane with "Keep Out!". Zabou is an artist who is originally from France, and her work mainly consists of portraits. She typically uses black and white but then adds a pop of bright colour, and her work normally has an element of humor in it. 


Koeone is an artist who also paints portraits and tends to use his abstract grafitti style tag to add bright colour (usually shades of pink and blue) to the head/hair of the subject while keeping the portrait (usually females) in monochrome. Koeone is from North Devon, England, and he is a self-taught artist who has painted all over the world and collaborated with other well-known artists. 


Above is a close-up of the monochrome portrait that Zabou painted as part of the collaboration. Below is Koeone's pink and blue tag element, which he added to the collaboration.
