London-based street artist Otto Schade (who originally hails from Chile) is one of London's busiest street artists. He normally paints two styles of street art: a round silhouette style with orange/yellow or purple background with a social or political message or an object/design created with a three-dimensional ribbon design. Before Christmas, the following social/political message popped up off Shoreditch High Street.
The mural, "peace and love on the streets" features two children on either side of a Christmas tree. The children are in innocence, holding toys behind their back. The Christmas tree, however, is made out of guns, grenades and ammunition. The words "Love" and "Peace" are stenciled in the background of the piece.
