Street Art Paste-ups by Ben Rider, Donk, and Aida Wilde

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Last month, the streets around Brick Lane in London received some colour in the form of new paste-ups by Donk, Ben Rider (Zombiesqueegee), and Aida Wilde. All of these paste-ups appeared together overnight. Ben Rider is an illustrator who has worked on high-profile works for television, music, and consumer brands. His illustrations are eye-catching and comic style, and he often prints with flourescent ink. Donk uses photography to create paste-ups. Some of these are images with historical context and imagery, which are often placed with new graphics and inks on the sepia-toned background. Others are collages (such as the radio and man's portrait with the pattern over the top) or an image of a young woman painting a model of a house. Aida Wilde's work is primarily printing, and she creates work with bright typography (the "Daddy I Want" series) as well as portraits of animals (the tiger).


Many of the paste-ups can still be seen, although some of them have been ripped slightly. Check around Star Yard and the streets that intersect with Brick Lane.


I hope to be seeing more work by these artists in the future.
