Last week, I covered Alex Senna's recent work on Hanbury and Bacon Streets (off Brick Lane). The South American artist is back in London to support his solo show at Unit 5 Gallery off Hackney Road, and this is around the corner from his latest large-scale mural. Senna's work is characterised by thoughtful and/or witty black and white illustrations, and he often paints a stylised bird with long legs.
This new mural shows a group of three people in a huddle. This looks like a family to me, and it appears that they are supporting each other as a unit. The wall is located on Ion Square off Hackney Road and virtually opposite the Unit 5 Gallery where the artist's work is on display.
A smaller wall outside the Unit 5 Gallery also bears a mural by Senna. This time, it is a lone figure of a man walking across a zebra crossing.
