Nearly four years have passed since South American (São Paulo) street artist Alex Senna has come to London to paint art on the streets. I originally covered a selection of his work here, when he hit up London in 2013 and painted several walls and shutters across east London. I enjoyed the simple black and white illustrations, which often evoked a sense of humour and perspective. Senna is currently in London to support his solo show at Unit 5 Gallery, and he's painted two murals so far at Bacon Street and Hanbury Street.
The above mural is painted on Hanbury Street. The artist has been experimenting with other styles since his last visit, and the elongated shadow features in some of his work. This style appears on Hanbury Street against the white wall where a figure of a man is casting a shadow. The artist has painted his bird illustration next to the man.
A group of cyclists on a bicycle has been painted on Bacon Street.
