Street artist Fanakapan recently painted a new wall in Shoreditch last week. The wall is between off Hoxton Square and features two glass clowns holding a foil smile balloon. Fanakapan started out painting items out of sweets and balloons before mastering the silver foil balloon over the past couple of years. He has recently expanded to painting glass items and using colour in his artworks. The new mural features two glass clowns, and both are painted using bright colours.
Below is a zoomed-in photograph to see the detail and shadows.
I've zoomed further into the balloon to see the artist's technique with colour, light, and shade.
I also forgot to post the artist's "X" (made in his silver balloon style), which appeared in Star Yard in January.
