Falko One "The Herd" of Elephants

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

South African street artist Falko One (Falko1) has recently been to London painting his series of elephants in a range of work known as "The Herd". The artist has been painting for 25 years, has a background in graphic design and the arts, and has painted all over the world. Falko One's newest "The Herd" series allowed him to paint several elephants across London. I've managed to capture three of these that were painted around Shoreditch/Spitalfields.


The above elephant was painted in Star Yard, which has recently been filled with a make-shift building of tin. They are apparently doing some renovation works on the buildings here, so we will probably see less work on these walls now. Also, many of the walls have been covered due to the placement of this building in the corner.


The second is placed over Stik's well-known piece of Brick Lane, which I actually dislike painting over such an iconic long-term piece and possibly changing the context of the original Stik piece.


The third and final elephant that I managed to capture appears on Fashion Street and shows a colourful yellow, red, and turquoise elephant.
