This week on Thursday 5th February Borondo’s largest exhibition to date opens in Shoreditch at the RexRomae Gallery pop-up on Redchurch Street. This will be the artists first exhibition in London and is entitled “Animal”. In this exhibition Spanish born but London based artist Gonzalo Borondo sets to explore the conflict and contrast between our innate animal instincts and our modern day lives, which are consumed by a dependence on technology. LondonCallingBlog will be stopping by to see this exhibition at the weekend and hopefully will be able to get some pictures to share, but in the mean time here are a selection of Borondo pieces I have seen in London and where you can find them if they are still there.
This piece can be seen in Shoreditch at New Inn Yard around the back of the Old Blue Last pub.
This huge piece can be seen on Sclater Street, One of the largest pieces in the area, well worth seeing.
On Hanbury Street off Brick Lane can be found this portrait which was made by painting the window and the scratching away at the paint to create the detail.
This piece here can be found at Hackney Wick along the canal. This is one of the most imaginative pieces of street art I have seen in London, with superb use of the environment to enhance the effect.
