Borondo Street Art In East London

 

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 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.

  1. Very nice pieces. They all individually stand their own ground. The ones that stood out to me were the reflection and window pieces. The scratching technique is not one I’ve seen a lot of, but he certainly gives it life. I also love his use of different shades to make his work come together. Great post. I think this artist will now become part of my collection of favorites. Thanks for posting!
