Artista Street Art For The Save Brixton Arches Campaign

Yesterday in Brixton the latest installments of Street Art for the #SaveBrixtonArches campaign were put up during a paint jam in the glorious sunshine with 7 artists out painting a further six out of 40 or so shutters to be completed. Bringing the current total of shutters painted to 10 and its only fair to say that in terms of Street Art, Atlantic Road and Brixton Station Road spanning the Brixton Arches are rapidly becoming an incredible outdoor gallery dedicated to one worthy cause, and down to the fine organization of artist and contributor PINS. We will be reporting back on and sharing the complete set of finished works from yesterdays paint jam over the coming days, as soon as we can head back and snap the remaining few pieces not completed when we had to leave after seven hours of incredible fun yesterday. In the mean time enjoy an in focus view of how Artista built up her lovely and vibrant contribution to the project.

Artista set out to create one of her trademark Pop Art-Esque colourful and warm works. With a piece previously created by her for a work in association with Brake Bikes for the Femme Fierce Takeover exhibition in Croydon last month.

It was almost as if the glorious spring sunshine was trying its best to aid the creation of Artista’s flower and plant life depictions.

This character smack dab in the centre was our favourite, really loving the warm orange tones on this flower.
