Louis Masai Street Art in London

Seeing as Louis Masai’s solo exhibition kicks off at the Lollipop on the 30th of April we thought this would be a good time to share some of his Street Art that can currently be seen around London, with works in Brixton, Caledonian Road and the East End. Through his art Louis Masai sets to draw attention to endangered species from the world over through his incredible lifelike representations of the creatures in question. In his upcoming solo exhibition Batteries Not Included Masai shall be showcasing paintings, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, film and sound installations, aiming to draw attention to the plight of endangered species in the process. We shall be visiting the exhibition when it opens and reporting back on accordingly, so in the mean time here are thirteen of his works to be found currently around London.
