Here we are playing catch up with a piece put up last weekend the day before and morning of StreetFest by Lost Souls Crew members, Squirl, SPZero76, Captain Kris along with Tony Boy & The Real Dill In Bethnal Green with support from Global Street Art. On Saturday we were wandering around Bethnal Green to see the delightful Giusi Tomasello at work, as well as capture the new collaboration from Brazilian trio Bailon, Sliks & Cranio, at which point we discovered this mural was being put up along the length of the building above the work from the Brazilian trio. Getting together a day ahead of their appearance at StreetFest painting, Lost Souls members, The Real Dill & Tony Boy spent the best part of Saturday laying out this work, before heading back Sunday morning to add the finishing touches. The work depicts a myriad collection of characters all set along the cosmic theme and central character of Squirl’s ‘Astro Fox’. All involved were in fine spirits and enjoying their turns working away up on their scissor lift, gradually bringing this delightful work together and we were glad to get the chance to witness and capture these artists at work.

This wall was created as part of the ‘Colour The Capital’ project from the Forest Recycling Project who in conjunction with Global Street Art, are set to brighten up run down community spaces with a series of nine street art murals around East London. This is the second large scale mural in the project with the first work being created in Dalston by Pixel Pancho (covered here).
