Yesterday in Brockley we were lucky enough to catch up with Artista once again, on this occasion at work for the Brockley Street Art Festival currently underway until June 6th. Over the last couple of weeks Artista has been busy on two separate rampages about London, placing up on two occasions, four Flying Toast works in a single day, well yesterday Artista matched that again and laid out four more Flying Toast characters, this time in a single work, making for a incredible twelve Flying Toast works put up in a fortnight around London. For this piece Artista went all out on the concept and portrayed her four Flying Toast characters in a variety of altered positions and all accompanied by an aspect of a traditional English Breakfast all set to a night time dream sequence. All in all a great day, an absolute pleasure to catch Artista at work again, and all in all a great contribution to Brockley’s newly emerging Street Art scene.

The old adage is start the day on a egg, so that’s what Artista appeared to do with the work.
