Over the last week London has been hit by US Street Artist Mr. Never Satisfied who has thus far laid out a pair of works around London’s East End. Firstly with a work in Paradise Row, Bethnal Green, with support from The Hidden Streets Of London and secondly in New North Place, Shoreditch. This Brooklyn based artist and self proclaimed ‘naysayer’ has been on a tour of Europe of late, and whilst in London laid out works focused on his trademark crying owl characters. The artists very name derives from the fact that his friends consider him to be overly critical of his own works. Another recurring theme in Mr. Never Satisfied’s works is the price tag, on these two pieces set at $28.01, which is a reference to how he feels he sells himself short as an artist. For this artist painting on the streets is a means of working out a sense of depression and sadness and often in his work can be spied some accompanying phrases, which express the emotions and feelings with which he is feeling at the time of the piece being created.
Work in Paradise Row, Bethnal Green.
Work in New North Place, Shoreditch.
