Last week in Walthamstow, Italian born, but London based, Street Artist Renato Hunto was out doing what he does best and painting his distinct and colourful signature style abstract characters on the side of a house. Hunto’s work is instantaneously recognizable upon viewing and often draws the obvious link towards Picasso. Originally a Graffiti Writer, Hunto has gone on to develop his own brand of fluid cubist creations infused with a bold block colouring, depicting for him the great universal subject, Sex. This work is certainly eye-catching as you turn the corner on this purely residential street, just brimming with colour and mystery, very much brightening up the neighbourhood.
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 third large scale mural in the project with the first work being created in Dalston by Pixel Pancho (covered here) and the second In Bethnal Green a collaboration by SPZero76, Captain Kris, Squirl, Tony Boy & The Real Dill (covered here).
