Well last night the votes from the panel of three judges were collated and the winners announced to eager anticipation, concluding the month of superb works that comprised ‘Behind The Curtain’ 2015. Over the course of the competition, we have seen works from sixteen artists, who have over the period of four weeks competed to win the £1000 cash prize and opportunity to paint the entire wall themselves. Each contending artist had one week to showcase their art on one of Shoreditch’s most prominent locations, with the winning spot being a tie between Perspicere from Week 2 and Luis Gomez from Week 3, both impressive pieces.
Our favourite works from the competition were from both of the collaborative pieces, with ‘Capitalism Is Rad™’ by Nick Flatt & Seeds One being the stand out work for us here at London Calling Blog and ‘Tory Zombie Apocalypse’ by Nomad Clan duo Aylo & CBloxx being our runner-up choice.
Superb work by Luis Gomez, the work in it’s more classical painterly style is beautiful and absorbing. The overall tone of the piece is somewhat dramatic, with a strong sense of movement about the work, that forces your focus to gaze around the piece, with no real central focus point.
Great work from Perspicere, who most interestingly practices Street Art without the use of paint, but with the construction of intricate and elaborate string based designs, really offering something impressive and fundamentally different from what you usually see around the East End in terms of Street Art. It certainly was a treat to see Perspicere build up this work over the course of two days.
