Over the course of Saturday and Sunday globally acclaimed Street Artist Stik laid out his freshest London piece on Hackney Road. This marks the second work from Stik in London in 2015, with the first being the ‘Sleeping Baby’ work placed up in Homerton Hospital some six months ago now (covered here).
This newest work along Hackney Road, is a real delight to see, classic Stik and superbly placed with his character furtively glancing down onto the adjacent pavement as if set to glance down upon all those pass it. As is often the case it is impressive as to how much meaning, depth and emotion Stik can generate in such an essentially minimalist formatting. What is also noticeable upon seeing such fresh work from is how clean the lines are and how smooth the texture of the piece is, it’s as if the piece has been computer generated and explains as to why Stik spends so much time on his work, when one would assume it must take him no time at all.
