New Himbad, Marina Zumi & Alice Pasquini Street Art Collaboration In Camden Town

Earlier this week London was treated to a truly beautiful collaboration in Camden Town by London artist Himbad who was joined by visiting artists Alice Pasquini from Italy and Marian Zumi from Argentina, though based in Brazil, who are both currently in London having being part of the ‘XX: A Moment In Time’ group show currently running at the Saatchi Gallery.

The work presents a stunning fusion of styles all set to the same minimalist colour palette which expresses itself through the levels of transparency and shading, with Africa providing the theme to this striking piece. Alice Pasquini on the left has painted a soulful portrait of a young girl, often the key focus in her works, sat alongside a powerful cheetah, seemingly acting as protector of the girl. They are both set amid the same calm and minimalist backdrop of the African plains in the rest of the work, with Himbad’s background style offering texture to the traditional dynamic in Marina Zumi’s landscapes of mist-ridden mountains, which along with the trees really create a sense of depth to the scene.

Both Himbad and Marina Zumi provide a pair of Desert Foxes, very much in their own style, yet sitting so well together, Himbad’s fox has those classic all absorbing eyes that define his characters and the cheeky tongue out that is very much pure Himbad. Marina Zumi’s fox really adds a sense of movement within the scene, and despite the cold colours really has a sense of soft warmth about it’s ethereal presence.

All round a fantastic collaboration and the artists have fused such diverse styles magnificently. seamlessly creating a whole that is just absorbing. This work was put up with support from The Real Art Of Street Art.
