On Sunday just gone prolifically active Street Artist Olivier Roubieu created his latest London work in Leake Street, and a lovely piece it is at that. The work features some really ‘popping’ graffiti coloured to a powerful blue scheme that really seems alive, locking around the female subject set in the centre of the piece, all punctuated, with those now all so familiar, but still exciting splashes of paint which tie his pieces together
As is always the case with any great works you catch in Leake Street, one feels a little sad to think that such time and effort will result in such a short-lived presence for the piece, adversely it makes you feel even more fortunate to have been able to catch the piece in its intended glory before it rapidly disappears. However in this instance, surprisingly as of yesterday this work was still very much intact and going strong after three days but we can’t say that is still the case as of this morning. So for anyone who hasn’t had the chance to see this work in the flesh, whether you are local or not, we hope you enjoy the snaps we got of the work below.
