New Muretz Street Art In London

A couple of weeks ago London received a visit from Sao Paulo based Street Artist Mauro Golin, aka Muretz, who on his short visit left London with two works, one in East London and one in North London. Muretz’s works are defined by his distinctive style focusing on soft depictions of playful and imaginative ideas. Which is exactly what he has done with his latest pair of London works.

This is a superb work, which makes fantastic use of of the space, depicting a skeleton sat on some steps outside a house casually looking at his phone.

Muretz’s second London work, with a take on a common theme in his work, namely that of the depiction of a character wearing 3D glasses. This in turn creates its own image of a Anaglyph 3D style, which contain two differently filtered coloured images, one for each eye. So when the image is viewed through the filtered lenses of Anaglyph glasses, each of the two images are viewed by the correct eye to reveal the stereoscopic image within.

    Thanks for the continuing updates – I photographed this last week on Commercial Street but didn’t recognise the artist!

    I’m hoping to get down to London on Friday this week – is there any street art action going on that day, I wonder?

    Bye for now and keep up the good work! Paul

    • Hi Paul, pleasure to have helped, that’s what we set to do here. We don’t know of anything happening as of yet London way on Friday, but there’s a few new pieces going up around Brick Lane right now, including works from Ben Eine and also Dale Grimshaw. Thanks for the kind words!
