WRDSMTH Hits London 2017

Once again in the quiet the holidays bring London was fortunate enough to receive a visit from LA based Street Artist WRDSMTH,  who once again has left us with a lovely, humourous and inspiring set of works placed up around Central, East and West London. Unsurprisingly WRSMTH is by profession a writer, based in LA. He is a published writer and works on TV scripts and writing for documentaries. So with this in mind it is no wonder that his contribution to Street Art is to utilize his talent for writing as a creative outlet. Inspired by the Street Art scene upon moving to LA and initially planning to work in the medium of stickers, WRDSMTH then opted for to create his trademark typewriter stencil and to make the script a piece of paper wheat-pasted above, which in turn is the heart of WRDSMTH’s works. Offering a range of statements from humorous witticisms to touching messages of hope, love and freedom, these works do just make you smile upon observing.

It’s always a pleasure to have to go somewhere off the beaten track to find Street Art, as was the case with his paste-ups on telephone boxes around Westminster – we didn’t find all of these works around the West End, as despite WRDSMTH’s persistence in constantly hitting the area when over, they are often removed by the council very quickly. However we managed to find a works around Covent Garden, Brick Lane, Bethnal Green, Hoxton and Notting Hill to share with you until London receives its next visit from this fantastic artist who has so much to say
