New Ant Carver Street Art In Brick Lane

A few weeks back saw Street Artist Ant Carver take to Brick Lane to hit up his latest London mural and by far one of his best to date. Ant Carver’s style is very distinct, comprising the colourful background taking an abstract form, constructed from an elaborate process of being built up with spray paint and then deconstructed with smudges and even partly phased out with primer. It is on this platform that Ant sets to paint the detailed portraiture by brush with acrylic paints on the street. His grey-scale realistic portraits sit so well on the fluid and colourful base he composes, creating that striking effect of the beauty to be seen among the chaos. What we love most is how with many of the pieces, the eyes on the subject appear to be looking directly at you as you stand before the work, creating that sense of connection between viewer and subject. This work can be found in Hanbury Street, Brick Lane, and was put up with support from Monoprixx Not Banksy Forum.
