New Stinkfish Street Art Around London

A couple of weeks back saw London receive a visit from Colombian Street Artist Stinkfish ahead of the opening of his current solo exhibition ‘Portraits in Transit’ at the BSMT Space. Having been some two years since this artist last visited London (covered here), and in spite of preparing his solo show the artist still managed to find the time to paint some five beautiful striking works around East and South London, presenting an impressive collection of beautiful portraits that are just brimming with bright vibrant colours and poignant soulful portraits.

The people in Stinkfish’s portraits come from all over the world and become the manifestation of Stinkfish’s own travels, depicting images of ordinary people going about their daily lives. Featuring people he rarely knows and never staged, the people in the photographs Stinkfish captures become the basis for his distinct stencil-based and freehand designs set alongside vibrant abstract cosmic fueled patterns that exude a sense of positive energy in his trademark bright colour palette that makes his works very much his own, whilst retaining his roots to South American art.

Stinkfish’s solo exhibition ‘Portraits in Transit’ is currently running until October 8th at BSMT Space – 5 Stoke Newington Road, Dalston – and is not to be missed, be sure to head along while you can, if you can.

This particular work features an image of a young girl from Mexico, taken by Stinkfish in 2009, who is now placed up on door in South London, quite the interesting journey this moment Stinkfish captured has taken.
