Once again London was recently fortunate enough to receive a visit from LA based Street Artist WRDSMTH, who on this occasion was only in town for a brief whistle-stop visit still managed the time to leave us with a lovely, humourous and inspiring trio of works placed up ain East and North 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.

Work by WRDSMTH.
Work by Megzany which caused quite a bit of controversy with the message seen here “You Are The Victim Of Your Own Rules” replacing the original message that caused a storm by all accounts and read “Don’t Be A Cunt” – which in fairness makes a very valid point.
