New Sr. X Street Art around London

Here we are taking a look at the trio of works Street Artist Sr. X has placed up around London over the last busy month he has had, with a pair of recent works in Penge and single fresh addition to Brick Lane’s ever-changing run of walls. Through his work Sr. X  sets to subvert social convention and traditional ideals with those all so humorous and at times dark twists that are very much exemplify Sr. X’s sense of sharp wit and fun, criticizing the over-abundance of pop culture and values it sets to install on society from above. All presented in that vintage style taken from 1950’s advertisements and imagery Sr. X’s work takes a look at vanity within society and offers a sarcastic take on the way in which commodity culture is ingrained within the popular sphere and how this can for many define ones’ self-worth. But it isn’t all just social commentary and critique what makes Sr. X’s output so unique it is also that his message is so often infused with that rather surreal and anarchic twist on old-fashioned values that is so fun and pure Sr. X.

We would as always wish to say thank you to the owners of the pair of spaces freshly reworked in Penge. We also would like to offer a big thank you to Sr. X for again coming down to add not one but two fantastic additions to Penge.

‘The Itching’ placed up in Hanbury Street, Brick Lane, and really showing that more sinister & almost maniacal dynamic that can be found in his designs.
