New Sr. X Street Art on the Village Underground

Here we are taking a look at a fantastic recent addition to the Village Underground in Holywell Lane, Shoreditch, by artist Sr. X, a work that sadly is already gone lost amid the rotation of adverts prevalent on this spot now, but still very much worth sharing. 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 aren’t going to pretend we know what this design is entirely about, but we do know it is instantly full of that charm, humour and surrealism that is pure Sr. X.
