New Aito Kitazaki Street Art in South London

Last month saw London receive a visit from Japanese born, but Berlin based Street Artist Aito Kitazaki, who whilst over left London with four fantastic works, two of which we have to share with you below. Drawing his style of illustration from the classical styles of art to his homeland, Aito Kitazaki painted a series of works fusing characters from traditional positions in Japanese society with Japanese text, created using a mixture of spray-paint and brush work techniques. As always big thanks to the owners of the respective spaces for allowing Aito Kitazaki to add something so beautiful to their property and of course a BIG thanks to Aito Kitazaki for coming to paint and support the community projects we enjoy spending so much time on. Also big thanks to London Graffiti for putting ourselves and Aito in touch from across the Pond.
