New Sr. X Street Art ‘Something to Fight For!’ in Stockwell

Here we are taking a look at a recent addition to Stockwell from Street Artist Sr . X placed up a couple of weeks ago. 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.

This particular work titled ‘Something to Fight For!’ very much falls under the remit of Sr. X’s penchant of surrealism enthused with a very classic strong pose seen across 20th century Propaganda posters. On this occasion it’s just a question of what do you believe in enough to stand up and fight for? This guy clearly loves his role and will not anyone get in the way of that, waving his banner and holding his book of choice so tightly on the march. What a striking and fun work for the entrance to this lane. This work can be found in Stockwell, and was put up with support from us London Calling Blog.
