Once again London was recently fortunate enough to receive a visit from LA based Street Artist WRDSMTH, who last visited the capital in June 2018 (covered here), who on this occasion was only in town for a brief whistle-stop 2 day visit yet still managed the time to leave London with 7 of his lovely, humorous and inspiring works placed up in East and South London – 4 of which we wish to share below. Unsurprisingly WRSMTH was by profession a writer, based in LA, prior to his change of career as a Street Artist. 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.
