New Enigm Street Art around London

For our next post we are taking a look back at a series of works we have been fortunate enough to encounter through 2022 around East and South- East London by surrealist street artist Enigm. Over the year Enigm has continued to be one of the most active street artists currently on London’s scene, as well as making for one of the most exciting artists to land in our city for some time. Taking a rich illustrative style heavily influenced by a cross-hatching approach Enigm’s work has a very historically old-fashioned quality, the technique and colour-scheme brings to mind drawings from the Victorian era. This combined with the surreal subjects Enigm depicts in his artistic output makes Enigm one of the most original artists to currently be painting London’s streets. Few artists at the moment are offering such intriguing and captivating works in London. We look forward very much to seeing what else Enigm leaves on London’s streets during his stay in London as we head in to 2023.

The artworks below  in Penge, Crystal Palace and Stratford were put up with support from ourselves London Calling Blog. We would like to offer a big thank you to each of the space owners who donated spaces to ourselves for allowing us to find an artist to again transform their properties. As well as a massive thank you to Enigm for coming by to continue supporting this initiative and for leaving such a fantastic and intriguing series of artworks for us to enjoy in the process.
