New Cranio Street Art around London

OVer the summer London was treated to a visit by Brazilian Street Artist Fabio Oliveira aka Cranio, who was on his fifth visit to the UK. Whilst over Cranio hit up a series of solo works and a trio of collaborations featuring his his distinctive and trademark characters of indigenous tribesman living off the spoils from selling their land. It is always a pleasure to see fresh works from this artist and we were fortunate enough to witness four artworks from his recent visit around East London and even more lucky to have one go up in our hometown for the locals and ourselves to enjoy!

This work makes for an incredible collaboration between two artists with very disparate styles, however Dotmaster’s stencils provide the perfect scene for Cranio’s trademark indigenous characters in this work inspired by the experience of how people engage with great works of art such as the Mona Lisa in the Louvre.

This work depicts an epic battle scene between Phlegm’s characters set waging war with modern technology against Cranio’s tribal characters. This is the largest work we have seen from Cranio to date and one that is in our view the greatest artwork placed up in London this year. What an incredible concept, so well articulated by each of the artists respective iconic characters. There really is so much going on in this work, our pictures do not do it justice.
