A new Boxpark has sprung up near the original but it's a bit different

So what do we know about this new Shoreditch cardboard city and its creator Ryan Hawaii?

1) South-east Londoner and artist Ryan was enlisted by Red Bull in 2015 to jazz up everybody's favourite grime star Skepta's dressing room wall as part of their Future Underground project. It looked like this:

 2) He's part of self-proclaimed 'The world's gnarliest boy band' Neverland Clan.

3) He paints clothes as well as walls.

4) But the main thing that we know is that this image makes us very happy – Ryan Hawaii, we salute you.

And what do we know about the thing itself? Honestly, not a lot. It might be a political statement, it might be a big joke, it could be a piece of art, perhaps it’s a combination. We do know it that it’s in Shoreditch near the original Boxpark, so if you’re in the area you should go and have a nosy. Oh and Skeppy’s into it.
