Someone has painted giant faces on a wall in Brick Lane

Someone has painted giant faces on a wall in Brick Lane

One of Melbourne's finest and most recognised street artists has touched down on Brick Lane's vivid runway, painting his very first murals on Sclater Street and Clare Street in Shoreditch.

Utilising both aerosol and acrylics, Adnate’s work has garnered him worldwide acclaim, with some incredible pieces not only in Australia, but also in New York, Berlin and Toulouse. His greatest influences come from the masters of the Renaissance, like Caravaggio, but he’s also spent time in a remote aboriginal community in Australia’s Northern Territory, which clearly had a deep and long-lasting effect on him.

His work is characterised by bright blocks and splashes of colour, so this is a welcome slice of Aussie sunshine in London if ever there was one.
