Sony – Xperia Unleashed

Whilst walking through London last week, I came across this rather cleverly applied Graffiti. Created by ‘washing’ the stencil graphics away from the pavement, the artist leaves a temporary composition behind. The more people see it, the quicker it disappears. I also liked the contradiction and anti rebel nature. On further inspection, I found out that the graphic was actually a viral campaign by Sony.

Slinkachu

Slinkachu is as a London-based artist who creates miniature street-based installations and then photographs them.

In contrast to the political works of many artists such as Shepard Fairey and Banksy, Slinkachu’s approach to street art is more subtle. You could easily walk right past one of Slinkachu’s installations and not know it’s there. After Slinkachu has photographed his work, he leaves the installations behind for interaction from the surrounding environment, whether it be found, destroyed or disregarded.

You can view more of his work on his website.

Andrew Hem

Born during his parents’ flight from Cambodia in the wake of the Khmer Rouge genocide, Andrew Hem grew up between two distinct cultures. Hem and his family eventually settled in Los Angeles where he became inspired by the edgy LA graffiti street scene. Hem began to hone his skills on the city walls before discovering his passion of figure drawing, which he went on to develop further during his degree. Hem’s work combines two distinct cultural influences, whilst also weaving haunting atmospheric dreamy undertones to his pieces.
