A diverse set of spray can antics from East London

Ben Eine in London immediately after the London riots. 

Sweet Toof in Hackney Wick. I'd know those gums anywhere! 

Malarky on Brick Lane - a year or two ago his characters were ubiquitous, adding colour to bland spaces. Since then a lot more artists are competing over fewer spots as East London continues to develop. 

This piece by Roa, famous for his balck and white animals, is still there for all to see in the Red Market on Rivington Street.

A shutter by Lucas on Redchurch Street. 

Ikano of course! It always helps when someone includes a website. 

Not enough artists use humour in their work. Hin is an exception then, combining child-like illustration with realistic paste-ups. 

The large robot is by Parlee from the UK, who only took up painting again in the last 2-3 years after a long hiatus. 

A Cheshire cat on Cheshire Street by Masai. 

Ronzo on Redchurch Street

A classic piece by Phlegm on Great Eastern street which is still going strong today.
