Like the streets of 1980s New York, London’s streets today are being reclaimed by an ever-increasing army of street artists of which Sweet Toof is one of the most prolific and artful.
Sweet Toof’s work starts with and evolves out of his street art; whether as a solo graffiti artist or in collaboration with others.
Equally disciplined in traditional painting and printmaking techniques, typical tags, throw-ups, and more elaborate street pieces become a whole language that informs his studio works.
Mixing urban detritus with bygone decadence, Sweet Toof masterfully combines layers of historical and current cultural references with the ease of a grin.
This week's 'On the Street' is dedicated on more figurative works, that tackle the poetic, metaphorical and quite literal meaning of rising and falling in different nuance. Spaniard Borondo leads off with his newest wall of a man, fallen / hung in an upside down position.
Other notable pieces come from Xabier in Villabona, Jetsonorama in Perth, Seth Globepainter and Kislow in Kiev, Sam3 in Villa Real, Fintan Magee in Sydney, Hyuro in Perth, Banksy -Cheltenham and Bristol and Escif in Valencia.
