Ever since I lived in London two years ago during study abroad, I fell in love with countless street pieces that are sadly R.I.P. Yet, one of my favorite pieces still stands above the Village Underground in Shoreditch untouched and unscathed by vandals and the elements. Ronzo’s Crunchy the Credit Monster stands as a symbol of the recession overlooking the now gentrified Great Eastern Street, although to me, he still looks like a baby Reptar from the Rugrats (which is actually what I thought it was before I researched the piece). Recently, Ronzo and company released a video finally explaining the making of the adorable sculpture.
