The Walls Project in London


The Walls Project is a series of legal spots organized by the folks behind Global Street Art. To date, they’ve organized over fifty of spots in London for local and international artists to paint. A lot of the spots they find are the roll-down shutters for shops in East London. It’s great to know that there are a couple of friendly guys in London who are simply interested in helping artists find more spots to paint and making their daily commutes a bit more interesting. You can see more of the walls and a map here.

A side note: Global Street Art are currently working on releasing their first book through Unbound, a sort of Kickstarter for books.

Here are a few of my favorites shutter pieces from The Walls Project:

The Krah & Milo Tchais Hit London

Here’s a look at the latest street art collaboration from London’s own The Krah and Brazilian artist Milo Tchais.

The Krah first started painting the streets and the subway trains of Athens in 1997, but his graffiti and street-art can also be seen in the streets all over Europe and places such as Tokyo and Bangkok. Since then The Krah has also exhibited in galleries both in London and internationally, as well as holding many group shows alongside artists such as Os Gêmeos, D-face, Sickboy and Swoon, which may explain a thing or two about his latest collaboration.

The piece which can be seen sprawled across the front of London’s Red Gallery (same building as the iconic Foundry) also shares it home with a number of other prolific street art masterpieces.  Artists such as Part2ism (seen below) and Roa are all known to have left their marks there.

Right now, if I were in the market for a screen print, I would not be spending very much money. I’d be buying a quality image and looking for a deal on price. Well if you’re like me with screen prints and you like The Krah, today is your lucky day. The above 5 color screen print is an edition of 75 and the price is £75. They are for sale on

Great in ’08: The Krah Says…

As part of Vandalog’s “Great in ’08” series, which will be running every day for the rest of the month. Check out previous posts here. Street artists from across the world have been offered one post to “gift” to one artist that they feel has been doing great work recently. Today it’s The Krah‘s turn.

Who is one artist doing really great work right now?

The Krah: Bizare (aka Stelios Faitakis) from Athens Greece.

Concrete Canvas’ The Krah Interview

Concrete Canvas has just posted a great interview with The Krah. Among other topics, The Krah’s recent project of locking pieces to the street is discussed:

We featured your ‘locked up’ work on Concrete Canvas last week, what inspired you to do this and do you reckon those pieces will avoid the buff?
I got inspired by Revs from New York, he never used pad locks but what he did was welded sculptures of graff letters in the streets. I got fed up of people stealing my work, I found that whatever I put up was gone a day later. So I locked them to fuck with people.The thing that I don’t like is that they don’t take it because they like it they take it to sell it on. The good thing is that it confuses the authorities they just don’t understand it, is it graffiti? Is it DIY gone mad? What is it? Its quick to put up and the scavengers find it harder to steal so it stays up the longest. I will be making sculptures that will get locked up and I also have lots of other tricks that you will see soon.
