Frozen Regents Canal

OK, the water maybe frozen but somehow Banksy managed to paint these on the 'waterside' of the Regents Canal.
Banksy’s work/art/message/graffiti is held in awe by Londoners. Like the relic worship of St Therese of Lisieux, they make pilgrimages to the images that magically appear over night, tipped off by an eager press prepared to give the event as many column inches as a major exhibition.

Conor Harrington

The excellent Lazarides Gallery in Rathbone Street has brought together some of the biggest names in street art for their “Grifters” show. Not content with exhibiting the work within the gallery, pictures and sculptures will be appearing throughout London at the following sites;

David Choe and DVS - Wenlock Road, N1, Great Western Studios, W9, and Perry's Place, W1
Charlie Isoe - Kean Street, WC2 and Prestwood Street, N1
Vhils - Oval Road, NW1, and Truman Brewery, E1
Paul Insect - Broadwick Street, W1, and Southwick Mews, W2
Mode 2 - Rathbone Place, W1
Teach - Great Western Studios, W9, and Shelton Street, WC2
Invader - Truman Brewery, E1, and balloons tied to practically every lamp post in W1
Lucy McLauchlan - St John's Hill, SW11
Connor Harrington - Mercer Street, WC2

As I haven’t got time to see all the work and this is my blog I’m going to say that the Conor Harrington is by far the best.
