As we enjoyed a rare hot late May bank holiday in the UK, the Bank holiday Monday Shoreditch Street Art Tour discovered a fascinating range of new street art that had been put up since just the day before. One curious aspect was the number of gorgeous collaborations, in fact just for fun we could link the artist combinations in a street art “degrees of separation” web of connectivity. The main image at the top of the post features Planet Selfie & Hello The Mushroom.

Paste up artist Hello The Mushroom, previously of London now based in Oslo, has collaborated creatively with many street artists from other countries and it was a pleasure to find eye catching art works with So.Schoen.Immer.Wieder, Planet Selfie, both of Cologne, Jens Regler from Sweden and Eraquario of Brazil.

Here for good measure is a small sample of the many collaborations that have delighted and inspired us in the past year starting with a couple of my favourite street artists, Smiler and Face The Strange.

Neon Savage, City Kitty, Sketch Rat, Mowcka – March 2021
Mowcka revisited this collaboration and added a new hair piece to it, Mowcka told us
“ I put a new paste ups on the previous one because it had been broken and I wanted to keep the collaboration”
Check out the fading of the original colours since the photo below was taken in its infancy.
