Now, this is street art

On a street off Essex Road, Islington, I noticed that a cut down tree has been subtlely transformed into a nature-meets-geometrical-form thingummybob. It's signed TWRJ.I just did a bit of googling and found this video on YouTube about its creation.
Nice. More please.

  1. How nice of you to write about this (: Unfortunately as you see from the stains, some builders poured white paint over it a few days after I finished it.. (that is what some people living opposite told me)

  2. Hello! When I walked past it again approx 3 weeks ago it looked like even more paint had been thrown over it... you should go and see for yourself.

  6. The paint gives quite a nice marbled impression, though I wonder why they did that. Perhaps to make it easier to see so people don't come a cropper by walking into it in the dark?
