On the way home from work this evening, we stepped off the bus in Shoreditch to take a quick look for any new art works. I spotted this painting in Blackall Street and it intrigued me because instead of Artista’s usual ‘flying toast’ figure, this time we find a flying bottle!
Blackall Street is quite narrow making it hard to photograph a large canvas such as this one so I had to stitch several frames together. That has left a slight distortion to the perspective but I don’t think it matters too much. Also the light wasn’t very good as it was the evening. (Yes, I know, the poor workman blames his tools…)
I later discovered that this work was in fact the result of a collaboration between Artista and Morgandy. Either way, it is a notable work.
