Borondo: London street art and show @ RexRomae 2015

Gonzalo Borondo – works found in London, Summer 2014

 

Looking For by Borondo 2014

Looking For by Gonzalo Borondo  (New Inn Yard, no longer there)

 

Artist Borondo 2014

Head by Borondo & Diaz (car park, off Brick Lane, no longer there)  I photographed both these heads by Borondo because of their painterly quality.  Over that summer, 2014, Borondo became one of my favourite street artists working in London.

 

Scratch painting, Shoreditch, London 2014

He also specialises in scratch glass portraits. This piece is scratched onto the glass of an disused shop which was put of business since the 2008 Recession.

Last summer Borondo painted 2 narrow boats. This one and another entitled Ophelia, after the painting by Millais. I searched for Ophelia but never saw the painting. You can see it via this link on Street Art News

The final series of painting were entitled Epilogos. The 3 supsended are shot from the rear but I rather liked them like that.
