Gonzalo Borondo – works found in London, Summer 2014
Looking For by Gonzalo Borondo (New Inn Yard, no longer there)
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.
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.
Triade by Borondo, car park of Sclater Street, Shoreditch, 2014
Narcissus by Borondo, Hackney Wick, London 2014
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
Hackney Wick. I love the signature on the old chalk board sign of this disused pub.
Hanbury Street off Brick Lane. This portrait was etched in 2013. You can only see it when the shop is open and the shutters are up.
Off Brick Lane, painted in late 2014. May no longer be there.
Animal, an exhibition by Borondo and others at RexRomae gallery 05 – 26 Feb 2015
Prologos by Borondo, created in collaboration with Carmen Main. The lighting changed and these portraits were illuminated in a rotating pattern of lights.
Control by Borondo and Edoardo Tresoldi.
Fear by Borondo (spray painted onto hay bales)
Albeare by Borondo. Central column, 4th portrait from the top is the same face as the one etched on Hanbury Street shop window.
The final series of painting were entitled Epilogos. The 3 supsended are shot from the rear but I rather liked them like that.
