Elvis on Hanbury Street,  London,  July 2017

British artist Shok-1, based in London,  spray paints walls with intriguing X-ray works, using freehand techniques to create the translucent effects.

His recent X-Pop series brings us his intricate views of major icons and characters. This pelvic piece brings hip-shaking Elvis to the gate of the Truman Brewery in London. It is presented in black on a silver background, referring to the palette of the famous Elvis paintings by Warhol, where silver was said to refer to the ‘silver screen’ of Hollywood.

    1. I have a little project to capture street art in context, preferably with people reacting with it. But I don’t always have the time that requires.
      This artist is very interesting – a Chemistry qualified person so there is some science there as well as art – and I’ll be watching for more of his work
