Pedley Street, off Brick Lane, London, January 2020
Daniel Gilbert House, just off Brick Lane, has been doubly decorated with two contrasting pieces of art.
Ed Hicks‘ mountainous landscape is calming, with curvaceous flowers in the foreground and gentle colours leading us out into the distance. He certainly enjoys his landscape work, but that is not his only popular theme. He also produces mass and some quite scary images of faces and skulls.
On the right hand wall, we have the energetic work, I dream of balloons, of Jim Vision, another British street artist. Bright and dramatic are good words to describe his work. This piece was made in conjunction with Fanakapan, who is particularly well known for his depictions of helium balloons, with High Five on show here.
