Whitecross Street graffiti art

Conor Harrington seems to have a thing about Regency beaux with duelling swords. Many of his paintings, in a similar spirit to the one in Whitecross Street, can be found on walls across London. He originally came from Cork in Ireland where he studied at the Limerick School of Art and Design. He is based in east London now. He started as a graffiti artist and expanded into doing impressive outdoor murals, but is not limited to that, and he produces gallery paintings as well.

Paul Don Smith is a prolific and popular street artist, working mainly in East London. He often chooses to paint characters from the entertainment world – film, sport, TV, music. His usual method is to prepare a stencil off-site, drawing it onto the wall surface and then painting from there.
