Brooklyn based street artist Swoon, real name Caledonia Dance Curry, yesterday put up some of her trademark paste-ups across East London. Swoon uses traditional wood cut techniques to render her evocative, ephemeral and realistic street art that draws inspiration from an array of historical and folk sources as well as people that she knows or meets on her travels. The results are exquisite, with an astounding level of craft and detail within each piece. Street Art London managed to find seven which are pictured below.
Swoon has visited London before and last year put up four pieces up on the street of which only one remains today. She also put up a piece a few weeks back (reported here) that was removed after just two days on the street. This year in London, Swoon has also been busy with other projects, having put on an exhibition at Black Rat Projects and delivered a lecture at the Bank of Ideas.
