Coinciding with the Hackney WickED festival, street artist Stik is painting what must be his largest piece yet. The willowy figure can be found next to the Films on Fridges pop-up cinema on the Fish Island area of Hackney Wick. To get a good view, head up to the roof terrace in Forman’s Smokehouse gallery. While there, be sure to check out the small but special I Am Braziliality exhibition, which contains paintings, photographs and sculpture inspired by Brazilian culture (including three pieces by colourful street artist Milo Tchais).
Now re-read that paragraph, and contemplate how the area has changed in the past few years.
See our map of Stik’s work (perhaps a little out-of-date…do leave a comment if you know of new pieces).
