Street Art: Evol’s Tower Blocks At Smithfield Market

Eagle-eyed reader Jeane Trend-Hill was in Smithfield yesterday checking out the latest street art creation by German artist Evol. As you can probably gather, he takes concrete blocks and uses stencils and paste-ups to create miniature tower blocks – at Smithfield he’s created a mini estate.

The blocks are actually bollards blocking off the Crossrail construction site. The artwork appeared about two weeks ago, and the guy we spoke to at Smithfield couldn’t see a reason why they’d be removed or cleaned up – which is a commendable attitude, especially compared to some others we’ve mentioned.

    Thanks laurelle2011, I also thought they were ingenious and very original. The detail was absolutely amazing. I hope Evol graces us with some more of his work.
