As some of you will know, one of my other hobbies is taking photographs of street art. It’s always interesting to look at the influences in street art, and often I notice Japanese influences. A while ago I was in London and I spotted this manga-esque paste-up in Shoreditch by Tian:
Tian is a French street artist who specialises in stencilled paste-ups. I love this image – it’s playful, and reminds me a lot of fashionable girls I’ve seen in Japan around areas like Harajuku.
Hooked Blog also spotted another Japanese-style piece by Tian, which actually includes some katakana:
Two great pieces of street art!
