Blek Le Rat!

Blek le Rat - AKA Xavier Prou and godfather of street grafitti stencilling is showing some new studio created pieces in the Opera Gallery on New Bond St. My favourite work was the one outside the gallery on the hoarding.... 

....although I enjoyed the other works, they didn't feel raw and cutting edge enough in the safe surrounds of an upmarket gallery. They would have looked nicer under Waterloo bridge or on a dirty wall of a derelict building!

The Opera Gallery was also hosting some other unique pieces alongside Blek Le Rat..
..including David Mach coat hanger Marilyn Monroe sculpture - wonderful!
Very Alexander McQueen - a skull fashioned out of thousands of porcelain flowers by Joe Black.
