Italian artist Hunto has been hitting the streets of London this month leaving behind a series of pieces all around London’s East side.
Hunto, as many other street artists (and I know you hate this kind of denomination) started his career as a graffiti writer in the late 90s developing through the years an interesting cubist approach in his work inspired by the works of  Picasso and Braque.  These two mural, one of them painted in collaboration with another Italian artist, Millo for the Global Street Art Project, are a great examples of this.
It’s always great to see former graffiti writers to successfully manage the transition into the contemporary Art World.

    I really enjoy his work, I like how he acknowledges his style of work within his painting. It’s an interesting message
