Zabou, 41 Essex Road

I love walking around London only to be surprised to find an amazing mural or small bit of street art in the curious of places. I found this one by Zabou in Islington.  I was out in the neighborhood in the fresh of the New Year. Zabou’s website has some great images of her creating the stencil and installation with Pegasus.

I find the image appealing for the use of the Egyptian imagery against the cobalt blue color. I believe the center figure is made to resemble Rihanna. The composition is beautiful, interesting, and intriguing all at once.
