We have all seen graffiti around our town, but I don’t think any of us have seen some quite like this before.
UK-based artist Mobstr has stenciled simple but intriguing messages around London
The public has no idea who he is
Even on his website, he refuses to tell his identity.
All of his paintings are done on public areas without permission
After 12 years of being involved in street art, Mobstr is putting together his first exhibition titled “Sex, Drugs and Painting Walls”
According to the artist, “not because it contains any of those three things but simply because it has a good ring to it”
He doesn’t leave many clues.
But his work is clever and oftentimes funny.
He states that he is a “mobster” because he once owned a lobster named mobster
One of his favorite parts of his work is the fact that it is only temporary
Every day it is getting covered up and he is OK with that.
He said it contributes to the cycle of art.
His work is also not limited to just walls.
But regardless, he tends to have fun.
