RUN Mural in Clapton, London

By Hookedblog @hookedblog

Run — detail
Hookedblog recently caught up with London based Italian street artist RUN for a drink and a chat. We spoke to the artist about his latest mural pictured here, located on Downs Road in Clapton, East London. The artist had previous painted this spot and earlier this month returned to complete this new mural in his signature style. When we spoke to RUN last week he told us about some unhappy local or 'nutter' as RUN refered to him as, who was obviously not enjoying these murals as much as us and had been trashing them by chucking white paint over the works.(See picture below or the previous mural trashed).
The newest mural also suffered the same treatment within a week of it being painted, but on visiting the spot in Clapton today we were happy to see RUN has returned to the mural and made a pretty good job of repairing the damage. Let hope it stay up for a little longer this time! Check back with us soon for more new work from RUN.
