London Street Art | Jimmy C

 From his website, I have learned that James Cochran, aka Jimmy C, played a key role in the development of the underground graffiti movement in Australia during the early 1990's.
His two interests in graffiti and oil painting converged, leading to the development of Cochran's signature aerosol pointillist style; portraits or urban landscapes painted entirely from blobs of spray paint. This technique developed into what he called the 'drip paintings' and the 'scribble paintings', composed of layers of coloured drips or energetic lines to form vibrant and poetic cityscapes and portraits. Cochran now lives in London and his canvases and walls can be viewed in cities across the world. 
This piece called "Lounge Lover" is on Whitby Street. 
I also found it extremely interesting, having just come from a weekend in Amsterdam where I visited the Anne Frank House Museum, that he did this beautiful work of Anne.
