Zezao x The Canals Project!

The Canals Project is a new initiative that's kicked off along the London Canals, bringing together extensive wall space with a roster of international graffiti artists!The first mural brought Brazil's Zezao to Hackney Wick where he painted one of his distinctive abstract pieces. 

I first saw Zezao's work in the Graffiti Brazil book and recently discovered his facebook page which he keeps updated. His work stood out due to its water association, each piece was placed next to man hole covers or along hard to reach water ways so I guess he was the perfect choice for painting an unreachable wall in Hackney Wick! You can see the results of his effort below and check out the cool video by Cedar Lewisohn. A great idea with great collaborations, just the kind of projects I'd love to see popping up in Aberdeen!
