Greedy Swine

A few months back I noticed a few new street artworks appearing in Brick Lane by an artist called Nathan Bowen. I really liked his unique style of seemingly messy marker pen scribbles. Although they looked like chaos at the first sight they would somehow make up images if you'd stand a few meters away from the wall. A reoccurring theme were a swine and an evil-looking Ronald McDonald.

Last Friday when I walked down Brick Lane – I actually saw Nathan doing another of his pieces – it was called Greedy Swine – he was surrounded by two other photographers snapping away the artist at work. I only managed to ask him a few questions as he rushed to finish the work.

Although I'd imagine with his work he wants to bring some sort of anti-capitalist statement across he said that he'd also wanted to make the streets look a bit nicer.
