Shop Local

Shop Local Dad's Hoxton

Not all Brickads are Ghost Signs and the most recent examples I know of are from artist Bob and Roberta Smith as part of his ‘Shop Local’ campaign at Peer Gallery.  This involved bringing together artists and sign writers to recreate the old style of advertising on behalf of local Hoxton businesses. This photo is one that I took but you can see more, including work in progress, by clicking here. The work was well received and picked up by both Time Out magazine and also tfl’s Platform for Art.
