Drawing attention to the badger is this David and Goliath piece by Argentinian street artist Martin Ron on the side of Village Underground, Shoreditch. On arriving in the UK, he saw newspaper headlines discussing the controversial badger cull being trialled in areas of the country. Why is it called David and Goliath? Well in this case, the badger is Goliath and David’s hand is meant to symbolise Prime Minister David Cameron.
Oh wow, look it’s some street art by Mobstr. This particular piece was spotted on the Hackney Road in East London. Mobstr is known for his text-based pieces: his witty stencil statements are instantly recognisable. You can find out more about him here.
