Jim Vision paints Star Wars wall in Brick Lane

It was time to say goodbye to the beloved Terry Pratchett mural when Jim Vision headed out to the wall on Pedley street last week.

After a strong 8 months, the Terry Pratchett mural was looking slightly worse for wear, so Jim decided to pay tribute to another great artist that has inspired him over the years.

Noriyoshi Ohrai was the man behind the legendary Star Wars posters from the 80’s including the notable ‘Empire Strikes Back’, alongside artwork for the Godzilla posters and the Goonies original artwork. Ohrai passed at the end of October, so as an homage to this incredible talent, Jim Vision recreated some of the original Star Wars artwork. The paint started last week and will be finished in the coming two weeks in preparation for the Star Wars ‘The Artist Awakens’ exhibition from Incandescent Art on the 17th December where you will be able to find original artwork from Jim Vision.

In the meantime keep Instagramming, Tweeting and having a peek at the wall that will be. We’ll see you on the street!

Happy Halloween from EndoftheLine

Our favourite time of year is upon us!

The trees have taken on the beautiful colours of fire, the mornings are getting cold and crisp and there’s an abundance of sweets to choose from in our local supermarkets. That’s right, we could go on about all the reasons to love October, but the main one for us is of course Halloween.

We’re suckers for a good dress up and face paint, and what better reason to do it than scare our kids right out of their skin in the name of Hallow’s Eve. Jim Vision seconds this notion and does this well with apt artwork dotted around the area that’ll make your skin crawl and make you turn screaming ‘Mum!’

This year’s Halloween wall is in the works and will appear just before that special day so keep your eyes peeled, but in the meantime we take a look back at some of the best spooky street art from Jim Vision…

We start our collection with the Zombie Apocalypse wall on Braithwaite street that was installed in preparation for the Rockwell Horror show held last year at Rockwell House.

Next up is a few Jim Vision classics complete with the usual blood, gore, swords and supernatural characters, including the Dark Elf, The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Slough feg and the Darksiders wall… Keep those bottoms tight and enjoy!

Thanks to all of our photographers who have taken great snaps of these walls!

Jim Vision’s Dancers

So, we didn’t realise this was a thing, but apparently it’s World Ballet Day today….Happy (belated) World Ballet Day! In honour of this bizarre worldwide holiday we’ve compiled a few of our favourite shots of dancers in front of Jim Visions walls.

Below are the images from the Breakdown Circus crew at the Trocadero, Christian & Mikaela in Buenos Aires, Justin Reid Instagram grab from shutter in Bushwick NY, Vik Taak shooting Olivia Grace Cowley on Redchurch street & the models for Mei Hui store in Brick lane, Turville street.

In light of these great images, we’d also like to bring attention to 2 great photographers among the bunch that have taken some stunning shots of dancers in front of walls:

Vik Taak who is a London based photographer who has been taking some images of dancer Olivia Grace Cowley in front of a number of pieces including Jim Vision, Mr Cenz & David Walker.

Justin Reid is a Brooklyn based dance photographer who has taken shots of a number of different talents everywhere from Brooklyn bridge to the Botanical gardens.

Take a look at some of their snaps below…
