When you think of Kilburn in northwest London, you probably don’t associate it with street art. Well, here are some examples that can give street art in Brick Lane a run for its money.
1. Kate Moss in Kilburn.
Here she is depicted in playboy-style bunny suit, on the side of a pub just off Kilburn High rd.
2. Michael Jackson looking great here.
The King of Pop, looking rather ghoulish here on the walls of Peel Precinct.
3. James Brown the Godfather of Soul.
Another music legend found on the walls of Peel Precinct.
4. So the rumours about John Lennon and Paul McCartney in Kilburn were true.
Give it up for the Beatles!
5. A cacophony of different sketches here.
6. Cereal killer?
7. Anime influences here.
Impressive use of gradients and colour!
8. A phenomenal wall.
Love the partial brick by brick coverage to the left.
9. Green goblin girl with cuckoo clock in the background.
10. Wondering who lives here?
Side of this house gets full wall coverage.
11.The Iron Man of Kilburn.
12. It says Pulse, I think.
The street art splits this building in two with vandalised car in foreground.
13. Rise of the phoenix.
Above the fence is barbed wire and in reflection ‘Behind Bars’ is written below.
14. Celebrating community.
This finished piece appears on a board in front of scaffolding, should we see more street artists and developers working together?
15. Is this how Kilburn feels? This strong piece reads, ‘Help’.
At the top of the wall it reads ‘How long will we allow gangland terror to taint our streets . . .’
16. Some finished, some unfinished pieces.
17. A graffiti mural.
18. Diana Ross, “I will survive”, seems appropriate here.
